This place is not my favorite BBQ, but good. It is a sit down and we will serve you place with consistently good food, but lacking what I consider real KC BBQ. Don't get me wrong, it is good, but I prefer to eat at one of my favorites for the same or a little less money. It is a... More

Had lunch today here...super yummy. We had one of their summer specials..odd as it is October...for the beef sliders with peach BBQ sauce. Wow. I got some spicy BBQ sauce on the side for my fries...that sauce knocked my socks off! Loved this lunch.

The ribs and brisket here are incredible. There are many BBQ joints that get much more notoriety, but honestly the ribs I had here were very very good. The service was stellar and side items were great as well. I wasn't as much of a fan of the turkey, but who really gets turkey at a BBQ restaurant any way?

You have not been to Missouri or Kansas nor had real barbecue if you have not had barbecue done Midwestern style. Summit is delicious. Service is not perfect but the friendliness makes up for that. Worth a stop in off the highway.

Four of us arrived at the restaurant at 1:10 on Sunday afternoon. wasn't busy. In fact, the area we were seated in, we were the only customers there. We got our menus promptly as we're seated. but then we waited for good 12 to 15 minutes. We finally put in our order, got the food in a short time. From... More

When I want a good meal and a pleasant place to eat it, I go to Summit Hickory Pit. My favorite meal is the Cajun grilled catfish with the potato casserole and a side salad. It's very good, and the value for the price is also good. The service is usually excellent.

The barbeque was mediocre at best, and the mixed drinks contained scant (if any) alcohol in them. This barbeque would not survive if it were located closer to downtown KC where much better barbeque is easily found.

The portion of beans was about 1/4 cup!!! The price is too high for what is served. The burnt ends sandwich was just OK.

Just like every restaurant you will see reviews from super positive to super negative. I'm going to be as honest as possible here. The atmosphere and location was super nice & clean. The waitress was incredibly kind & made you feel as if you were eating in her home. There didn't seem to be very many people at this location... More
