The famed Kansas City BBQ is known and desired all across the country. But in the heart of Kansas City, locals know Q39 is the place to go. Blending national-championship barbecue with wood-fire grill techniques, Q39 has mastered the techniques and process that creates perfect 'cue. Share-ables, soups and salads, specialty sandwiches, brisket burgers and award winning BBQ dinner plates make up a menu that features wood-fire grilling from top to bottom, but still allows for enough variety to satisfy any customer's needs. A menu filled with so many great options can be difficult to highlight, but the ""best wings on the planet"" and ""burnt-end burger"" are a few favorites you'll surely be back

Very good barbeque. A bit overpriced for what you get. Portion sizes are on the small end. Nice atmosphere. We sat out on the patio area by the fireplace. It is enclosed so it wasn't too cold.

I really enjoy the food here. The parking could use some work as it never feels like enough. Little pricey for KC bbq but definitely very good!
