This is my go to restaurant when traveling through Kansas. The ribs and beans are better than any I have tasted anywhere else, and the brisket and chicken are my secondary no-fail choices. The ribs are incredibly meaty and well worth the cost. I would...More

I stop by every time I am back through Salina. Best BBQ around and best food in town. Ran by great family and been a quality stop for several decades now. It's a must stop if you are eating in Salina.

If you like Kansas City style barbecue, you will love this place. Slow cooked over hickory and a sweet sauce- perfection. Try the slab of ribs or better yet a slab of baby back ribs. Beans, potato salad, and fries are great. Have not tried...More
