Always neat to find a surprise along the Interstate. We pulled off at Nevada and saw Buzz's right there. Better than fast food, we said. A great deal better than fast food. Wonderful staff and the food was superb. I had ribs and my wife had the brisket. Both were wonderful. I had something new- smoked cabbage with Parmesan cheese.... More

The first time we went we had the ribs and the stuffed baked potato. Both were really good. The second time we went we both had the stuffed baked potato (I ordered the ribs the first time, my husband ordered the tater.) I didn't order the ribs again because I was trying to eat less calories when we went there... More

Friendly wait staff and cozy atmosphere. Priced right for the value of the meal served. We stopped on a Sunday night for dinner approximately 30 minutes before closing time. My only complaint is that the baked potatoes were not hot at all. The baked potatoes should have had steam rolling out them when cut open. Even once cut open, they... More

Buzz's uses dry rub rather than sauces to bring fabulous flavor to their meats, all very tender and the ribs fall off the bone. Buzz's has several customers that will drive all the way from Kansas City to get their BBQ saying they've never tasted better. Service is excellent and fast. Prices are reasonable.

I was in town for a week and ate here twice. Good news, large portions. However, meats a little smokey and didn't show coloration. The brisket or turkey didn't have a pink outer ring. Pulled pork couldn't tell but didn't have much color. Turkey served shaved, would have preferred thicker cut. Brisket a little dry. Spicy bbq sauce was good.... More

This place had better than expected food. Ribs were pretty average, but the pulled pork is fantastic. And they don't down everything in sauce. Get the onion rings. They're spectacular.

Took a chance on this Restaurant based on reviews. What an awesome place! Our server, Hali was great. Very sweet and attentive. The food was as good as any KC BBQ we have had. And the deep fried corn and onion rings were fabulous. We are in town for a few days. May go back tomorrow!

The food here is great. I love bar-b-q and besides being a little greasy it is wonderful. They actually ran out of chicken, which is what I wanted. Hopefully that will never happen again. Besides that the food is great, service is wonderful and the price is right.

They do it all. BBQ, steak, chicken, fried catfish, baked potatoes, salad. I've never had a bad meal here.

We go here frequently. Great food and service. Good variety of meals. Much more than a barbecue place. Lunch specials
