I love this place!! I have never had a bad meal here! I like to order a pound of brisket and a pound of pulled pork and then get some good sides and good bread and makes for a great dinner with friends or family. Great for a picnic!! Love it!!!

I have not eaten at the restaurant but we order take out often. As you know, Kansas City is known for Bar-B-Que. There are many options, sauces, and styles. In my opinion, there is none better than Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que. The meat is oh so tender, the sauce is perfect. My absolute favorite is the burnt end sandwich. The... More

This used to be Oklahoma Joes's, but the partners went their separate ways. While this place serves very good food, it is no longer a top BBQ restaurant in Kansas City. We drove to Tulsa, OK to eat again at Oklahoma Joe's if that tells you anything.

We went for lunch to take my sister who was visiting from out of townat the Overland Park location. Our food was disappointing. The French Fries (by far their best side) were not crisp and were short on seasoning. The meat was warm and lacked the usual knock your socks off taste. It was 11:30am on a Saturday and we... More

Just love this place! We had company in from North Carolina and told them we are going to take you to the best Barbecue in KC and they love it. It's a must have if you visit KC.
