Kansas City River Market Real Estate Bubble Blows Up More Longtime Biz

The streetcar chases away more biz as landlords believe the hype and want higher rents for horrible weekend guests. Take a look:

Winslow's BBQ Closing Its Doors Next Month After 46 Years In The River Market

Winslow's BBQ, a City Market institution that traces its roots to the "roaring" River Quay days in 1971, is going out of business next month. The barbecue joint and its 300-seat outdoor patio overlooking the City Market vendors has been a familiar fixture for generations, but that will all end Oct.

A new restaurant is taking its place,
called Confederate Fried Chicken.

Dickeys is another BBQ restaurant that has a few opened up that I can't see why people eat there.

I gave the place maybe 10 different chances to get better. But every time its like, this place still sucks, so don't eat there also.

The chicken wings were really good when Winslow owned it. They really were the pioneers of the Market. Everything changes. Nothing good can stay.

Winslow's was the shittiest example of a BBQ restaurant in KC. They sucked up to the artsy fartsy crown and did a good job of promoting themselves, but the basic product and service was certified shit.
