A convenient location near Cabela's. A very good selection of BBQ dishes and six sauces to choose from. The prices are reasonable and the service is very good. Definitely worth a visit.

I've eaten here about 5 times and some days it's awesome and other days it's just ok. Prices are high for the amount of food you get, but the food is pretty good on some days and just not consistent on others. My favorite is...More

When in Kansas City, have barbecue, right? This is a nationwide chain, so not "Kansas City" BBQ, per se, but it is wonderful just the same! Never had it before and so glad we stopped in! One thing that was especially nice was the small...More
