“Pleasant surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2014 via mobile

We were traveling south from Kansas city and decided we were ready for supper and saw buzz's near the exit I had pork ribs that did nearly fall off the bone. My daughter had s nice looking cheeseburger. Baked beans were good. Waitress was very nice. Bathrooms were clean but not great (my only mild criticism)

“Ate twice in one week and the service was TERRIBLE both times...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

The food at Buzz's is pretty decent, albeit overpriced. The service, however, is among the worst I've ever experienced. Waited several minutes after sitting down before we got menus, waited several more minutes before our drink order was taken, waited forever for the food, and then the server didn't come around even ONE time while we ate to check on us. We almost got up and went looking for a manager because we couldn't even get the bill. To top it all off, the server was quite rude. I likely will never be back because of the poor service, despite the fact that I periodically stay in the hotel just 50 yards away...

“Mixed review”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

We love BBQ and decided to stop by Buzz's BBQ and give it a try. We're from the Kansas City area and are pretty spoiled with good BBQ. The brisket sandwich was just okay. It wasn't overly tender or fresh tasting. I tried the loaded potato and it was very good and filling. It was a nicely cooked potato with all kinds of toppings including chopped brisket. I had never had one like it and it was very good. The service was very good. It wasn't busy and we were seated shortly after we arrived. Our server was new but she was very pleasant, got our drinks and order quickly. She came around several times to see if we needed anything else.

“Improving”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014 via mobile

Buzz's has definitely improved over the last several months. We had sworn off this restaurant a couple of years ago. We still have some issues. We don't go often primarily because they are way over priced. Service is hit and miss. We've had excellent service and we've almost got up and walked out because no one came to our table. They do have a really good philly steak and cheese sandwich. So if you like a good philly it's worth a try. If you want steak or BBQ, you might want to keep looking.
