We really like Oden's for the variety on the menu. It's not just BBQ there are plenty of choices. They also have good specials. We have always had good service. Maybe not over the top but solid and not ignored. Food has never disappointed.

Had dinner there and it was wonderful. Food was delicious and service was excellent and friendly. Had a great variety of food so if you don't want BBQ there are many other choices. Desserts looked delicious but we were all to full to have any!

We were in the area and stopped by today, but they were closed. It looks like there is some sort of construction going on, so I'm not sure if this is temporary or permanent.

Consistently good home cooked food. It's been our favorite bbq place in the Kansas City area for years, and that saying a lot considering how many are around here. Family run operation for close to 30 years, and the staff turn over is practically non...More
