Each time I visit KC I MUST eat at Joe's Kansas City Bar-B-Que. I estimate I've had over 10 meals over the years and each time the meal and experience is terrific. I highly recommend.

If you want to taste the best of Kansas City BBQ, this is the place. Brisket, ribs, pulled pork... it's all great. For a real treat, try the burnt ends (only available on Wednesdays).

I visited Joe's yesterday for dinner. A friend of mine, from Kansas City, told me that if I have one just one evening to get BBQ in KC, it should be Joe's (specifically this location). I have visited and reviewed many BBQ joints, and this...More
