Noisy But Okay

Food Okay But Not Outstanding Given Bbq So Popular In The Area

Drinks Expensive For Domestic Beers That Really Surprised Me.

They have some of the best ribs here that we've ever had at a restaurant, and that's saying a lot since this is in Kansas City. Always enjoy good, friendly service here, and have even been accommodated on the patio with our small dog!

The vintage gear both inside and outside the restaurant is fun. The service was quick and painless; no long wait time. The price was what you would expect for a place like this, barbeque, and at the Legends; but portions are huge and the food tastes great. My young son really enjoyed the motorcycle faucets in the bathroom as well as being able to see what the chefs were doing while we sat at our table. The only thing I would have like to have seen is more reference to the OCC guys or their show. Only a few drinks/meals mentioned Paul or anything regarding OCC. But I would definitely go back if I found myself in the area again.

Went for first time today to Backfire BBQ. Place has nice atmosphere, with all kinds of cool vintage motorcycles and cars surrounding the diners. Service was very prompt today. The waitress was happy to help us decide what to get, giving us details on several menu items. All staff members were hustling, getting food and drink out in a timely manner and taking care of customers. Nice to see. Burnt ends delicious, brisket very good. Ribs middle of the road and not much meat on them for the money, Beans mediocre and steak fries very good. All in all a solid bbq place. As mentioned by others, barbecue may not quite be up to the standards of the very best joints in KC, but it is good. Much better than many places in town - will return in future.

We have been frequenting Backfire for a couple of years now on a regular basis. Service is prompt and friendly, portions are generous and the prices fair. Our favorite dishes included the 4 variety of hot wings (discounted on Tuesdays), the combo / sample platters and brisket sandwich. Great fries and sauces.
