Good BBQ joint

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.

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

Just had a slab of ribs! Their bbq sauce is so good. They were moist and the staff was helpful. Keep your feet on the ground as the floor is slippery

We purchased enough food to feed bout 20 people and we were unpleasantly surprised! The ribs barely had meat on them and they were cooked to a crisp! The beans were so sweet that the pop that we were drinking with it caused it to taste like diet pop! The brisket was just okay and the fries were thick and... More

Excellent BBQ. Got the all meat mix of meats: ribs, brisket and pulled pork. More than we could eat and it was even better the next day. Staff was very helpful. Real down home BBQ atmosphere with the doors to the pit opening into the building.

Loved the smokey, classic feel of LC's, just wish they'd put the brisket and ribs on the smoker a few hours earlier (both were pretty tough). The smoked pork was shaved, making it much easier to eat and it was very tasty. All of the meats had an intense smoke flavor (which I like) thanks to the classic smoking technique... More

Had heard so much good about LC's Barbecue so we stopped in there on Labor Day. It is correctly said that the place is not much too look at. Inside smells wonderful with all the smoke. Ordered a pound burnt ends and a pound of pork. Pork was just okay but the burnt ends were like chewing a rubber tire.... More

My wife and I visited Kansas City in July of 2014, and wanted to sample some of the great barbecue available. We started with KC Barbecue Tours ( Highly recommend them ). The tour took eleven of us from out of town to four sites, two of the biggest and well known and two others. LC's was included. We heard... More

On our way to Colorado we stopped in for a bit to eat after seeing this BBQ place on Anthony Bourdain show. When you look at it you'll think No way am I going in here but trust me you need to go in. I got sausage and beef brisket. Oh my heavenly word. It's a lil smokey inside but... More
