Great place to eat and take out of town guests. Nic old style building with quirkiness, but also charm.

Great BBQ. Customer service is great. If you are expecting cheap prices this is not the place for you. But BBQ ribs are full and tender. Onion rings are expensive but worth the price.

Great wait staff, perfect food, right down to the carrot cake. It's more pricey than most Kansas City barbecues, but most others don't have people waiting on you. Be prepared to pay more.
