Good BBQ but not my favorite

Look, there are a several very good BBQ placed in the greater KC area and in my opinion, each has its merits. Trying to pick one with the best of everything is simply impossible.

Some of the best pulled pork and ribs I've ever had. Did not think the brisket was up to the same level,as the ribs and pork. The fries are awesome as well. Great atmosphere and well worth the short wait in line.

The pulled pork was great, extremely tasty. I was not partial to the ribs, but others liked them. The small eating area makes it a bit difficult to eat with larger groups.

I found the pulled pork and ribs to be very good. However, I expected better being in one of the elite barbecue capitals of the nation. The pork was tender and moist. I would have like a little more smoke. The ribs were probably the best I have had. My wife enjoyed the moist, lightly smoked chicken and had no... More

Reading all the reviews, I had high expectations. We dreaded waiting in line, but it really moved fast. We ordered a Z-Man sandwich, which was excellent, and a full rack of ribs. Despite all the reviews of fall-off-the-bones ribs, ours were tough and flavorless. I was so disappointed! The sides (coleslaw and red beans and rice) were also disappointing. But... More

Omg!! I am KC girl born and raised - but the BBQ tonight was the best of my LIFE!!! My Nebraska-born hubby rated it a 6 on our 5 point scale so he was equally as pleased. We had the two featured specials which were basically a 3-meat combo platter and - omg - so so so good!! I had... More

This was my first visit to Oklahoma Joe's. It was the best BBQ I have eaten. I had a combination of ribs, brisket and sausage. All were perfectly prepared. We arrived a little before the busiest time and avoided the long line and wait time. The next time we'll probably call ahead for carry out. Looking forward to my next... More

Good meats, kid friendly, decent prices. You stand in line (that was out the door anytime I happened to be driving by). It's worth the time. It went quickly. Took a bunch of high-schoolers here. Had good feedback on Z-man sandwich and the fries. I had brisket burnt end which were tender and very flavorful - great smokiness. I absolutely... More

Great Bar-B-Que!! The original started in a gas station, however this location is not. The food is awesome, a must try is the "Z" man sandwich - you will not be disappointed and an order of fries is certainly big enough to share! They are also known for their ribs which are extremely mouth watering. Burnt ends are only available... More

Really good, consistent barbecue and a varied menu - hard to beat for what's essentially a 'fast-food' service restaurant. (though you might stand in line for a long time if you hit the rush-hour dinner and lunch lines) Try the ribs or pulled pork - you won't be sorry.
