Re: Oklahoma Joe's Changing Name
Not necessarily. The Kansas City population has great civic pride. Walk around town on a Friday before a Chiefs game and the entire town is dressed in red, white, and yellow. "Joe's Kansas City BBQ" sounds like an appeal to local vanity that may be just what's called for.
On the other hand, they've enjoyed critical acclaim (not mine) and long lines (just twice for me; both times a "meh" experience) at both locations since the day they opened. What they hope to gain from a strictly business standpoint escapes me.
