I like the atmosphere and the service was very good. It's not a place that stands out. You have to really look for it. I had high hopes when I entered for some great ribs, but it just didn't meet my expectations.

ALL I can say is COLD, crappy BBQ is NOT good and that's what KC's has. Bar ladies more interested in putting on make up and tending to the sloppy bar regular tippers...BLECK YOU WANT SUPERIOR CAN'T BE BEAT BBQ? GO TO GOODLI COLES IN BRENTWOOD, NH! EXIT 7 OFF 101 :)

KCs is a fine mix of Cajun, Texas, Kansas City and Memphis with a side of Carolina...great Huge rib portions, excellent pork, Burnt ends were included with not extra, dirty rice that would make any cajun proud, beans with all thr right goodies, overall a great meal served by friendly staff. Highly recommend ...
