This was a good place, but although their web site is still up, it closed a few months ago. If you call them, you will find that the phone is out of service.

The food is ok. Not the greatest bbq in town, but if you're already in the area it's a good place to eat.

Food is ok. Not the best. We went once. And haven't been back and probably won't. Considering there is way better places for BBQ in Kansas City.

Great food and an interesting atmosphere. A mix of sports and choppers makes every man feel even more manly. The BBQ was great. However, I would recommend a later afternoon meal as opposed to a early meal as it seems the food isn't smoked as much early on.

How sad is it when the best things about a BBQ joint are the fries and the service? The pulled pork was some of the worst I've ever had in my career as a certified BBQ judge. It was overcooked, mushy, tasteless yet it had an off-taste, and to top it off, spartan in abundance. The fries were hot...too hot,... More

We wandered into this restaurant because of the wonderful smell of BBQ coming from there. We literally followed sre noses on this one. I was glad we did. The place is really cool if you like motorcycles. They are everywhere. We liked the vintage ones on display. The service here is amazing. The number of personnel seemed overkill...but they were...

We got a to go order and took back to our hotel. The main thing we ordered was the Fatboy sandwich. It was HUGE and VERY good!! This is enough for at least 2 people, maybe 3. We also ordered the baked beans and potato salad. The potato salad was average, but the baked beans were very good. I also... More

They have some of the best ribs here that we've ever had at a restaurant, and that's saying a lot since this is in Kansas City. Always enjoy good, friendly service here, and have even been accommodated on the patio with our small dog!
