“Yum! Yum! Yum! GREAT BBQ!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Oklahoma Joe's food is delicious...period! It is a casual atmosphere and busy. If you don't care for the full restaurant, you can order take out. It is just as delicious. We love their brisket especially. Remember, they are closed on Sundays.

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

The BBQ here speaks for itself. This is traditional Kansas City BBQ. If you are looking for a nice fancy BBQ restaurant then keep on driving; because that is not real BBQ. You stand in line; line moves fast, fill your own drink and take your food to your table. Nothing fancy but BBQ shouldn't be fancy!

“Laid back BBQ”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

I love the BBQ at Oklahoma Joe's. The fries are great too and there is enough to share in one serving. I love the laid back atmosphere of the restaurant. Unless you go early, plan to stand in line to get this awesome BBQ.

“It's KC BBQ at its best!”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

This is the best meat in KC. Look no further! The kids love the ribs. I like the Z-Man. The Fries on the side are great, and you can't go wrong with their beans. For a lighter side I highly recommend the Spicy Slaw. Its a winner!
