The food is good. Meat has a decent smoke to it. Onion rings are really good. They have a couple of different kinds of sauce on the tables, I like that. Side choices are good. They don't offer much beef though. Sometimes I'd like some beef. The service is good. They are fast, friendly, courteous. My favorite thing is the... More

Great location down the street from our hotel. We had a full rack, which is ribs and tips and my son had a pulled pork sandwich. The bark was pretty dark and the smoke flavor was very strong. Not terrible, but if you don't like a ton of smoke maybe not for you. Lathered in sauce rather than letting the... More

Passing through KC and was recommended here by a local. Great sides (cheeses potatoes, baked beans, Mac n cheese, fried pickles), but the ribs were just okay. Could be that I am not a wet rub person, but the sandwiches others were eating looked great. Excellent service as well.

Stopped in Kansas City location, the food was excellent! Get the "burnt ends" the meat is tender and delicious. Ribs were meaty. They offer several different sauces, something for everyone. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Yummy BBQ. They have a good selection of food single plates or family size and they have gluten free options also. They can accommodate large groups and they have a salad bar.

I visit the area once or twice a year and I always stop by since it's my dad's favorite bbq place. My wife and I got beef and turkey plates... Both were really good. Unlike some reviews, we got plenty of smoked meat flavor. I plan to keep coming back and I recommend giving it a try.

The food just wasn't good. I would rather eat my own barbecue at home on the grill. I went with friends one night and my friends boyfriend worked there and was buying our dinner and I just had a soda. It's sad when you won't even take the free food.

Thank ilovemykids17
