I love good BBQ. It's my favorite restaurant food, and have planned entire vacations around eating BBQ across the country. I also smoke good BBQ on a regular basis. We decided to give Blind Box BBQ in Shawnee a try for lunch during restaurant week....They were very busy but we were seated and our orders taken promptly. The food came out in a reasonable time and it was very good. The wings were amazing. The ribs were good and tender. The brisket and burnt ends were good although I prefer burnt ends more tender then a heavy crust, just my preference. The turkey was also moist and smoked nicely. The sweet potato fries and corn bake were also good. Our meal included desert and they were amazingly good. The restaurant was packed with a line waiting for open tables. Even though they were apparently one server short they were very efficient. Food out quick, drinks filled serveral times, doggy box provided and check provided as soon as were were ready. Great food and service.More

Went for lunch with my co-workers. There were 4 of us in our party. There is PLENTY of parking in this location. The location itself has a "hipster/yuppie" vibe. Not bad, but not really an identity either. Service was adequate and prompt. I ordered the...Burnt End Lunch Platter with baked beans. Even though I ordered later than the rest of the table, my food was delivered within 2 minutes of everyone else. The burnt ends were passably done, but had a taste of artificial smoke. They were tender, but didn't really have the feel of a true deckle cut. They were more like regular brisket cuts that had been sliced into cube-ish shapes. The accompanying sauce was reminiscent of KC Masterpiece mixed with a bit of vinegar to thin it out. Their overall taste was ok, but nowhere near what is available elsewhere in the KC area. The baked beans were good, if a bit more watery than I personally enjoy. Overall it was an average experience. Not bad. Not great. Just - average. Probably won't go back.More

We went out tonight craving great BBQ, which we’ve had there before. But tonight was far from that to say the least, waited the 20 minutes we were told, wait staff looked lost and overwhelmed . Host (young man) did everything possible to avoid seating...us or answering any questions, when I approached the mature woman with black hair that was running the bar and seems like the operation tonight….. and went to ask/explain we were past our time to set when there were numerous open tables… I was abruptly interrupted by her to tell me it would be 15-20 minutes… and when I tried to respond, rudely interrupted again. Unfortunately I spent 25+ years in food service management and she/staff has a lot to learn of working to seat customers in a dinner period. Won’t go back for sure and would encourage any to not try it out for BBQ, so sad with a great concept to be so unprepared for customers and Miss managed at the least.More

Meh is the best way to describe it. We each grab something a little different and while one thought it was good, another didn't like it at all and the other two thought it was only meh. The worst part about it was the awful...waiter. You have to scan their menu into uour phone and before we could even get it open the waiter was pestering us about what we wanted to order which was even more odd in that he didn't even take drink orders, just straight to the meal. The other wait staff was clearly miles ahead of him as they assisted us with our actual meals and condiments as ours was busy somewhere until it was time for the bill. The saltiness of the food would have made a refill amazing but that of course didn't happen. We won't be back, there are too many good options for BBQ in the area to give them another look.More

We’ve come to this restaurant a few times and have always enjoyed their food. Their prices are reasonable, and the food is just as good as some of the higher end popular BBQ restaurants in the area. Good food and good service!!!!!

This place was recommended by our hotel desk clerk, who just looked like he would know good BBQ. After a brief wait, my wife and I split the barbecued half chicken. It was well worth the wait. We ate outside, on the front deck of...the restaurant--very nice on a June evening.More

I went there for the Thursday rib special. I have to say, it wasn't my favorite. I guess I don't like the St. Louis style rib with the fat in the middle and the crusty top that made it almost too chewy! I'm guessing I'm...a baby back girl and wish they still had the option! With that being said, their sauces, sides and service were wonderful! I will go back and try some of their other meats!!More

I'm a BBQ fan and tried this place for lunch. We ordered the combo and two meat plate and baked beans. First time out, both dishes were barely warm. Second try wasn't much better. I had the brisket and turkey. Brisket was ok, and the...turkey was tough. Neither were very warm. The ribs were the only item that was at least warm. The burnt ends were mostly fat and not very warm.More
