111 Southwest Blvd., Kansas City, Kansas
HOURS: Mon.–Fri. 9 a.m.–4:30 p.m., Sat. 10 a.m.–3 p.m.
Sure, you thought Kansas City was the Midwest’s barbecue capital. And it is—but after a visit to Original Juan, Purveyors of Specialty Foods, you’ll realize a completely different side of the city’s cuisine. Flavor-soaked salsas made in micro-batches—and at a variety of heat levels—are Original Juan’s specialty.
For the faint of heart, try Original Juan’s mild salsa. If you’re feeling especially adventurous (or maybe a little crazy) try anything from the Off the Chart category, including Da’ Bomb The Final Answer Hot Sauce.
Just do your traveling companions a favor and have some milk standing by.
