“New York BBQ and Choppers.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2012

The atmosphere was OK, but the food is not real BBQ by any means. My burnt ends had NO smoker ring at all, just cooked slathered in sauce. This is Kansas City, if your going to sell BBQ you had better get it right. Prices were high the food was poor and the service average. Famous Dave's is not far away and it's much better.

If you want real KC BBQ try RJ's BBQ Shack, Fiorella's Jack Stack, Gates or one of the other hundred BBQ places in town.

“Where are the crowds?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2012

We went to eat at a restaurant that evidently went out of business. We stumbled upon Backfire BBQ quite by mistake. The hostess was wonderfully friendly and accommodating to our family of eight. She even allowed all six children to take pictures on the Orange County Chopper by the hostess stand. The atmoshere was fun, playful and child-friendly. Most surprisingy, the food was fabulous! So, we are left wondering, where are the crowds at this exceptional restaurant?

“Great Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 26, 2012

I had the ribs and they were awesome. It kept me so full that I wasn't even hungry at dinner time.

My wife had the burnt ends, which were good, just a tad bit salty.

We loved all the Harley's throughout.

“Ok but not Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012 via mobile

Went during lunch it wasnt too busy. Ordered pulled pork. It was a bit dry not usually the case when you order same item at other establishments. The decor was nice an family friendly. Staff was friendly an welcoming.
