I love this location for dine in and carry out. Everything is consistent and always good. The building is old and a little cramped but I think that adds to the feel.

Service was fair. Food used to be great there but not anymore. I swear that place hasn'T been dusted for years and years. There are lots of knick knacks used for decorations and they are very very dirty and dusty.The tabletop was sticky,the whole place needs a good gallon of bleach and a firemens hose.

This feels like a very authentic BBQ place, very rustic and old fashioned. The BBQ is great, I went for a sampler that included a variety of meats and sides. The pork ribs were great, the burnt ends were phenomenal, the prime ribs were a bit dry, but the cheesy corn was fantastic. Not exactly haute cuisine but great, simple,... More

Great place for dates. Food is pretty good! Lots of cozy nooks and crannies to enjoy your company. Some different items on the menu than other bbq places. The cheesy corn rocks!

This is KC barbecue at its best. Yes the inside is not as fancy as the plaza or freight house locations, but the cozy corners and long time waitresses have their own stories. This is the location that I first learned of the Prime Ribs- Oh my.

We have been going here for 26 years and the food is consistently great. We went there for our 46th anniversary dinner and I was or rather we both were a little bit disappointed. True, we haven't been there in about 5 or 6 months, but it has really changed. The menu was only two pages and it was hard... More

Good food and service. Love the BBQ variety and baked beans and cheesy corn. Fried mushrooms and onion rings are appetizers to die for. Love the BBQ sauce on tender meat.

Service is with a smile and one on one attention every time. They have in my opinion the best BQ side dishes in all of KC. I am a big fan of ribs, Jackstack ribs are hit and miss but I have never had any ribs from here that I wouldn't eat. The Poor Russ is my favorite sandwich. Down... More
