Well worth a visit if you're a top gun fan! Loads of memorabilia, great atmosphere, friendly and fun!
I love bbq and try new places any time I can. Was happy to discover this place across the street from my hotel. One afternoon I tried the pulled pork sliders and mac N cheese balls during happy hour. The pulled pork was tender and cooked perfect. The mac N cheese balls we crispy on the outside and soft and... More
We ate at the KCBBQ because it was convenient to our convention hotel. Its a fun place to eat just because of the history of the restaurant. The BBQ was average. We left satisfied with our meal and experience.
If you're a 40-something Top Gun fan and you want to sit where a scene from the movie was shot, have a beer at the bar and then go someplace else to eat.

I visited with friends because of the scene from top gun. I was slightly disappointed with the cleanliness of the place but the food was tasty and had an opportunity to take photographs with several props from the movie before heading off to USS Midway :)
