Johnny's BBQ is probably some of the best tasting BBQ I've ever had. It's on the list with Jack Stack and Gates. The service is great and the staff is always super friendly. Get the potato salad and baked beans as your sides. In addition to the good food, the prices are reasonable. Can't wait to visit Johnny's again.

I had read some good reviews for Johnny's BBQ but it didn't live up to the hype for me. This was my first Triple D let down. It's not that it's that it was bad just that I have had better in KC and elsewhere. I ordered the burnt ends, because KC Burnt Ends are my favorite. I got the... More

This place is locally owned. The owner, Johnny, met us at the door and even sat us at our table. You can tell his touch is everywhere throughout his restaurant. He was super friendly and welcoming. His BBQ and sides were fantastic. The prices were very reasonable and the portions were large. You won't walk away hungry.

Ate here for lunch while doing some work in the area. Didn't know anything about it and needed to have some KC BBQ while in town so I thought I would give it a try. I had the lunch special which was a beef brisket sandwich, fries, beans and a drink. I wasn't really expecting much so it really hit... More

I tried the combo plate of pork, ribs, sausage and brisket. Overall very nice smoked taste. The most bland was the pork. I expected a bit more from that but overall the complete plate satisfied. Prices were decent and you certainly get a decent amount of food.

Couldn't find a suitable BBQ restaurant around Kansas City until I found this on my travels. Food was okay, but I think the short stack ribs could have been a little better. Staff was nice.

We've gone to Johnny's a lot. The food is consistent. LOVE the onion rings. Service Not so consistent. Last night we went. The place wasn't even 50% full. Our waitress was less than attentive (the younger waitress really was attentive to her guests). My water was almost empty when our server brought our food. She NEVER came back to ask... More

I was so excited to taste the food that Guy reviewed on. Boy was I so disappointed. I don't understand how they are still open for business. First off, the waitress was rude. The place, dirty, dusty. But most importantly the food was either frozen, or cam straight out of the can or jar! Nothing tasted homemade. Overall this is... More

We sought out Johnny's BBQ on the recommendation of a family member who used to work nearby. We both ordered the brisket with beans and cold slaw, Since I didn't want the fries that came with the menu item, our server suggested a double portion of either the cold slaw or the beans. I ordered the double portion of beans... More

When we want consistently good BBQ, we go to Johnnys. Food is always good, staff is friendly and helpful. The location in Mission is decorated casually so it has a down home feeling. Great place for a saturday lunch as well as date night.
