Very good. One of the best in the Midwest KS I-35 exit 198

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

We were driving towards Kansas City in I-35 looking for a place for dinner. I read the reviews about this place and drive right to it! 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.

I went and ordered BBQ and sweet potato fries instead of eating food served by auction vendor. Glad I did. Will definitely be back. great food and friendly staff.

BBQ places are everywhere in Kansas City and the surrounding communities so finding good BBQ isn't hard but Smokey's is better than most. Good portion sizes, priced right, small town friendly service. I love their burnt ends and the wife gobbles up their ribs. Right off of I-35 and it is well worth the stop if you are driving by.

The food is great and most of the time the service is, too! The people are generous and the for the price you're paying, you are really getting a great value! Great taste (even if you are definitely not sparing the calories or grease) for a low price!
