We have visited Oden's twice. It is s family run restaurant. The service is very good and friendly. The food is hit and miss - 2 of our 4 meals have been good and 2 just OK. The building (especially the restrooms) needs some sprucing up. If I could I would rate Oden's 3.5 but I am curving down.

We had a family lunch planned and decided to venture out for bbq. One of our party had been here before and recommend it from his memory. The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is good for groups. The food was just okay. We really expected tastier pulled pork and not as dry burnt ends. The three sauces on the... More

The burnt ends are actually meat, the beef and ribs are excellent. The sauce is a perfect fit for the style of smoke. Oden's is in a nice little family atmosphere and it has to be the most underrated venue in Kansas City.

Service was a little slow, BBQ average, nothing spectacular in my opinion. I actually was disappointed because of a few good remarks I had heard about it from other people.

Found this place driving down the HWY and WOW! Had a half slab of ribs. Out of this world. The meat stuffed potato was also incredible. To top it off free ice cream. Will be back as travels allow. Thanks.

The service was great! Our hostess & waitress were both very friendly and quick to get refills. The brisket & burnt ends (rib tips with caramelized barbecue sauce) were delicious, especially when covered in extra sauce (mix the normal & hot for a good balance). The ribs on the other hand were nothing special - they were fairly meaty, but... More
