We recently ate here for dinner and the BBQ was delicious. Service was outstanding. I highly recommend getting a sampler entree to try all the BBQ types. The Burnt ends sandwich which my son had was great!

If you like bbq, you'll love this place. Great area. Great atmosphere. Reasonable prices, not cheap, but it's bbq, bbq is not cheap. Burnt ends great. Potatoe salad great. Coleslaw great. Pass on the fries, get two other sides, beans great.

For an old establishment (60 years), the restaurant continues to serve great BBQ and sides (there are several locations). The Sampler with Burnt ends is a good start to taste their popular meats. The Hickory Pit Beans are thick with a wonderful subtle flavor – not too smoky. Cheesy Corn Bake is decadent and rich. It's a busy place, but... More

I had the burnt ends app, the soup of the day (gumbo) and an amazing salad. What a perfect meal. I couldn't ask for more. Some people like fatty burnt ends some like not fatty ones. They are hit or miss depending on your taste but no matter what they will melt in your mouth! So far my favorite BBQ... More

Excellent food excellent service excellent staff...PERFECT! Plan a bit of a wait if you arrive near the dinner hour...we waited about 30 minutes on a Saturday night. Place was packed. Worth every minute to enjoy the Prime Rib and the burnt ends...coleslaw is absoutely devine! EHHEHE

Had dinner on a Friday while in town for a concert. The place smells wonderful, for blocks on end! Pricing is a bit steep, but food is good. One small tip is to provide extra sauce on the side as it is pretty sparse from the start. Very busy, nice decor.

Best burnt ends I've had. I actually prefer the pork over the beef, but both are great! Tons of flavor... even the sliced meats are flavorful. This is one of my go-tos when I'm in KC. Even though its a chain, they do it right!

This restaurant is simply fantastic. The food was amazing, good staff and a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend this restaurant. I had the dinner platter called Jack's Best which was essentially a sample platter of their best items and they were great!!!! Definitely worth a visit.

The best wrre the beef short ribs. A bit too much of the chain feel to it; I always prefer a single location place. But it was recommended, and worth it. Had to wait with one of those buzzers that call you when they're ready for you. When we finally asked how much longer we'd have to wait, they said... More
