Great brisket!

My favorite foods here are the beef brisket, ribs and straw onion rings! It does fill up pretty quick, so it is best to go during the off hours. Service is quick and the staff friendly. The down side is that sometimes they have so many bikers or they are having private parties you cannot get a... read more

We had BBQ from Wasbash delivered and everything was great! Pulled pork, turkey, brisket, potato salad and beans - something for everybody. The presentation itself was very good with the turkey and brisket packaged together and lined up. The brisket had very little to no fat whatsoever. The potato salad was good, just like what I make at home. The... More

Wabash is our favorite BBQ place in the Northland. We have been eating there for many years. Everything on the menu is super fantastic.

Had lunch at the Wabash and ordered the ribs And Cole slaw. Our waitress took forever to get to us and then brought the wrong order. She brought the ribs and forgot the sides. The coke slaw, when I finally got it, was below average in the taste factor. The ribs were seasoned to perfection and smoked to mouth watering... More

Let me preface this with the fact that I love trains, history, and BBQ. So naturally, a place that is a combination of all three will be a favorite for me. The food was clean and well prepared. You get a lot for your dollar. The atmosphere is historic and quaint making it a definite on my repeat visit list.... More

Ate here recently and had the BBQ Brisket sandwich which was a little small for $8. It comes w/fries but I tried the potato salad instead. It was unremarkable except for being overly salty. I think it was mixed a little too much which resulted in not being able to identify its contents. It would stick to the spoon if... More

Stopped in to eat dinner one night and was surprised about how good the BBQ was. Staff was very friendly and was attentive. BBQ brisket and pork was great. Would go back again.

This place is in a small town outside Kansas City. It wouldn't be fair to compare them with some of the very famous BBQ joint in the big city, but they do a great job on sliced meats. It is located near the historic Elms Hotel in what used to be a dairy distributor building. Clean but not attractive. Good... More

Nothing exceptional here. Very small place that gets crowded quickly. The kids ribs were extremely fatty, my pork roast was cold, the coleslaw tasted like it was made last week, and the service is just ok. Maybe we just had some bad luck when visiting, but I can't say I'm overly impressed with any of it.
