*This is a review for the new location on 119th in Overland Park. Formerly Oklahoma Joe’s, the original location started in a gas station in KC, Kansas. This is the 3rd location. The food was great, we each had something a bit different. I had pork sandwich with coleslaw – awesome! My husband had the 2 meat ham/brisket sandwich (he... More

Fantastic menu - always delicious food and a great atmosphere. Fall off the bone ribs and piled high sandwiches.

We have eaten at the original Oklahoma Joe's restaurant which is delicious. We didn't have the time to travel or wait but wanted that amazing BBQ. Our son recommended this place. It was so good. Perfect for a large party. The lines move quickly and there is ample seating. My husband ordered a rack of ribs since they were on... More

If you like BBQ, do yourself a favor and visit one of the best. Kansas City is known for Arthur Bryant's and Gates - this one is a newcomer and measures up to the all-time greats. Cannot recommend it more highly, this will be one of the best meals you've ever had.

Food, staff and atmosphere are great! Just be aware that they get very busy and you may have to wait...but the line moves at a steady pace.

The Ribs are meaty, tender and flavorful, the portions are large and the sauce is great. We live in Florida now and not a lot of good BBQ anywhere; whenever we get back to KC we travel around KCKS hitting all our favorite BBQ places. If you haven't tried Joe's KC BBQ (Formally Oklahoma Joe's) you must make a point... More

Conveniently located across the street from Hampton Inn, Olathe. PROS: - good food - fast service (Hint: if you're in a hurry, head straight to takeout line. Our whole group -12 separate orders- got their food in about 10-15 minutes after ordering when the line for sit down dining was out the door) - reasonably priced CONS: - make sure... More

Hit this place up on the way through Kansas, man what a great place to grab some great grub. Had the burnt ends and could be more pleased. This is how BBQ is done!

Stood in line for an hour for Saturday lunch - being from Texas just had to try some KC BBQ. The ribs were delicious and the pulled pork was really good - just a tad over shredded - I preferred the bigger chunks. The brisket was so thinly sliced - really different from the thick slices we are used too.... More
