Had a nice dinner at a very fair price. The service as surprisingly attentive for a serve fast casual setting. We got through the line quickly and the staff bussing the tables was efficient and friendly. The food was really good and the portion size was good for the price. I particularly liked the brisket and the beans. The restaurant... More

I'm a certified BBQ snob from Texas. It takes a lot to make me even come close to recommending a BBQ joint. So I fully expected to be disappointed in Oklahoma Joe's KC BBQ. My wife and I stopped there last Thursday for lunch, and it was so delicious that we went back again the next day! The ribs are... More

We were in KC on vacation. We had previously went to Arthur Bryants and Jack Stacks. We got here the line was soooo long and told it was worth the wait. Waited almost an hour. It was not worth the wait for food. It was kind of cool/odd that it was located in a gas station. Other than that I... More

Great BBQ. I don't think it's the best in KC but great for price. Fast service and in good area. Original one was out of a gas station.

Went here during a trip to KC on the recommendation from a friend. It has been rated one of the best by Zagot. Not sure that it deserves the praise. We waited in a vey long line. The dining area is cramped, crowded and noisy. The overall atmosphere is so-so. I had a pulled pork platter. It was ok, nothing... More

Oklahoma Joe's has received some very impressive reviews. "Best in KC." etc. My impression is that these are overstated. The food is good. The meat quality is excellent. However, the sauce is average, the sides are average, and the atmosphere is cliche. There is much better barbecue in KC. The difference is the restraint itself. Oklahoma Joe's appeals to the... More

great food and has quite a rush for dinner and lunch service. get there early or you'll be waiting in line for awhile. it is worth the wait. burnt ends and z-man sandwich are great. beans are on the spicy side and cole slaw is mild. steak fries and good and crispy but soft on the inside.

Haven't had a meal, favorite is brisket and ribs! Z Man is also favorite. Always busy but rarely have to wait too long!

One of, if not the, best barbecue places in the Kansas City area. Get the Z Man, you won't regret it. One order of fries is enough for two people.
