A cheeseburger is always a delicious treat, but a cheeseburger with bacon is the ultimate, delicious treat. I love cheeseburgers with all the toppings such as lettuce, tomato, onion, mayo, and ketchup.

Some of the best burgers that I’ve had have been at Five Guys and In-N-Out. Whenever I’ve been out west, I always try to stop at an In-N-Out at least once. I order a double with Animal fries and a Diet Coke. Five Guys is pretty local and comparable (in some ways) to In-N-Out. At Five Guys, I like how they have malt vinegar to dip fries in – my favorite. And speaking of fries, Five Guys give you A LOT! All in all, I just love a good cheeseburger… and fries!


Mac and cheese on the side, what?!


Ribs and Slaw.



Two of favorite things: smoked ribs with a dry rub and purple cabbage slaw. Now, this is lunch!

The ribs’ smokiness and spices go together like two peas in a pod.  The crunchy, sweet cole slaw complements as a side dish.  AND I topped it off with a Diet Coke! Oh, and did I ever mention my love for Diet Coke?  (Let’s leave that subject for another post!)

Kansas City is known for their BBQ and here are few of my favorite places:
Arthur Bryant’s– Any sandwich with fries will do and they’re sausage is legitimate. Also, I took a tour of the back of the restaurant  and learned a few things about the kitchen, smoking meat, and the history of this awesome place.

Gates BBQ– I love their ribs, fries, fried shrimp, and seasoned veggies (these aren’t like your regular veggies!).  My friend Rob introduced me to Gates and have loved that place since!

Smokin’ Guns– Great brisket and turkey!

Oklahoma Joe’s– Awesome ribs and that’s all you need to know!
