Anthony Bourdain honors Oklahoma Joe's BBQ

Anthony Bourdain, world-renowned chef, host of the Travel Channel’s "No Reservations" and author of "Kitchen Confidential," has named Oklahoma Joe’s BBQ restaurant as one of his “13 Places to Eat Before You Die”.

Bourdain dished up the KC honor in a story in the June issue of Men’s Health Magazine in an "Eat Like a Man" series of articles.

Oklahoma Joe’s BBQ, in Kansas City, Kan., was named along with restaurants in New York, Chicago, Napa Valley, Seattle, and restaurants in Great Britain, Spain, Singapore and Japan.

Oklahoma Joe’s opened in a gas station at 47th & Mission in 1996 and in 2005 opened another restaurant at 119th & Strang Line Road in Olathe.
