This place has the best BBQ meat in KC. Their sauces are a bit bland aand can be inconsistant.

“Used to be good... not any more.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2012

It had been a while since I ate at Winslow's, but remembered liking it. So I headed there with some out of town guests as it was a close place to grab some BBQ. Big mistake. A worker told us it had changed ownership a couple years ago. Service was slow & not very sharp. The worst part was the food though. It was the worst BBQ I've had in a long time. We ordered several of their sauces, but none were to our liking. The pulled pork was ok, but no where near as good as many other options in KC. I had a chicken sandwich which was an unappetizing pile of chunks of meat & skin totally soaked in a nasty maple sauce. I couldn't eat but a couple of bites after wiping off as much sauce as I could. The fries were unimpressive and the slaw had a weird taste to it. Even if it was the only BBQ place in town I would never eat here again.

“Winslow's is dedicated to great music and BBQ!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

We had a great time at Winslow's enjoying the band, Knock Kneed Sally and eating some BBQ. I had the brisket with fries and coleslaw. I loved the coleslaw, not too sweet and not too creamy...just RIGHT!!! We sat outside on the patio and enjoyed the music with our meal and a couple of beverages...what a beautiful afternoon!
