Ignore the line - it will be long. It moves quickly. The BBQ here is the best I've ever had in my many decades of eating. I won't go into descriptions of the food it is just great.

Don't kid yourself. This place is the real deal. Skip the platters and get the Z Man, Hog Heaven, or Pulled Pork sandwich. And of course a side of fries big enough for 2.

We stopped here for lunch on a Saturday. The line was out the door and around the side of the building. Oklahoma Joe's was worth the wait in line. The service was great and they really have a fluid system for getting people in and out comfortably. The food was a great value and I'm still stuffed hours later on... More

In town for work and we have hit what was described as the best BBQ that you will ever eat! The location is cool and what you expect from a great BBQ joint. The wait (1 hour 45 minutes) was long compared to what I am used to. Once inside the atmosphere added to the mystic the restaurant was packed... More

You can't go wrong with this BBQ joint. Everything you get is fresh and tasty. Better get there early, though. There's always a line out the door. The lines move pretty fast and we always get a table, though.

Very good atmosphere, great BBQ at an even better prices. You need to try the ribs and the roasted chicken gumbo. We will be back for more.

Nothing fancy. You stand in line to order and it moves quickly. I would probably stand in that line for 24 hours for the best BBQ around and for the price! Super cheap and super tasty! Must try! I recommend the pulled pork!

Anytime we're in KC we try to hit Oklahoma Joe's...for lunch, for supper, for supper again. The brisket is top notch along with pretty much everything else. Our family loves good BBQ and this spot is pretty much the top of the heap. The restaurant gets very busy around lunch and prior to supper so be prepared to wait in... More

Great barbeque! Some of the best I have ever eaten. The line is long every night but moves quickly. You line up and order, get your food and then sit down. The prices are very reasonable. Make this a must do on any trip to Olathe.
