Read some mixed reviews on here which made us nervous. We ordered ahead and brought to our hotel for chow time. The place looks are deceiving, looks like a hole in the wall tastes like a grade A barbecue! We enjoyed two slabs of ribs,...potato salad, and bbq beans. Everything was exceptional and we had enough for the next day as well! Reheat was just as awesome!!! Definitely recommend the stuff we had!More

Surprisingly good. In town overnight for business so saw the mixed reviews but thought it would be better than Wendy's. I lived in Texas for 8 years and this is very close to Texas BBQ. Had the 3 meat platter. Pulled pork, burnt ends and...if course the baby back ribs. Sides were Cole Slaw and BBQ beans. Food was perfectly cooked. Tasty. Service from was quick and excellent. Desserts looked great too but I was stuffed! No complaints from me. Surprise in this little town. Casual and worth the visit.More

The food was very good. We had the baby back ribs. Very tender, good taste with a dry rub. Good amount fair price. If you are going for a fancy decor this is not the place. But what would you rather have fancy or great...taste.More

Had chicken sandwiches, slaw, potato salad delivered. Service was good but chicken was overcooked & hard. Salads had too much goo and not enough veggies. Sorry but would not recommend.

Well now... we stopped in around 09:30 one morning earlier this week during one of those marathon trips from Denver to D.C. We suspected they were not open given the time of day only to be suprised with smile and authentic hospitality. Nothing fancy or...pretentious. I ordered the ribs and the Mrs the burnt ends. Food was served quickly and accompanied by some good natured banter. We were delighted by the generous servings, quality cuts of meat and savory preparation. I enjoyed every morsel. The restaurant is adjacent to the feeway, easy on - easy off. This is the kind of place that is memorable for all the right reasons. I hope fate takes me back to Oak Grove sometime soon.More

They brought our Truckers Special to the KOA on time and hot. The BBQ Ribs were the best I've ever had and I loved the creamy corn and BBQ beans. The service delivery was friendly and we appreciated her time and trouble finding us. Highly...recommend.More

We had dinner delivered to the East Kansas City KOA on recommendation. The ribs were phenomenal with the mild sauce and the 3 piece box was a hearty portion. The Mac and cheese has a lighter creamy sauce than most baked Mac and cheese and...a delicious pepper that is not too overpowering. We ate the whole pint! Service was fast and friendly and delivered right to our trailer! Great choice after a long day on the road.More

Don’t let the outward or inward appearance deter you from eating here...it was delicious and served hot and fast. The ribs were meaty, tender and delicious and a great price. The loaded potato with pulled pork was delicious and they were kind enough to exchange...the usual nacho cheese with shredded cheese for me. Also my granddaughter had the cowboy nachos and she loved them and what a generous portion. I would definitely recommend this place and eat here again if I was ever passing through!More

I drive truck all over the US & Canada. I had such high hopes. Finding a new BBQ spot. The anticipation was way better than reality. I had the 3 meat platter with sausage, baby back ribs, burnt ends, coleslaw, cheese corn(cream cheese & butter)...with bread. Ribs were dry, third one was like jerky. Sausage was dry. Burnt ends were ok. Coleslaw was great. Cheese corn was ok but needs some seasoning. It’s bland. White bread.... Hmmmmmmm I’ve never seen that before. It’s always some kind of corn bread. Oh well.More

Evidently people who likes this food , don’t have taste buds or have had real BBQ . Potato salad was good and beans, but ribs and burnt ends awful and so was the Mac cheese. Save yourself and eat somewhere else!!

We were staying at the KOA and called in our order. We were surprised how quickly it was delivered, since we ordered right at dinner time. All we ordered was the rack of ribs — and, OH MY GOSH!!!! Absolutely the best we have ever...eaten!!! Moist, oh so meaty and literally falling off the bone!!! If you’re in the area, you don’t want to miss this place!!!More

This was our first bbq. We got the two meat combo platter. For the meat, we got chicken and brisket. For the sides, we got macaroni and cheese and Cajun potato Salad. The sides were good. The bbq sauce was hot or normal in a...dispenser bottle. The meat was good. The atmosphere of the restaurant was like an old home town place. It was a bit worn but clean and comfortable. There is outside seating.More
