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.

I'm from Florida, and we think we have a good barbecue in Florida. Wanted to try barbecue in Kansas City Missouri. Went to Smokehouse BBQ for lunch on Friday. I ordered the baby back ribs and they were very good. They were falling off the bone which is the true mark of good baby back ribs. I would get them... More

June 7 2014 Ordered for two adults and 3 children. I've never written a review because this is how awful it was. I ordered beef briskets, beans,french fries and toast. My wife ordered a chicken sandwich. I took a couple bites of my brisket slices and they were cold not to mention very bland. No taste whatsoever and the deeper... More

We arrived about 7 p.m. on a Wednesday night. Restaurant wasn't extremely busy, we were seated promptly. However, we waited a long time to be greated by a server who came to take our drink order. She said that she was helping our server out and he would be right with us. Waited another 10 minutes, then another lady showed... More
