With all the picks of barbecue facilities in the Kansas City metropolitan area, I am always aware of comparisons at different barbecue facilities. Smokehouse BBQ restaurant is a gorgeous restaurant. The decor is beautiful. My salad was average. I liked how the menu had a great variety of items and they accommodate you if you want a dry burnt end... More

I held a casual post -wedding meal for approx 30 friends and family here June 21st, 2014. The managers were friendly and efficient in assisting me and had the private dining room set up nicely. We ordered from a set menu of choices & everyone was happy with their food and service. They allowed us to bring in a wedding... More

While we have a Smokehouse BBQ in the KC North area, the one in Independence is our favorite location. The facilities are much, much nicer, but the food is the same great Smokhouse BBQ. My wife and I usually split the sliced three meat plate with baked beans and slaw. We usually order 2 brisket portions with ham and always... More

I was passing through the area and wanted bbq, but I had my grandma with me do I needed to find a place that was a little nicer than a typical great bbq spot. So this place wasn't my first choice for food but it fit my needs. The prime beef ribs were very tender and good. My grandma had... More

We had just spent the day at the hospital and certainly didn't want fast food or to go in and sit at a restaurant. So it was wonderful to see Smokehouse BBQ did take out. We both had the Smokehouse Special, 10.95. It's 2 meats on a French roll. The strange thing, it had shredded lettuce and tomato slices. The... More

Brisket dinner was really good, very tender! We went a little before 4:00 pm had no wait for a table, dinner came out pretty quick. The restaurant itself is a bit dark, it would be nice if they would open it up a bit.

Huge portions, lots of smoke flavor and our favorite baked beans with bits of brisket in them. Can't get enough of them! Great value as well.

My family and I stopped by for a Sunday lunch. There were 6 of us in the party, so we had to wait about 45 minutes for a table. Drinks, and ordering came quickly. The food took about 20 minutes to arrive. Not to bad, but a bit slow. I had the pork ribs platter and it came with baked... More

The pulled pork was very good for it's tenderness and taste but the restaurant itself had a rather generic restaurant atmosphere as apposed to a true pit-BBQ joint. I therefore found the atmosphere to be somewhat lacking but other diners might prefer it's clean and standard look.
