Kansas City Barbeque
Kansas City Barbeque is a restaurant and bar located in the heart of bustling Harbor Drive. Located across Harbor Drive from Seaport Village and just down the street from USS Midway. They have become infamous for their on-site slow smoked bbq giving it a one-of-a-kind flavor. Revered by aficionados for their special sauces, rubs and “burnt ends” of briskets known for their flavor!
You shake my nerves and you rattle my brains…....
They also have more license plates hanging on their walls and ceilings than we’ve ever seen before. Oh……and the piano that Maverick and Goose played on in the movie is sitting in a corner of the dining room.
A little fun history…
“The location director for Paramount Studios was driving through downtown San Diego in search of locations during the filming of “Top Gun” at Miramar NAS. After stopping in for a beer, he liked the joint and brought back the director, Tony Scott, who approached us about the possibility of closing down for a day to do some shooting. In retrospect, it was one of our better business decisions.” Quote by owner Martin Blair.
Visit the bar and take home a “Top Gun” tank top, t-shirt, hat or postcard! Their menu boasts a variety of great sandwiches, ribs, pulled pork, chicken, and more! ”
