10. Full Rack of Ribs - Double S BBQ

Double S knows how to BBQ, and their Full Rack of Ribs proves it. These ribs are slow cooked to absolute perfection, and served with a pickle. You’ll be happy there’s a roll of paper towel on each table, because chances are you’ll get a little saucy while chowing down. 🍖

9. Supreme Nachos - The Brass Ring

Tortilla chips topped with shredded pepperjack and cheddar cheese, diced tomatoes and red onions, and black olives. Served with a side of sour cream and our house made salsa. Jalapenos served on side if requested.

There’s no question why these nachos are dubbed supreme. The Brass Ring melts, not one, but TWO types of cheese onto these crispy tortilla chips - pepper jack and cheddar. These nachos also don the more traditional toppings, like diced tomato, black olives and red onions. You also have the option to add jalapenos (which we recommend)!

8. Kansas City Ribs - North and South Seafood & Smokehouse

Full rack of pork ribs from our smokehouse (half-rack available), served with your choice of two sides, including seasoned skin-on fries, BBQ brisket beans, seasoned vegetables, coleslaw, mashed potatoes, mac 'n cheese, wild rice, and potato cakes. (Sweet potato fries add $1.)

North and South Seafood & Smokehouse - a recent addition to the hankr family - is making their presence known! We’re certainly not surprised this mouthwateringly beautiful rack of ribs made it onto our top ten-10. They’re smokey, tender and everything we look for in a rack of ribs.

7. Crustless Quiche - Barriques

6. Corned Beef Hash - Black Locust Cafe

It’s not hard to understand why Jac's cheese curds took October’s top spot. They’re crispy, gooey and everything we look for in a good cheese curd. You can dunk these little bites of heaven in the traditional ranch dipping sauce or try their sauce trio!
