Outstanding bbq dive

Traveled through KC last week and had to make a stop in this BBQ hotbed. First looked for any Triple D joints but they were all downtown. Found LC's review on TA and it was close to I494 so it that was our choice. First off, KC appears to be a dump..at least this area. Passed another bbq on... read more

Catered a lunch for 50. Excellent ribs and smoked pork. The potato salad was amazing. The beans were gone before I could try them. The sauce was fantastic. Highly recommend.

Last night we were headed to the Royals game with an out of town guest. He wanted to try local fare which of course in Kansas City had to be BBQ!! I wanted Gates but one of my co-workers insisted on LC's for the atmosphere and he insisted their BBQ was as good if not better than Gates. OH HOW... More

For the tldr; Food was a "5", atmosphere and service were a "1" at best. First, I might say that I am a very easy going reviewer and quite easy to please. I do not expect much, really, from my dining experiences. So, it pains me to even give a "3" review, as I recognize that this is a small... More

The ribs and beef brisket have a uniquely and deliciously strong smoky flavor. Usually I don't care for strong smoke flavor, but LC turned that upside down. It was delicious. My son and I wanted to go back for more 2 hours after our visit.

So glad we chose to stop in at LC's for a BBQ lunch. As my friend and I walked in, we were warmly greeted and upon hearing this was our first time at this BBQ the pick 3 meats was suggested for us, We chose the ribs, tips and ham which came with a side of fries and beans. The... More

I loved the fact that when they opened the smoker, it filled the entire dining area with smoke. Great meat at a great price. Man was it tasty.

Stopped by here last week with some friends. Never heard of this place but they had but had never tried it. Outside is a little intimidating - bars on doors & windows, not in a great location - but that adds to the allure. Outfitted with kitchen chairs & tables, the place really isn't that big. The people were nice.... More

I'm going to go one more time before I make a final call on this BBQ joint. It is a hole in the wall, and which scores some BBQ points, but the time I went I had some brutally dry and chewy burnt ends. Left shaking my head at all the positive word of mouth this place gets. Maybe trip... More

Kansas City BBQ speaks for itself. Most tourists will have heard of Oklahoma Joe's or Gates BBQ (both excellent). However, LC's is consistantly outstanding and the wait times are significantly less. I usually go with the BBQ chicken or ribs. The side dishes are very tasty as well. Extra notes: -This is not the place to go if you are... More
