Hays – Coffee Rules
2/22/2012 UPDATE: Coffee Rules has closed.
|Just look for this place.|
After a late season pheasant hunting trip, fellow blogger Mike and I decided to try and find a good western Kansas BBQ restaurant. We found a coffee house instead. I know what you are probably thinking, (“a coffee house, have you gone crazy?”) But this wasn’t just any ol’ coffee house. This place ruled…just like the name says: Coffee Rules.
|With this sign.|
Located near the campus of Ft. Hays State University, Coffee Rules is no ordinary coffee house. Sure, you can get all the lattes and espressos you want…just like at any other coffee house, but you can also get wine, premium beers, and barbeque. That’s right, this place sells barbecue. Terry’s Backyard Barbeque, to be exact.
|It’s got food like this.|
This stuff may not be exactly like your traditional Kansas City style barbeque but then again, Terry doesn’t claim that it is. In fact, the sign on the bright blue smoker claims that Terry serves his food “German Brewed and Barbequed.” German style barbeque is common in areas east of Austin, Texas where the Texan’s of German ancestry have specialized in sausage, rather than ribs.
|And really cool things like this. Note: Mike is completely overwhelmed with joy.|
In my opinion, Terry Kinderknecht has got great barbequed sausage right here in Kansas, which I find to be somewhat of a rarity in most traditional Kansas City Style barbecue establishments. My hot links tasted kind of like a smoked polish sausage….only better. I would certain recommend a visit to Coffee Rules for some cowboy coffee or some German brew and barbeque!
