Kansas City has been serving up legendary barbecue for more than a century, but Jones Bar-B-Q is taking the city’s smoked meat obsession to a new level. The restaurant just added a barbecue vending machine so that hungry customers can enjoy a brisket sandwich or burnt ends even when the counter isn’t open.
Jones Bar-B-Q, which was notably featured on a episode of Queer Eye, is owned by sibling duo Deborah “Little” Jones and her sister Mary “Shorty” Jones Mosley. Typically, their restaurant is only open for lunch, which means the spot is notorious for big crowds and long wait times. The pair usually runs out of barbecue in just a few hours. A recent addition changes things entirely: a barbecue vending machine.
