After visiting and experiencing a few BBQ places in Kansas City over the last couple weeks, I am reluctant to give a rating of "poor" to Arthur Bryant's. First the good. The history of the place is great. Presidential visits and famous celebrities have visited...More

This was my first encounter with AB's. Had heard for years how good it was and felt let down by all the hype. I had burnt ends, turkey and sausage. The burnt ends were drenched in sauce, which I'd prefer to eat them without to...More

Stopped at the Main Street location for lunch. Had the burnt ends sandwich and fries. Meat was pretty loose. Lots of small bits. Ok but nothing to go back for. Fries were the best part in my opinion so that's sad.

I rate this well because my family and friends like the more bitter barbeque. I like sweet bbq more so its not my favorite but it is for others.

Picked this up Togo and it did not disappoint. Love all their sauces, especially the spicy. Their brisket is juicy and great smoke taste. Love how everything comes with sliced pickles. One of my fav BBQ places in KC

This was our first time to this location. As usual, there was plenty of food to go around. I like the different BBQ sauces they have on each table.

This is an old established BBQ place. If you come to KC you really should try it, just for the sake of saying you did it. It's not the same if you don't go to the downtown location. However, it's not my favorite. They have...More

The burnt ends are the best ever! I like the spicy sauce and a cold beer, nothing better. Love the server guys. Always happy and very generous with the portions. You will see everything from men in suits to raggy old jeans.
