Nita and I have a firm policy within our small organization. After every engagement shoot we indulge ourselves in either a round of tacos or a plate of fine Bar-B-Q. So it was upon the completion of an Engagement Shoot in beautiful downtown Lee’s Summit we indulged ourselves at one of our old favorites, The Filling Station.
The Filling Station is of course a converted gas station complete with outdoor picnic tables, the smoker piping away in a far corner and always the Royals playing on the drive in speaker. I rate Bar-B-Q in two categories: commercial and competition grade. Commercial is run by restaurant people, Competition grade is run by people who used to square off in Bar-B-Q competitions. To me, competition grade is true Kansas City Bar BQ.
The Filling Station packs a wallop with it’s outstanding menu choices and perfect summer time environment. Try it out when the Royals are playing. You’ll have a fantastic evening.
