I had the ribs and they were prepared perfectly. The place is clean. It is a place where you walk in, place your order, walk to the end of the counter and pay for it. Not a sit-down and order place.

Had dinner here on 9/19/17. We waited in line for 15 minutes to place our order, which wouldn't be a big deal had the food been better. Brisket was dry. Need I say more?

Always a line....but worth the wait. Had the z-man sandwich--thin sliced brisket was great with great flavor. Fries were perfectly cooked. Love the dirty rice! Don't let the line scare you off--it moves quickly and you will be able to find a table as the...More

Tries Joe's today, chopped brisket has a good smoked favor, fries are pretty good, better than most, sauce is good, a little spicy but good.

Busy, especially on weekends. Lines can be out the door. It has a bustling atmosphere in a strip center. Good lunch crowd. Takeout is quicker.

We got there at 8:30 on a Saturday and hoped it would be after the rush. It was still a half hour wait but I am reluctant to say "Let's go some place lousy so we don't have to wait". People in line were happy...More

Once again: Incredible! There is a reason that every other BBQ joint in town tries to replicate the Z-Man brisket sandwich. That is because it is so wonderful. However KC Joe's is not only the original, it is also the best.

Great food and atmosphere. Love this place. My husband loves the Z-man. It draws a big crowd but the wait is worth it and the wait isn't very long usually. You can also call in orders and it's nice that they have a separate line...More
