Depending on which meats you order, the quality at Woodyard can be hit or miss. We tried their ribs (delicious), pull pork (some of the worst I've ever eaten), brisket (dried out and flavorless), burnt ends (good), and sausage (OK). The quality should be more...More

We have been here twice and loved it both times. Try the corn! The Burnt End buster, corn bread, hot wings, cole slaw, all delish! Love sitting outside by the smoker. Warning...you will smell like it when you leave.

During a recent trip, I knew I "must" have BBQ while in Kansas City. Woodyard BBQ had great reviews, so I gave it a try and am SO happy I did!! It's a very small place, family run, but plenty of parking in the back....More

Stopped for lunch on a Sunday afternoon. Lots of outdoor seating. Large smoker out front so could relax, enjoy a couple of beers, and watch the barbecue get smoked. The ribs are the highlight for me, smoked perfectly and required no sauce. The bunt ends...More

Woodyard BBQ is situated in an old house in an old working woodyard. There is an awesome outdoor brick patio with our brick smoker adjacent. This is combined with a cool wooden deck, an inside room with AC and heat and our BRAND new beer garden. This place is the real deal. Come say hi!
