Little Jakes seems to also be known as Danny Edwards', as well, but whatever it's called, it is without a doubt a sensational lunch experience. Only open for lunches, they offer a daily "hardhat special," presumably aimed at construction workers, busy with the new Arena and H&R Block headquarters, in an effort to curry favor with them, as this great barbecue joint has come under the development knife, what with all the changes coming downtown.
The rib "sandwich" is a sandwich, in that it comes with bread, but it's really just a delicious excuse to eat mouth-watering slow-cooked Kansas City-style ribs.
The staff is attentive enough to get you in and out in no more than twenty minutes, hence the name, "eat it & beat it."
This is an essential piece of KC's barbecue heritage puzzle.
