We got lost in Warrensburg trying to find Bill Sharp's, and a couple of kids at CMSU gave us directions to Perry Foster's. It looks like a closed junkyard office, with dark windows and a makeshift sign and a car or two in the lot. We weren't sure the front door was the front door. We told each other to be brave, walked inside, and the aroma of bar-b-que was heavenly.

The interior is discouraging. Water stains on the ceiling, old tables and chairs, rough flooring, and a very depressed waiter. There was no A rating card on the window from the board of health. Still, we ordered sandwiches and fries to go. It took 30 minutes to get our order out. Other couples who had taken seats at the tables never did get served while we stood and waited. What were they doing in the kitchen?

The sandwiches were so huge we could only eat half. The fries were fantastic -- both sweet potato fries and regular fries. The turkey and beef were smokey and very good, but there was no bar-b-que sauce on the meat. Interesting and different.

Now, other people online have alleged that this restaurant has had problems in the past with the board of health. But they don't describe the problems. The only thing I didn't like was the slow service. I'd go back.

Perry Foster's is outstanding. Friendly service, truly outstanding food. Excellent ham, great BBQ sauce. The sweet potato fries have a little brown sugar on them, and it makes all the difference.
As for the atmosphere...this place has it. Enjoy.

Perry Foster's is a run down restaurant on the south side of Warrensburg. It has a good following of people who love its BBQ and fair pricing for BBQ.

I have ate Perry Foster's several times and it is the best BBQ in the state of MO in my opinion. However, the restaurant is in very poor condition and the customer service is practically nonexistent. Once again, I emphasize that this is great BBQ but is in a VERY rundown restaurant .
