Backfire BBQ featuring Orange County Choppers

http://www.kansascity.com/business/story/1616762.html

New barbecue restaurant combines meals with motorcycles

By JOYCE SMITH

The Kansas City Star



Backfire BBQ creator Steve Schussler said the new restaurant had “some of the most unusual decor that you will see in Kansas City.”



BBQ and Motorcycles seems like a natural fit.
Expect to see one in your town soon. :)


Interesting too, that right below that story is a blurb announcing the demise of Roadfood icon Leona Yarbourgh's, where I had dined since I was a tyke.
 

A Yarbrough farewell
After more than four decades in business, Leona Yarbrough’s Family Restaurant will soon shut down in Shawnee.
The restaurant at 10310 Shawnee Mission Parkway plans to close at 8 p.m. Dec. 30. It has 28 employees.
“We’ve done everything we could. We tried opening on Monday, opening for breakfast, but the economy absolutely killed us,” said Mike Yarbrough, president and grandson of the founder. “I’ve known my customers my whole life, and they are fit to be tied. But I wouldn’t close unless I had to. It’s been an emotional week.”
The road goes ever onward.

    The one blurb that caught my eye in the original article is the mention of ribs that "fall off the bone".  Is that a trait of typical KC ribs?  Personally I like them firm and either dry or with a tangy/savory sauce, so maybe KC barbecue isn't for me...

    I think it is perfectly appropriate coming from the same guy who seems proud of the sentence “We spent a whole year testing food in their laboratories."  "Their," in this case, refers to a Chicago restaurant corporation  - and was said by the guy who helped develop other "theme" restaurants like Rainforest Cafe.  Equating this place to "Kansas City BBQ" would be akin to calling Domino's "New York-style pizza."

    Yeah, I wasn't excited about this as much as somewhat sad.
