My wife and I set out for KC to eat some ribs, this place came in number 2 but was very close to 1. The St. Louis Ribs were great, and this place is DOG FRIENDLY! Not many of those in KC. Highly recommend this...More

Horseradish coleslaw was terrific - love the bite. Cheesy creamed corn was sublime. Meat cooked to perfection with great flavor (tried brisket sandwich and baby back ribs). Nice sitting out on patio enjoying the day and some great 'q'!

I love the smoked salmon from Woodward. I served it at a wedding brunch and have it when company comes. Delicious! Also the chili is very tasty.

Woodyard BBQ is situated in an old house in an old working woodyard. There is an awesome outdoor brick patio with our brick smoker adjacent. This is combined with a cool wooden deck, an inside room with AC and heat and our BRAND new beer garden. This place is the real deal. Come say hi!
