Kansas City Barbeque is a restaurant and bar located in the harbor district of San Diego, California. Self-proclaimed as the “Top Gun Bar”, it is known for being the filming location for scenes used in the film Top Gun.
Opened 40 years ago by Kansas City natives Martin and Cindy Blair Kansas City Barbeque was one of the first restaurants to usher in the downtown dining re-vitalization of San Diego which is known today as the premier destination for all things travels and business related. The location of the restaurant was key for Martin and Cindy because in the coming years downtown would soon construct its famous Convention Center and a multitude of hotels all surrounding the barbeque. However, Kansas City Barbeque is most famous for a 1986 classic movie.
