Northwest Kansas is one of the best places to get mild or spicy BBQ, a Mexican meal or bar food. Throughout the Northwest region of the state, there are unique barbecue chefs and pit masters who follow different recipes while preparing smoky, saucy lunch and dinner items. These recipes feature steak, pork, chicken and seafood, and each of these meats is cooked slowly on a grill or over special wood chips. Spice rubs are always used to make the barbecue and provide a mild or spicy kick. Bold spices are also found in the Mexican food in Northwest Kansas, and you can sample the flavor by ordering a taco. Enjoy a taco at a bar alongside local craft beers and microbrews.
