Of all the places in the market we picked this spot to eat. The service was OK the food left us wishing we had not. The Arabia steam boat Museum was great though.

Yuck...we got the three meats with two sides dinner. The dirty table should have been my first clue but that has never scared me off if the food is good. The "roasted corn" was day old boiled corn, the ribs were tender but too salty, the cole slaw was watery and tasteless and the brisket and pork were dry and... More

This seemed an appealing place for lunch -- outdoor tables in a bustling City Market. We sat at a table and the oilcloth table cloth was sticky and smelled badly. We moved and things were worse. Waitress was happy and pleasant and our food -- the daily pulled pork special -- was out promptly. Folks, this is NOT Kansas City... More

Extra pulled pork and extra good service is what you'll receive at this spot. You will not be unhappy with any side you choose, either. After a yummy lunch you can head right out the door to the Farmers Market.

In area for the first time for a wedding. Wanted to try some local BBQ and ended up at Winslow's as we wanted to check out the City Market on a cold December day. Food was good and staff was very good. Cannot compare it to any other BBQ in the area but would go back to Winslows's if in... More

Kansas City is a great town for barbecue, and Winslow's has been around for a very long time. So, it must be good to have survived this long. The lunch buffet is a great bargain -- particularly for the meat lover. But we weren't that hungry, so we just had a pulled pork sandwich. Very good -- and very substantial.... More

I had eaten at Winslow's one other time and wasn't really impressed, but last week I was in the River Market area and tried it again. Unfortunately, I experienced the same results. It is just not on par with real KC BBQ. It is not terrible, but it is not really good either. If you want a real KC BBQ... More

Number One Son's only request while were in KC was for BBQ. Winslow's was suggested to us by the museum gift shop clerk as being close and having BBQ. The smoky bbq smell is intoxicating as soon as you enter. I am mostly vegetarian but succumbed to the smell. There was nothing on the menu for the vegetarian daughter. Booths,... More

We wanted to try Kansas City BBQ, and we weren't disappointed. The portions were huge. My daughter and I split the pulled pork sandwich, and we each had plenty. The prices were reasonable for lunch, and the service was friendly and quick. The meat comes dry, and you add the BBQ sauce that you prefer that's on the table. We... More
