I had the Burnt end plate sandwich with 2 sides, cheesy corn, and jambalaya. The portion of burnt ends were generous, tasty nice chucks of crispy pieces, the cheesy corn was fantastic, as so was the jambalaya, which had nice size pieces of sausage and chicken. Will definitely be back. Staff and owners are very friendly and ensure you have... More

This place is located next to two great Mexican eateries. I picked here because I had heard it was good and wanted to find out for myself. The brisket was great. It was properly cooked and had just the right amount of fat. It was not dry, as often happens. It was not smothered in sauce. I enjoyed the meal.

I've only eaten at Danny Edward's a handful of times but it never disappoints. Very simple sandwiches and meat platters offer a variety of smoky delights, I've tried burnt ends, pulled pork, and sliced beef sandwiches: all really good. But if you're like me and you love sides, this place is where it's at! Cucumber salad, fresh homegrown tomatoes and... More

We were in Kansas City for one day to see the Royals and stopped here for lunch because it was on aTriple D episode. I won't be able to eat ribs again because I think we had the best ribs on the planet. There was a perfect bark that kept the flavour in, perfectly smoked for fall off the bone... More

We stopped by for a Saturday lunch. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The prices were pretty reasonable. I thought the food was good but not great, I've definitely had better bbq. I would still go back again.

Just a few minutes off I-35 and worth every morsel. Highly recommend the Southern Style sandwich with coleslaw in it. The pulled pork and brisket are divine. The tea is dark and strong. Add the cup of homemade pickles to accompany. Food buzz!

I always make a point of stopping at Danny Edwards BBQ when I'm in Kansas City. Their BBQ is top notch. I cannot pass up the BBQ Brisket. The place is small and can get really busy at lunch time--- but it's worth it.

Of all the BBQ joints in KC I had never tried this place before and i don't know how we missed it all these years. The food was great, the service was friendly, and the location is easy. We enjoyed everything we had, brisket, burnt ends, pulled pork, beans, cole slaw, and the fries...all great!!!!

We drove up, excited to try a TripleD location in Kansas City... but alas, it was closed/gone? Nothing on the exterior made us think they were still in business.
