On a recent visit to visit family in KC I wanted to try some good, authentic KC BBQ. I had heard Arthur Bryants mentioned before so I wanted to try it. As some who is pretty good at smoking and grilling meat myself, I definitely have a strong opinion on what I think is good BBQ, and I have to... More

What can I say that has not already been said. So many famous people have eaten here, that says a lot about the place. I had burnt ends and wife had turkey. Her turkey was the best I have ever eaten. The regular BBQ sauce was OK but we both preferred the spicy. Easy access from I70 - would eat... More

Excellent, but expensive. Waited over an hour to get in the door for Saturday lunch. Generous portions, but the sides are extra.

Visited ABBBQ on last Sunday morning. Arrived a little after 11 and there was already a line. Had the burnt ends sandwich and the baked beans. While the sandwich was excellent, the beans may have been the best I've ever eaten. Will go again if ever in KC.

KC is a BBQ town,,,everybody knows that. While here, you should stop by on of the originals. My personal favorite, along with severa celebrities and Presidents. This is a no frills place to eat. Not fancy, just really good(and a lot) of slow cooked BBQ.

I love KC BBQ. Lots of great choices. However, in my book Arthur Bryant's is the best BBQ in KC. Yes (Oklahoma) Joes is really good. I love Gates too. To me, AB is still the #1.

I have not been to Arthur Bryants in YEARS - I never cared for it. Thought I would give it another try since it was close to where I work, and, not busy. I guess to each their own - much like some people think bbq outside of Kansas City is good - some people think this is great bbq.... More
