Stopped by here yesterday and it looks like the City Market location is closed. Not sure if it is temporary to undergo some renovation or permanent. Their website mentions a "farewell party" Oct. 13 - 15 but no mention of closure.

Breezy open-air spot on one corner of City Market, really convenient to walking the area and visiting their Arabia Museum. (They have seating indoors, too, but it was VERY smoky in there -- good for the food, but overpowering). Service was really friendly and helpful....More

This was good BBQ. Sweet potato fries were very good. Burnt end sandwich was very tender. Not busy on Tuesday night but good food.

With all the barbecue joints from which to choose in Kansas City, why waste your time on average. Forego this one. Wait staff doesn't care, and food isn't memorable. The live music, however, was excellent.

The restaurant is located in a good place. The staff is friendly and the food is quick. The food is not the best but is still got enough. All in all, a fine experience.
