Best BBQ I've ever had, still

I grew up and lived in Wellsville until I was 10 and every Sunday after church we'd have lunch there. Best bbq I've had even to this day.

The BBQ is great. The owner only uses lean cuts of beef and other meats. The sauce is good. If your a BBQ fan don't pass this one up. It's located just off I-35 about 20 minutes SW of KC at exit 198. It's worth the stop.

Good value for BBQ near KC. Kids meals are very reasonable, and include one type of meat, one side, drink, and Oreo pkg. I love the smokeys salad, the BBQ ranch dressing is awesome! Husband got the 3 meat platter, burnt ends were a little dry but the corned beef was really good. Apple corn bread, frickles and beans are... More

I have never had fried pickles and would never have tried them if not for speaking with the owner, Rene. They are so light and addictive! I had the burnt ends (perfect) and my... More

You must stop here on your way down I-35 and have some of the best BBQ you'll ever try. They have a full menu, not just BBQ, but it would be a shame to pass up the deliciousness. If you have a large group, get the Family Meal. It includes portions of their different BBQ meats, sauces, and sides. Service... More

Well worth the stop off I-35 exit 198, great food and a fantastic small town value! Tip: try the 2 meat combo which comes with 2 sides. We didn't have room for desert, - 4 rugby players.....you figure it out.
