We have heard about this place for a long time, so made a weekend trip to Kansas to give it a try. We have heard the lines get long, so we arrived at 2:30 pm. We had to wait about 10 minutes in line. There is a window where you can order drinks while you wait in line. I thought... More

We have eaten here on two occasions passing through Kansas City. The wait looks unappealing but trust me it is worth every minute. We are from Texas where BBQ is extremely popular. I would still have to say Oklahoma Joes in KC has the best ever.

Oklahoma Joe's is a great restaurant if you don't mind waiting in line. The line does move quickly, place your order, pay and then look for a table. The ribs are some of my favorites in KC. I don't care for the coleslaw. It is too vinegary for me. Their onion rings are excellent.

This is a great casual place to take the family for BBQ. But get there early, as the lines are long. Especially if you go to the original gas station location. The food is great and the prices are right.

Oklahoma Joe's is now Joe's Kansas City. Same great BBQ. This is not a fancy sit down restaurant, it's a typical BBQ joint. Texas toast, pickles and serve yourself drinks. We go early to avoid the long lines that always forms after 5:30.

There are a lot of good options on the menu, but let me save you some time. If it is offered (only on Mondays, Wednesday, and Saturday) you need to get burnt ends. Without a doubt the most tender and flavorful burnt ends in a city that invented them. If it is not one of those day, or you don't... More
