Great atmosphere, sweet staff. PLEASE bring back the original beans. The new ones taste like canned pork and beans. Awful! Everything else is top notch. Best sauce in Kansas City bar none!

As always, the pork ribs dinner for 2-3 is delicious. It comes with coleslaw, baked beans, fries and Texas toast. Order an appetizer of corn fritters, and your meal is set! The waiter was attentive, and the ambiance was rich, yet tranquil.

Best burnt ends and beans in the area! Fast service dine-in. If you call ahead your order is ready for pick-up very quickly. Get the burnt ends, beans and fries!

We went for my husband's birthday dinner. He loves Smokehouse, especially the ribs. My daughters and I thought it was only okay. The food was good but not great, in my opinion. There is a beautiful stained glass dome in the center of the restaurant. It is almost worth going just to see the dome.

We took our 4 year old grandson for a dinner out with his grandparents and we were very surprised at how efficient Smokehouse BBQ performed on a Saturday night just before Christmas. Tim was our waiter and did a marvelous job, The food was good and served timely. A great place to eat.

Just average sauce. Not much of a dry rub. Slaw was good and so were the beans. Probably wouldnt go back. Much better BBQ in KC.

took three business associates to smoke house BBQ in Independence, food was good, beans were outstanding and we had good service. A little pricey but worth the wait and the price.

This is one of my favorite bar-B-Q restaurants. Their beans are excellent, if you like cold slaw theirs is the best. I only eat chicken and their half of chicken is always moist. Never had bad service here. Enjoy relax try their spicy Bloody Mary very good.

Kansas City is famous for BBQ and we have one on every corner. I consider myself a BBQ connoisseur. In my opinion, the two best BBQ places in Kansas City is JackStack and Smokehouse. When it comes to BAKED BEANS, Smokehouse is unsurpassed! My favorite place to eat when I want BBQ!

Smokehouse has been in Indep for many years. It is always consistently good. Nice smokey flavor and tender. Chicken ribs. Beef ham and pulled pork. Slaw is a mayonnaise slight vinegar slightly sweet perfect. Beans are meat and flavorful. If baba isn't your thing. The smoked salmon is very good too. A good go to place.
