Friends raved about this but I thought it was just average BBQ. The atmosphere was really cool but typical.

This is not the best BBQ I've had but it's not the worst either. I think it's a bit overrated. We had the full slab rib dinner and the brisket dinner. I would say that the brisket was good but it is sliced paper thin which detracts from the taste a bit. The ribs are spareribs and were not fall... More

The brisket is good every time I've been and the ribs are up there with anybody's. But the sauce is where it is at for me!

We enjoyed a meaty and flavorful BBQ beef sandwich with fries and a choice of sauces that really excited our pallets. The meat portion was generous and the prices very reasonable for the amount and quality of food. Their cole slaw is unique and definitely something to try.

I have always enjoyed their food their pulled pork and brisket. I just wish their prices were more in line with a few of the other barbecue places in town.

It was OK but overpriced and there are better places to eat BBQ in the Kansas City area. The sauce was bland compared to most and the slaw was too. I know alot of people love this restaurant so I guess it's a good thing there are alot to choose from in the area.

Oklahoma Joes has very good BBQ! My husband loves the Carolina BBQ sandwich. It comes with Cole slaw on top of pulled pork. My favorite sandwich is the Zman. BBQ beans are excellent as well aas their specially seasoned fries that you get plenty of. Very casual atmosphere. Stand in line and order. Seating is picnic tables as well as... More

This is where you come for bbq when visiting KC. Yes it's outside of town. Yes it's in a gas station. Yes the line will be wrapped around the store, sometimes twice. You got a better chance of getting on a ride a Disney faster than you do getting a sandwich here but it's totally worth it.

I was born and raised in KC and this is the best BBQ that has ever entered my oral cavity! I honestly can no longer stomach other local BBQ establishments due to the superior taste of OK Joes! BBQ consistently at its finest!
