My wife and I recently made a great decision trying this restaurant we had never heard of. We were taking a day trip from Kansas City on a beautiful October afternoon. We were looking for a good place for dinner and ended up at Red...Shanty. This place was great. They had a cool indoor dining area and a great outdoor dining room with roof and half walls all decorated in Americana motif. The food was great including the pulled pork and brisket with beans and cole slaw. Red Shanty is definitely worth the trip from the city.More

Unfortunately the service was awful here, the food wasn't much better 🙄 and definitely pricy for the amount you get.

We ate here for the first time July 3, 2020. I wasn't impressed with the food. I will say that the burnt ends were good but the beans tasted like they opened a can of chili beans, heated them up and put them in a...bowl. In my opinion the price was a little steep for what you got. I could have had a good steak, baked potato and salad for what we paid for my meal. Don't think we will be going back.More

As Canadians we don't get too much southern BBQ. This was amazing, our waitress Amber did a great job fronting all our questions. Thanks for a great dinner! The little store is adorable!

Was not impressed with our dinner. I thought it was over priced and all of us complained that our meat was very dry. I did really enjoy the fried green beans. Probably will not be returning.

We were driving through the state and stayed at the Super 8 off of i70, and stumbled on this place via Trip Advisor. It was so great! The potato salad was the best I’ve ever had, and the pulled pork was delicious! To the owner:...you should put flyers in the motels off i70 so other people can find you!More

Just about everything at the Red Shanty is homemade including the ranch dressing on their famous iceberg lettuce wedge. Delicious. They provide multiple meat selection dishes which provide large portions. Their BBQ sauce is also homemade with a regular and extra spicy option.

After a day-long meeting, our large group (~18?) had dinner at the Red Shanty. The staff was friendly and did a good job. I had the Shanty salad with smoked chicken. Very good! A friend let me try their "burnt ends" really great flavor! Pulled...pork looked great, and not a bite left. Give the Red Shanty a try if you are passing by and want something much better than fast food!!More

I really like it when you find some great barbeque at a nice little eatery. I ordered the 1 Lil Pig and that seems like what you get, a little pig. 4 big ribs where the meat comes so easy of the bone. Finger licking...good and the sides were perfect.More
