Located in the old bank in Hillsdale Kansas. It also has a old train car attached that you can sit in. The food is good but the portions are pretty small for the price. The hand breaded mushrooms are worth the trip alone.

This Bar-B-Q in in the old bank building and has a railroad car attached to it for seating. Its a very small place but worth going for the food. It's kind of hidden but worth a trip to see the place. They are not open all the time so checkout if they are open before going.

Hillsdale Bank Bar-B-Q located in Hillsdale Kansas (population 229) and is about 25 south of Overland Park. Although they are only open F-S-S, the BBQ and the service is excellent...offered in an old, turn of the century bank building. Great place to take the family or carryout...it is unique and I'm sure you will be pleasantly surprised. Hillsdale Bar-B-Q's sauce... More

first, it is in hillsdale, not Paola. So good, nothing bad to say. Eat anything, it's good. Take a walk out back too, so pretty.

This is an interesting place with the old bank vault now pressed into service as restrooms. Lots of neat artifacts to look at and the caboose converted to a dining car is neat too. The food is consistently good; the place is clean, the service is quick and the folks are friendly. We'd recommend you visit them.

This is our favorite BBQ even over Jack Stack and Hayward's. It is in an old historic bank building. The restrooms are where the vault used to be I think. They also have a train car on the side of the building and the kids like to eat in that part. In good weather, you can walk around in back... More

If you've been at the lake, it's a must to stop in at this historic bank building for great BBQ on homemade bread and sides. Large selection of beer and beverages. Check out the train caboose for dining as well. Worth the drive but only open weekends.

When people think of Kansas City, the first thing that comes to mind for many is Bar-B-Q. Visitors flock to the big name places, most of those places in my opinion are just okay. They rely a lot on tourism in some cases and just arm't really that outstanding. Sure, if you are from New Jersey they are great! But... More

Out of the way, but a wonderful addition to the Hillsdale Lake area. They need more space, so added a real cabose for extra room. The BBQ aroma will make you hungry. ONLY OPEN WEEKENDS. The main dining room is actually the old bank lobby. They must have raided lots of cutsie antique stores to decorate the place.
