This is known as the best BBQ in KC, and one of the best restaurants in the country. Don't let the line throw you off; it moves pretty quickly.

My buddy and I drove 700 miles from Michigan to eat at Oklahoma Joe's, we were not disappointed. I had the burnt ends and was blown away!! The meat melted in my mouth!! I've had the best cole slaw this mouth has ever tasted here (sorry mom). Don't let the fact that this is connected to a gas station scare... More

There always seems to be a line to get into Oklahoma Joe's. We went about an hour before they closed so I think we were lucky they we didn't have to wait too long to eat. We are going to go to the one in KC the next day but that line was a block long....

Best I ever had. Great ribs. Must have burnt ends. Good local beer to boot. The line is worth it. Trust.

Went here tonight with a bunch of guys from work. We picked up 2 racks of ribs, pulled pork, brisket, fries and some onion rings. Plenty of food for 7 of us! Now don't go here expecting the full dining experience, you queue up yourself and take the food to your own table, but the food is so tasty and... More

Although the line is mentoned in many of the reviews, and it does often snake out the door and along the buiding, it moves fast. Their ordering system and food production is second to none. We have tried most of the famous Kansas City BBQ restaurants, and we keep coming back to Oklahoma Joes. The sauce makes the food taste... More

Kansas City has so many terrific BBQ options but this one is the best! Beware - because of this fact, you will very regularly stand in line. But if you have time, it's worth it. Try the brisket!

I was a little unsure about waiting in line to eat lunch but it was worth it. Incredible BBQ! I will be back.
