Home of The Crispy

This is a great BBQ restaurant in a metropolitan area know and revered for BBQ. So far, one of my favorite things about Smokehouse BBQ is The Crispy which is chopped brisket on a bun (a hoagie bun for the larger size crispy). I also absolutely love their BBQ beans, also. If you like Zarda BBQ beans... read more

This is a shame. It's convenient to a lot of things. Shopping. Movies events center. It's just mediocre bbq. Sides are good. Nothing to write home about. Go to fiorellas smoke stack in lees summit.

The last few times that we have chosen to eat there, we were kind of let down. The food was just alright. We left there feeling unsatisfied. The cauliflower which I usually love was over cooked And for close to eight bucks, you get a very small bowl. We even had a gift card and wasn't very happy about our... More

Ordered the Sampler Platter and couldn't eat the ribs they were like jerkey; the burnt ends. . .were, well, burnt; the chicken was luke warm. Should have just stayed with the beans and cheesy corn, which was rather tastey.

High school buddy visits KC in preparation for a meeting with Hallmark. Haven't seen him in 25 years! Wanted a really good representative of KKC BBQ that is close to home. Burnt End Platter was just the ticket and did not disappoint!!! Super Crispy for me and it was game on!!!

On my GF's recommendation we had dinner here recently and it doomed me from ever going to another Sonny's or it's like in Florida. This was the second time I'd been here. Both times for dinner. The first thing that strikes you are the portions. Huge. The first time I had a spicy BBQ sandwich that out of pure determination... More

We had the salad and sliced meat (choice of beef, pork, ham, sausage, chicken or turkey) sandwich for lunch. I opted for pork and my husband ordered beef. Both sandwiches had generous portions of meat served on a 4" French roll for $10.95. The meat was moist and tender and the bread was fresh. The sandwiches were good, but not... More
