“Great quick eats stop”
Review of Cox Brothers BBQ

Cox Brothers BBQ
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: $5 - $39
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: This location is temporarily CLOSED while we take some time to perfect a NEW style of BBQ. Catering services will, however, continue to be available throughout the Flint Hills during this time! When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn’t decide which kind of ‘Q’ we loved the most… so we just decided to offer it all. Now, we’re working on a one-of-a-kind "Cox Bros. style BBQ" that will be unique to our region, but we feel like we can only do this effectively at one location first. So we’re starting in Manhattan, KS. Then we’ll bring it over to Junction City after it’s been perfected. We look forward to being back up and running in Junction City sooner or later.

Stopped here on a road trip xcountry. Food was great BBQ fare. Place was clean and friendly with country roadhouse atmosphere and big screen TV. A real step up from fast food with all the convenience of a quick stop. Sure beats McDonald's!

We've eaten BBQ all over the U S. Cox compares favorably with Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina, and KC. The pulled pork was full of flavor, perfectly smoked, tender, and delicious. The sauce was just right. The sweet potato fries and pineapple slaw were good. My only negative was that I got a little piece of bone in mine, which could have been a dental disaster. I wish I lived near here so I could eat at Cox often.

Food is great! No denying that. It's close to the interstate and easy to find. KC is too far, so Cox is where I run for a BBQ fix. TY!

Just another home down BBQ joint. They serve sausage, brisket, pulled pork, and ribs. They have there own unique BBQ sauces which are very tasty on your meal. The food is very tasty. However, just average, nothing special about this place.

I had the pulled pork barbecue sandwich. It was very tasty. So were the onion rings. THis restaurant was much like City Barbecue in Columbus, Oh.
