There are a lot of choices for BBQ in Kansas City and everyone from here has a strong opinion of where to send people from out of town. I think Oklahoma Joe's is the best by far. If someone is looking for the best casual place for really good BBQ in KC then this is where you must go. There... More

I always like the Zman sandwich, a great BBQ sandwich with an onion ring in the middle and the full rack of ribs so you have leftovers. Biggest problem here is sometimes they are really busy... I like to call ahead and place the order so you can walk right in and out, and they have never made a mistake... More

Oklahoma Joes BBQ is the best anywhere! Yummy food!! There is usually a long line indicating awesome food inside. It is worth waiting for! When we have company, we sometimes call ahead to pick it up and take it home with us -- it eliminates that long waiting line. Just pass the line by, move to the front to pick... More

There must have been 50 people in line when we arrived -- line out the door. Nevertheless, the line moved quite quickly. I had the Z-man sandwich (BBQ, provolone, and onion rings on a bun) great. We also ordered a separate order of O-rings which was easily enough to share with 2 people. Plenty of sauces of all types on... More

This BBQ is awesome and it never disappoints - as you can tell by the constant line that winds it's way through the restaurant and out the door. It's worth the wait and the line moves so fast! The staff really work at an incredible speed and still manage to make amazing BBQ.

One of the biggest challenges a BBQ restaurant faces is being consistent. You can go to a place and it is great on that day and go back again the following month and find a mediocre meal. OK Joe's is consistent on every trip and that is one of the hallmarks of good BBQ. I've been around KC doing BBQ... More

Oklahoma Joe's food is delicious...period! It is a casual atmosphere and busy. If you don't care for the full restaurant, you can order take out. It is just as delicious. We love their brisket especially. Remember, they are closed on Sundays.

The BBQ here speaks for itself. This is traditional Kansas City BBQ. If you are looking for a nice fancy BBQ restaurant then keep on driving; because that is not real BBQ. You stand in line; line moves fast, fill your own drink and take your food to your table. Nothing fancy but BBQ shouldn't be fancy!

I love the BBQ at Oklahoma Joe's. The fries are great too and there is enough to share in one serving. I love the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant. Unless you go early, plan to stand in line to get this awesome BBQ.
