The sides were phenomenal. I had the Pig Pen, which had fried onions and fried jalapenos on it with a side of fried pickles. Man, those fried veggies were awesome! The idea of my sandwich was great - pulled pork with pepperjack and green and...More

Rosedale was recommended by a guy I met in Texarkana, TX. He was spot on about the ribs. Go on Monday for the slab special. What a bargain!

We went for BBQ with friends from out of town. Two had never been to KC. They followed my lead for the rib dinner and they were all impressed. Rosedale isn't the prettiest place in town, and the presentation of the food isn't pretentious. It...More

Hadn't been to Rosedale Barbecue in years--went there today at the suggestion of a friend. Had planned to have chicken (which I remembered to be delicious) but decided on the long rib dinner at the last minute. This is a traditional barbecue joint--not some yuppified,...More

Rosedale Barbecue is a great place to try if you are looking for a new BBQ place. I like the old style atmosphere of this restaurant and the friendly/quick service. I ordered the Rib Dinner and it was soooo good! The ribs were tender and...More
