We have been to Wabash a few times now and have always been pleased with our service and the food. The brisket is amazing and the onion rings are too!

This place is terrific. Never disappointed. The onion strings are awesome. The service is always fast and friendly. We’ve never gotten anything that was subpar.

My wife & I had eaten here twice before. The first time the food was great. The second time most of the food was dry & over cooked. We just happened to be driving by around lunch time & thought we would try it again....More

Whenever we go, Wabash’s is crowded, but the food is always excellent as is the service. We really like the ribs and chicken, the onion strings, the slaw. It’s a very nice, charming, clean restaurant. Go!

I am not aware of daily specials, I do not eat there anymore because they do not smoke on premises. It is cooked in Excelsior Springs and reheated here.
