The burnt ends are actually meat, the beef and ribs are excellent. The sauce is a perfect fit for the style of smoke. Oden's is in a nice little family atmosphere and it has to be the most underrated venue in Kansas City.

Service was a little slow, BBQ average, nothing spectacular in my opinion. I actually was disappointed because of a few good remarks I had heard about it from other people.

Found this place driving down the HWY and WOW! Had a half slab of ribs. Out of this world. The meat stuffed potato was also incredible. To top it off free ice cream. Will be back as travels allow. Thanks.

The service was great! Our hostess & waitress were both very friendly and quick to get refills. The brisket & burnt ends (rib tips with caramelized barbecue sauce) were delicious, especially when covered in extra sauce (mix the normal & hot for a good balance). The ribs on the other hand were nothing special - they were fairly meaty, but... More

In pulling up to this restaurant you probably wouldn't think much of it as it's a very small place that looks almost like a converted house. However, the way they have built and decorated the inside gives it a great homey feel. The staff is very welcoming and the food is delicious!! The kids love visiting because they even get... More
