Best BBQ2011 Finalist See 2011’s Winner »
58 Front St., Issaquah, WA 98027
Kansas City is famous for its ribs and its sweet/hot barbecue sauce as thick as syrup and dark as polished mahogany. And Kansas City is where Stan Phillips of Issaquah's Stan's Bar-B-Q hails from. The menu is blessedly simple: just barbecue and things that go with barbecue. There are no salads, no burgers, no fish—nothing to distract from the low glory of meat, properly smoked. Stan's offers a sweet sauce that is sugary and stinging—a traditional tomato-based Kansas City sauce. Bracketing this are a mild one the color of old bricks and a spicy one that's dark and murkily sweet, with a slight, lingering burn. All of them are good, but nothing's as good as the meat left alone.
