If you're going to stop, I recommend eating at the restaurant. The interior has an interesting vibe to it. The experience of ordering can be somewhat intense, so I highly recommend checking out their menu online before showing up.

Struttin-Man, Gates BBQ

The iconic statue at the Emanuel Cleaver Boulevard location is named "Struttin-Man" according to the Gates website. It seems as though he's in a natural position for the starting kickoff.
