New barbecue restaurant combines meals with motorcycles

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.
