Fire guts popular restaurant

June 27, 2008|Tony Perry

A kitchen fire Thursday spread quickly and gutted the Kansas City Barbecue restaurant, a local landmark known for its sign celebrating it as the site of the "sleazy bar scene" from the Tom Cruise movie "Top Gun."

More than 40 firefighters fought the blaze, which caused an estimated $400,000 damage, not including the movie memorabilia. The restaurant, across from Seaport Village and near the city's waterfront convention center, is a tourist attraction.
