Mattie's Foods Brisket

On first look, the brisket sandwich from Mattie's Foods looks like any other barbecue sandwich.

When you think of Kansas City, one of the first things that come to mind is barbecue. It is a beloved staple of the city's culinary culture, and it revolves around one thing: meat. But, thanks to spots like Mattie's Foods, Kansas Citians who have removed meat from their diet can still get some of those great barbecue flavors out of plant-based protein. 

On first look, the brisket sandwich from Mattie's Foods looks like any other barbecue sandwich. On closer inspection, though, you'll find that beef is swapped out for sliced tofu marinated in barbecue sauce. And a true barbecue meal wouldn't be complete without a couple of sides. Add vegan-friendly versions of mac 'n' cheese, baked beans, greens or cornbread to get the full experience. 

Mattie's Foods is offering its menu for carryout and delivery.
