Your stomach starts grumbling upon entry. Must haves: rib tips, beans, more beans, fried cauliflower, Friday $5 Long Island ice tea, and the prime ribs. Eat early like all other BBQ places, but stay late for the drinks. Bartenders are top notch!

Among the best in KC. Great burnt ends and cheesy corn. A co worker still raves about the beef ribs that he orders whenever he's in town.

We went over on a Friday night early fortunately because the longer we were there the busier they got. Especially after the firemen showed up. Food is always very good and the service is too. They take care of business. Of course we had BBQ. I had pulled pork and my partner had baby back ribs. I also get the... More

The brisket and sausage here are fabulous - tender, tasty, well-seasoned, and juicy,. Our entire meal was great. My husband had the ribs, which were also perfectly cooked. The side dishes were very good, especially the macaroni & cheese. Be aware of the high sales tax rates in this area.

Great food in a less busy atmosphere. Always many people there but usually a good place to go for great food and conversation.

We were seated at a table with food all over the floor from kids that were seated there before us, the water not filtered-tasted awful, and the waitress tells me I cannot have pulled pork and ribs just one meat so I have to read the menu description of what the "combo" meal consists of to her. But the thing... More

The menu offers a variety of options and combos. I like a pulled pork sandwich combo they offer. The interior was redone in the last few years and it looks nice inside as well as provides comfortable booths. Also has sections of tables. The sauces are yummy!
