Were looking for good barbeque and found it here. The ribs were well smoked-altho somewhat over-sauced for my taste. The meat was easily pulled from the bone. The greens were good-according to my wife. The mac-n-cheese was a little runny and had us feeling that it probably was from a mix. This an order at the counter and carry your... More

What's up with Mr. K's BBQ? I went there on Monday night and it was dead! It doesn't surprise me considering they were out of RIBS and SAUSAGE? A BBQ place with no ribs is like a bar with no beer. Anyhow they better step it up or it will be closed in no time.

Despite the web site name, this is far from the best BBQ in Tucson. I tried the combo there, with pulled pork, turkey, and smoked sausage. The smoked sausage was the best of the bunch, but even that was not very good. The BBQ sauces were all very thin and watery, and lacking in flavor. The sides were even worse... More

Good self service food. Very large sandwich and ample amount of french fries. I am from Kansas City so this does not compare with the great BBQ they have but this is good.

This is our 3rd visit to Mr K's in the past year. Its a very simple place--picnic tables (with table clothes), cafeteria style service, country music playing in background and sports on the flat screens. Very clean. The great part of all that, is we aren't paying for fancy anything--just for the food. Which was very good each time we... More

I enjoy barbecue. I've eaten it in Texas, Kansas City, and Memphis. Mr. K's holds their own against any that I've had. Recently, I had them cater my wife's birthday party. We had chopped brisket, pulled chicken, and ribs. My guests raved about everything, and we had hardly any leftovers. The ribs were especially popular - smoky and tender, enhanced... More

The menu included brisket, hot sausage links, Chicken, and many other taste tantalizing entrees. They have a house Sauce that is the best I have had and I travel a good part of the country.

Having had 'southern BBQ' in various Southern states (although growing up in California 'BBQ' was a verb, not at all what it is in the South), and when we discovered Mr. K's BBQ in Tucson the last time we visited, we were so pleased! This combines what I understand to be the special nature of Texas BBQ (especially the brisket),... More

The side are just as good as the meat, The candied jams & collard greens are superb, they also serve mean string beans & BBQ beans. Also are slaw, corn,... More

We went to try this restaurant as we had a coupon from our Entertainment book. I had the pulled pork sandwich and my husband had the brisket sandwich. The pulled pork was very dry and totally tasteless. I tried all 3 of their BBQ sauces in an attempt to save it and didn't like any of the sauces. My husband's... More
