We were looking for some "authentic Kansas City BBQ" and when those places were filled to capacity, we passed this place on Troost. Upon sight, I drove right passed it, did not attract my eye.

Nasty, nasty, nasty!!! This place is gross. Not to mention it's in the heart of the ghetto. Don't be fooled just because UMKC is on the same street. Not safe!!!
