Reds True Barbecue - Leeds Second and Last Visit
This past Friday night, Dan asked me what I wanted for dinner and I said BBQ. Being from Kansas City, you really start to miss certain things, like good BBQ, Mexican and Chinese. We had been to Red's True Barbecue-Leeds for lunch once before and it seemed about as close to KC as we could get. We sat down and ordered beers and perused the large menu. We both decided on combo plates that had St. Louis style ribs. After taking our orders the server returned to tell us that they were out of ribs!! This was at 7PM on a Friday night, no less. We told her we would look at the menus again, so she gave us a few minutes. I decided on the pulled pork sandwich and Dan ordered the chicken. So sorry, but we are out of chicken too!! We told her to bring us the check for the beers and we would dine elsewhere. She apologized and I told her not to worry, it was not her fault. The fault her lies with the owner, the management and the kitchen. You cannot call yourself a BBQ restaurant and not be prepared for Friday crowds. It all turned out great, we just walked around the corner and tried The Cattle Grid.
