My wife and I stayed at the Elms and wanted something different so we tried this place! I have been to BBQ joints all over North America and would rate this as one of my top favorites. We had the wings and they were crunch and mouth watering. We also got the baby back ribs, they fell off the bone... More

Food was great (and I'm not a huge BBQ fan). Server was friendly. Within walking distance to the Elms. Has a restaurant on one side and a bar on the other. Could use a little freshening up, but fun.

What a great find! Awesome ribs! They are fall off the bone tender, just the right amount of smoke and the sauce is DEE-licious! Be sure to get the thin sliced onion strings with ranch dressing. One slab of ribs fed the two of us with a few to spare. We'll definitely be going back for more!

The place to go for BBQ in town (or nearby towns). Excellent ribs and beans. The best part of any BBQ. They also have a pork tenderloin sandwich the I would recommend getting.

Excellent KC style BBQ..Nothing fancy, just GREAT food. Highly recommend. This is our go-to eatery for my son and I. A little drive for us but worth it..Service is great also. Give it a try.

Based on the reviews I chose to eat here instead of a fast food restaurant. It was a wise choice. The food is good. We had burnt ends/brisket with beans and slaw. The brisket was good, but served on a soggy piece of bread I could have done without. The beans were outstanding and I could’ve skipped the slaw all... More

Stopped by for a quick bite. The food was good, reasonably priced, and service was just fine. The best time for a visit is on Saturdays during the summer for the Jazz.

We chose the Wabash for dinner based on reviews and recommendations. It was an excellent choice! The brisket was very good but the burnt ends were excellent and don't forget the awesome fried pickles! Not a lot of seating, but worth the wait.

My wife and I stopped on Saturday for lunch.. The place was pretty busy but we were seated right away. We both ordered pork sandwiches and french fries. The pulled pork lacked flavor and needed the bbq sauce to make the sandwich. The fries were pretty good, the service was average. It is not a place I would go out... More
