Good BBQ. Good service.

The food was pretty good. I did not love the sauce, but it was still pretty good! We ate everything on our plates!!! Service was good too! The food came out very fast!

Very nice restaurant. Well staffed. Very good cuts of meats. Ribs are great. Burnt ends could be a bit more burnt. Personally I'd prefer a little less sauce. Very moist meats. Hint - eating here before an event at the Independence Events Center? Allow at least 45 min, parking/traffic is congested.

In a city full of BBQ, this is the place we go to for a great meal every time! Great burnt ends, and the Pit Beans are incredible! The meat is always tender, and the sauce is slightly sweet, the way I like it! The dinner portions are very large, in fact, my wife and I share a platter most... More

Somehouse BBQ was highly recommended by a friend & justly so. We ordered the onion ring,s which came with a wonderful ranch dressing, were some of the best we've had. I had the pulled pork sandwich that was very tender & tasty while Mark had the ham sandwich. They both came with fries & coleslaw. We will return on our... More

Our go-to restaurant. Great pork ribs. Fantastic burnt ends. Must-have corn nuggets. Best beans anywhere. The only cole slaw recipe I eat. To sum it up, great food, every time. Friendly service, too. What more can I say!

I've been a fan of Smokehouse BBQ for over 20 years, my personal favorites are the Ribs, the Super Crispy chopped Burnt End sandwitch, and the best Burnt Ends in KC. Add the hot BBQ sauce and it's always a winner.

Kansas City has lots of BBQ places everyone will have their opinion on which is best we like this BBQ. We have taken family and friends to eat there they love it. Baked beans are the best

We arrived in Independence late Sunday night and saw that this place was open, so we decided to give it a shot. Prices were appropriately standard of what one might expect at such a place. Our waiter, Sergio, was very attentive and helpful with suggestions. Food was good, if a bit heavy on the sauce. I would say the most... More

I've lived in KC area most all my life. I think we have the absolute best BBQ in the world. I've had it all.. Texas, North Carolina, Memphis.. They all fall way short of KC.. And I've eaten at most every place here in town.. now I must say that I have had better from time to time than Smoke... More
