We had heard good things about L.C.'s BBQ and finally found ourselves with the time to try it out. Wow, are we glad we did! We got a bit everything: brisket; pork; ribs; burnt ends; sausage. Plus a massive order of fries that they cut right there. All the servings were generous. The staff was helpful and welcoming. Everything was... More

Went here on the BBQ Bus tour. AWESOME smoked/baked beans they are the side to try along with their very good fries. We were served burnt ends and they were very good. It's now on my list of places to visit when I come to KC.

By far my favorite BBQ place in the Kansas City area! The owner always comes around and checks on the customers and ask how the food is and the food is always outstanding!

First place we went when we got to Kansas City. The smell was great and people were standing in line so we were excited. Ordered beef and pork burnt tips (which had been recommended by a baseball group) and a half chicken. When we got our food, there were few burnt tips but larger pieces of fatty, gristly meat. I...

Consistently great BBQ makes the consistently $&!tty service. And by crappy service I mean the person who works the cash register NEVER knows what is going on. Orders are constantly wrong, missing something or filled out of order. I called in my order to avoid the excessive wait, i was basically told "ok" after every item i listed...was not asked... More

Parking is tricky, seating is limited, the atmosphere is dingy, and the smell is incredible; in other words, KC barbecue at its finest! Tried the burnt ends and fries, which came in at $15, but was easily enough to share between two people. I didn't. The meat was excellent, but the sauce is what really stood out. LC's sauce deserves... More

There isn't much to look at here but the food is very good. My sister is a local and stops here on the way to Royals games. We had ribs and fries. I could have made a meal of the fries. The ribs were messy and good and the sauce better than most. There is limited seating and the place... More

When talking about Kansas City BBQ, LC's has to be in the conversation. My favorites? Their ribs, burnt ends (best in town), and their fries. Fries? Best I've ever had, no matter the venue. Wish I knew their secret. I could go there just to order the fries. They are THAT good. The burnt ends? They are not just chunks... More
