I took a risk and had lamb ribs which I've never seen before. I loved them! I also had the burnt ends which is the KC BBQ must. We had a wonderful server, and helpful hostess that got us to the MAX stop.

Most people have their favorite BBQ places in KC. This is one of my top 2. It's a sit down restaurant, reasonably priced. Definitely check out the cheesy corn and the baked beans sides.
