Food was awesome, the brisket was wonderful, the pulled pork was great. When you get to this place, there will most likely be a line and long wait, but don't walk away, order anything you want from the 'to go' desk and take it with you, it takes about 5-8 minutes to get your food, you won't be disappointed!

The full slap ribs were pretty good, but too too salty. You NEED to get a diet soda to dilute all that sodium >.< I prefer Fiorella's Jack Stack BBQ.

This place is overrated on yelp and there is much better BBQ elsewhere in KC. If you are in the mood for some fabulous ribs KC style then I'd recommend Johnny's BBQ in south Olathe. Oklahoma Joe's is over priced and just not as tasty. The food is not fresh out of the smoker most times and is usually reheated.

Any time I tell someone I am going to Kansas City and they are from there they always recommend Oklahoma Joes. First, I have had a lot of BBQ as we do many road trips in the Midwest and south. I had to stand in line an hour for sub par bbq. I had a variety of items as did... More

I really enjoyed my lunch here and when I mentioned it to the locals they all indicated that Oklahoma Joes is a reliable place for good bbq. I will go back again. Also this is a bbq that you can bring a vegetarian friend along as they offer. Delicious looking Portobello sandwich.

Oklahoma Joe's gets many accolades both locally and nationally, most of them are legitimate. The Olathe location can definitely be over crowded, your best bet is to avoid weekends and peak hours. The meat is always well cooked and seasoned with a sauce that is very good. I have never had any issue with the quality or service here. That... More

Best BBQ I have ever had. Worth the long wait in line, happened to be a Saturday night, which added to the number of people waiting. Ribs were excellent as was the pulled pork and brisket. BBQ sauce was very good, little tangy for my wifes taste. A lot of food for the money. Could have shared some meals, fries... More

Forget the other big bbq placed known in Kansas city. This is the best in the area and my favorite anywhere. Every time I go to kc I have to stop here. Even if you are here before opening you are likely going to wait in line. Don't be discouraged they have it down to an art. My favorite is... More

Being a Barbecue snob and having grown up on Memphis style barbecue I couldn't wait to see what all the fuss was about Kansas City burnt ends. Planned my trip so I could go to Oklahoma Joes to eat. Got there at 2pm and the line outside was 20 deep. The line moves fast and I was glad I waited.... More

Went for lunch today with my daughter. It was set up walk up style to order. Completely non formal and quick. We ordered a pulled pork on a bun and shared the fries. We used the original BBQ sauce and it was nothing than "Oh my!"
