Joes is across the street from the high rent district of Town Center Plaza, in the same shopping center with the Hen House. It has very good BBQ. The ordering process is a bit like that of its competitor Gates, in that you walk in,...More

Went there for a late Saturday lunch. We ordered pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. Nothing special about any of them. Sides were over spiced. They are trying to do too much. Too many sides. I would not make a special trip to eat here.

Each time I visit KC I MUST eat at Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que. I estimate I've had over 10 meals over the years and each time the meal and experience is terrific. I highly recommend.

If you are in KC, you must grab a bite at Joe's BBQ. There just isn't better BBQ in KC. I usually get either the brisket or Carolina sandwich. Share the fries, they are doused in seasoned spices and are easily shared by two adults....More

I was a little intimidated getting there at lunchtime with a line out the door, but the line moved quickly. Order at the counter; by the time you get to the cashier, your food is there. Plenty of available tables. I had the pulled pork...More
