Delicious barbecue

In a town full of barbecue places, this is my favorite. Lots of choices and all divine, excellent baked beans, and wonderful cole slaw as well. Friendly servers and a nice place.

At this time, this is the best Local Lee's Summit BBQ in town. It has been a local contender for decades; serving some of the best regional BBQ Baby Back Ribs, Burnt Ends, and crocks of Beans - unless you do your own personal ones. We enjoy traveling in the KC Metro region to test out other flavors; but when... More

Interesting building, parking lot was full, I was concerned that we wouldn't be able to get in. We went in, put our name on the waiting list and were told that it would be 35 to 45 minutes. Well, no one ever wants to wait that long to eat anywhere, but what a nice surprise, we were seated in less... More

They have some of the best BBQ in KC. Never had anything bad here. Always order their beans for family events. Making me hungry thinking about them.

I have eaten at Summit Hickory Pit BBQ several times. Friends of mine introduced me to this barbecue and my family and I have on numerous occasions. The most recent, I had guests in town and didn't want to travel to the Plaza or Power and Light district. They wanted barbecue, so we took them to Summit Hickory Pit. They... More

I have had a bad meal at Summit Hickory Pit once in about 20 years. As a result I will not order beef ribs there again. But they have the best burnt ends and sausage of any restaurant I have ever eaten at. Their beans are on par with Jack Stack. Their sliced meats are good. As for their other... More

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
