A hidden gem in Lee's Summit

We have dined at the Hickory Pit twice now and we are beginning to love it. Both times, both of our meals were fantastic. The service has been great both times, very friendly. My favorite part is the that the interior is much more modern than most other barbecue places in the area.

i telephoned the Hickory Pit to order carry out "baby back ribs" the price was about the same as a slab of larger ribs....usually baby backs are more meaty and smaller ribs....these were very disappointing....apparently their idea of baby backs is to take the smaller ribs from the regular slab and cut them in two....they had very little meat on...

We had a nice BBQ lunch. The sandwich was tasty, the meat tender, the fries just right. The slaw and beans weren't as good as a couple of other places, but that's a matter of personal taste.

My husband and I love barbecue. We had tried Summit Hickory Pit a few times in the past and it really never impressed us, but we decided to give them another chance because the location is near our home. The meat was on the dry side and hard to chew. I also didn't care for the beans. Everything else was... More

Enough variety in the menu to satisfy big and smaller appetites. Even with that we had take home. Wait staff was attentive and food was good. Prices were too. A first time visit.

Love the atmosphere here. Brick walls, antique doors and windows separate different areas. The food is delicious, service is good and food is served quickly. They can handle a crowd so usually there is no wait for a table. You MUST try their bread pudding.

Sometimes the smoked meat makes BBQ good, with this place it's the sauce and sides that set it apart. I ordered a sausage and burnt ends lunch platter which comes with bread, slaw and fries. I asked about the sauce and learned there is a sweet sauce and a "hot" sauce. I got the hot sauce on the side which... More

The food at Summit Hickory Pit is amazing. This is authentic BBQ. Atmosphere is comfortable and the service is exceptional. Sadly, because of the pricing, we often go to another BBQ place in the area that isn't as good but the pricing is much more reasonable.
