Kansas City has the best barbecue and, despite the name, this is the consistently best meat and sides in town. It is worth the wait in line at any of the three locations.

We have eaten at Oklahoma Joe's a couple of times when traveling, and thought it was great. We like their sauce, the quality and preparation of the meat.

Very good food. Tender, well cooked meats & ribs. Chicken is excellent. Sauces available from mild to scorch your mouth spicey. Don't let the line to order throw you. It moves quickly.
Let'em know if it's your first visit & friendly staff walk you through the menu and the process. It's a barbeque joint! HAVE FUN!

We have tried all the KC BBQ joints and this is by far our continued favorite. The ribs always come off the bone without being over cooked. The Okey Joe and Z-man are the best sandwiches. One order of fries will feed 4. Worth the wait and don't worry their will be a seat for you. They are closed on Sunday, good for them and their employees.
