My wife said the pulled pork was quite good, I enjoyed the house salad, but the brisket was only average. Don't miss the homemade potato chips!

Ordered a take-out salad- for dinner. Had it topped with some pulled chicken bar-b-que......chicken was good but greens were not as fresh as they could've been. But service was good and fair price.

This is one of my favorite places to eat. I prefer the brisket or burnt ends. The chickens is also good. While I like the Mac n Cheese, potato salad and slaw but the homemade chips are amazing I prefer the cajan season. Their hot BBQ sauce is one of my all time favorites and have bought a bottle on...

Since I moved to Missouri I have tried lunches and dinners at the most incredible locations. Most often at grocery stores (say what!), but this one surprised the heck out of my husband and I; the eatery is inside a gas station! We initially thought that we would just get snacks, as there was a bad storm coming in and... More

We ordered 3 pork steak dinners and a brisket dinner. The brisket dinner was good, but the pork steaks were tough as shoe leather. They were dried out and tough. The dry rub was overpowering. I like a good dry rub, but this was too much. It was very spicy for pork steaks. Their baked beans were excellent. The coleslaw... More

We stopped at the Jefferson City location because I read great reviews. We walked in the restaurant and started reading the menu. There was a lady waiting for her to go order. I had asked her if she had eaten here before. She smiled and said yes. I asked her what she liked. She smiled and said, "Everything"! We ordered... More

So - thinking outside the box, a wonderful family had Lutz's bring in a roasted pig for a family reunion. It was spectacular - so keep this in mind if you are having an event where you want to make a big splash. Hubby and I headed down to Lutz's in Jeff City for some more about a week later.... More

The atmosphere is just a bit better than a fast food or convenience store, but the barbecue is delicious.
