Went with a few friends. Pretty much everything we ate was delicious! Ribs, pulled pork, BBQ smoked chicken, mac and cheese, potato salad, cornbread, and desserts were all fantastic! The broccoli was good, but a little different - some of us loved it and some...More

Service was great, food was pretty good, sauces were amazing. Brisket, pulled pork and ribs were 8/10 (and I've got high standards) but the turkey sausage wasn't good in my opinion. Some of my favourites BBQ sauces I've ever had. I bought a couple bottles...More

This was our second time here but first time for brunch. We were equally pleased this time and enjoyed our meal. Going at the earlier hour made it more pleasant for visiting with friends.

A group of four ordered two sides and the meat platter - we couldn't finish all of our meat! The restaurant has a great atmosphere and is off the touristy stretch if you are visiting the city. Excellent meal - highly recommend!

Lived up to reviews. Ordered brisket, pulled pork, and ribs to share. All were very good with brisket being some of best we have had even over our favorite in Kansas City. Fries were spiced up but not our favorite. Good beers on tap. Had...More

Loved the atmosphere of Bar Q! It's not in every restaurant that you are provided with your own BBQ sauce brush and bucket of cajun popcorn to complement your meal. I came with a larger group of 8 people and the service was great. Most...More
