Reviewed January 23, 2013

I eat here almost every trip to Kansas City. The BBQ is good and the prices are good as well. Kansas City BBQ is hard to beat!

“OK BBQ, close to airport”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

If you are looking for BBQ, not in a chain, close to the airport, this is it. Prices are ok and food is ok. Not horrible, not great. Got the pork ribs with slaw and creamed corn and came out quickly. Ribs were a bit tough, but sauce was good. Slaw was above average but corn was meh.

Would go back if I wanted a fix near the airport. Otherwise, would try elsewhere.

“Local BBQ near Hilton and KCI”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Good local BBQ. If you're at any of the airport hotels it's near by. Not a huge menu but very satisfying
