There are many bbq places in KC and thisis by far one of the best. The ribs are great and the service is wonderful. We had a friend with that was in a wheel chair and was able to easily get around.

You know there's a hickory pit here before you walk through the door. Great food and good prices. Their brisket is one of the best I've had..

Eight of us went for dinner, and were not disappointed. Service was good and the food was good. Atmosphere is nice in the kinda typical BBQ place kind of way. The 8 of us had plenty of elbow room.

Below-average BBQ and the worst broccoli I have had in years! The service was fine, but nothing taken off the bill. It’s never a good sign when the replacement for the broccoli was baked beans and they were the best part of the meal. I had the “special” BBQ Pit Rib Dinner and it was tough with the most bland...

We went out for a quick bite to eat and decided on BBQ. The food was great and our service was excellent. Highly recommended dining in Lees Summit.

This was my first trip to Summit Hickory Pit. Got a slab of baby back ribs to go. They we very meaty and had a decent flavor but somewhat dry. I will give them another chance before I render final judgement.

My Brother and I picked up a lunch order to go for my family recently - mainly sandwiches, a slab of baby back ribs and fries. I ordered a pulled pork sandwich which had a decent smoky flavor but was tough, dry and chewy. The rest of the reviews within my family were mixed - some good, some not so... More

i telephoned the Hickory Pit to order carry out "baby back ribs" the price was about the same as a slab of larger ribs....usually baby backs are more meaty and smaller ribs....these were very disappointing....apparently their idea of baby backs is to take the smaller ribs from the regular slab and cut them in two....they had very little meat on...

We have dined at the Hickory Pit twice now and we are beginning to love it. Both times, both of our meals were fantastic. The service has been great both times, very friendly. My favorite part is the that the interior is much more modern than most other barbecue places in the area.

Thank Joshua W
