the line is always long, but moves quickly. Everything on the menu is excellent. The fallback is the rib dinner, but have had everything in the menu. The rub is a nice combo of sweet and slightly spicy. The sauce is a great compliment to the meats, but the meat is so well prepared you really have no need for... More

We just celebrated a birthday with 70 family members and friends, including children as young as age 2. The private party room "Room 180) is perfect for a Western theme party. The round tables are very accommodating for visiting with others at the table. We designated one table for kids (ages 4 to 10) and they had a blast. The... More

WOW! I thought I knew good BBQ - I was wrong. This brisket is amazing. The line wasn't long when we arrived, but it soon grew - out the door! I had the Z man sandwich based on a recommendation and it was amazing! The food is prepared quickly and the service is great! FYI... it's in a gas station!

We ordered the burnt ends and the pulled pork sandwich-delicious! The BBQ sauce is amazing!! It is a delicate balance of sweet, spicy & savory! Highly recommend!!! Less than $10 per person.

I stopped by this restaurant on the way to the airport and realized that I ended up in a place that Zagat rated #1 BBQ in Kansas City from 2004-2013. There was a quite long line at lunch time, but it was worth of waiting, and they served pretty fast without loosing quality. You definitely want to try their pulled... More

I ordered the burnt ends for the first time, but they were much too fatty for my taste. I love brisket, but I want to eat meat not fat! The sides were excellent (I had the red beans and rice and the dirty rice). Service was very fast and staff was friendly. My wife had the brisket sandwich and it... More

The lines can be long, but the reward is worth the wait. My wife and I tried both the beef and pork sandwiches - cut in half so we could share. The quality and taste was superior. Our slight preference was for the pork. Big praise for the smokey sauce and friendly service. We will absolutely return and highly recommend... More

We often enjoy this good BBQ but we had a friend with us and she mentioned how the ribs were meaty, tender and fat free. Beans with black beans added are delicious too! A recent updated separate take out area is a great addition welcome addition! Can't wait to go again!

They have the best pulled pork sandwich in the area. The fries are big enough for 2. They have a good selection of beers and drinks. Just expect a wait of 20-30minutes during the lunch and dinner periods!

We live here in KC and Oklahoma Joes is our favorite. The atmosphere is very laid back. You order at the counter and then find your own table. The BBQ meats have just the right amount of smokey flavor and you have two sauces to choose from, original and very hot. TIPS: The lines to get in can be long.... More
