“Best BBQ in KC!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013 via mobile

I personally do not like the state of Kansas being a Columbia, MO native, but I I willing break my rule as often as possible to go to Oklahoma Joe's!! Best BBQ in the state! Try the Z-Man for an amazing sandwich! The fries are amazing and are served in abundance! I personally dip the fries in their spicy BBQ sauce "Night of the Living Bar-B-Q" and can't stop eating them til they are all gone. Not finishing everything on your tray is almost impossible!!

“Worth the wait!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Was there on a Saturday at 11am and the line was out the door! Line took about 20 min to get to counter to order.
Had a combo sandwich brisket/ham was great. Also had the burnt ends sandwich that was the best sandwich I have ever had! Not everyday you can say you had the best sandwich ever! But it was that good. Only problem is they only have the burnt ends on Wednesday and Saturday.
Would highly recommend, worth the wait

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

I love BBQ and Okalhoma Joe's is among the best. They provide the Kansas City style BBQ which made the meat moist and fall off the bone good. The prices were great and I would definatley eat here again.

“Don't be discouraged by the long line....It moves fast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Don't be discouraged by the long line....It moves fast and the food is worth it. There is no better BBQ in Kansas City than that from the old gas station:)
