I have had the opportunity to eat at Arthur Bryant's twice. This occasion was just as tasty as the time before. Food was tasty, and the service was good. A nice and tasty piece of Kansas City History!

I was surprised and pleased to discover an Arthur Bryant's BBQ out at the Legends in Kansas City, Kansas. We just split a ham sandwich with the fries and some bbq beans with some coleslaw. It is quicker than most places since you just walk through and order and pay at the end of the counter. There was not a... More

I have been here before but it has been a long time. I was getting together with some friends & we decided to go here as it has many good memories for us. When you walk in the place doesn't look like much. You wait on line to place your order, move down the line, pay & pick up your... More
