The barbecue here is amazing. The meat is not overly fatty like some of the places in KC. It is where we go for all our party planning as they make up great catering trays on short notice. And the fried cauliflower adds just the right finishing touch.

For me personally, this is my favorite BBQ joint in Kansas City. I love spicy food and their hot BBQ sauce is so good that I almost want to drink it! I have been going here for about 20 years and I always get the sausage sandwich. The ribs and burnt ends will leave you satisfied for hours. This food... More

Soooooo....I was doing a lil traveling and thought we'd stop for some KC bbq. We've learned to avoid places featured on Food Network or Travel Channel as they have NEVER worked out well for us. This place has a couple of locations in the KC area I believe and there was plenty of space in the building and not much... More

Real deal BBQ. Could smell the smoker as we pulled into the parking lot. Friendly, knowledgable staff. Burnt ends were awesome. Smoked turkey was moist with great smoke flavor. Wish they didn't sauce the heck out of it though, Ribs were't baby backs but a true spare rib. A little more work for the customer, but a lot more meat.... More

About average food for BBQ places. There is stiff competition for BBQ in Kansas City and this place just doesn't stand out as some of the other great BBQ places. The inside needs a huge update it is dark and looks old. The service needs help as it is a bunch teenagers that seemed to be more interested in chatting... More

Family informal dinning with a country western flair. Come early and bring the whole family. For the ladies ask for the 2 rib plate. It's a large amount with 2 ribs and a side. Just delish!! May not be the biggest name in KC but it has the best BBQ.

The side dishes had an old world flair. The meat was extremely flavorful and tender. Nice atmosphere. It must be a local favorite because it was packed. Bring an extra $20 and pick up a t shirt. .
