Awesome food, awesome peoples after 5 hours driving the best place to stop by. The only thing they can improve it's by opening one in Florida where we came from. Stop here you will not regret it.

It's not the down home southern BBQ, but it will hold you over with their dishes. Good smoky tender meat. Just not southern if you know what I mean.

Great place, great staff and GREAT pulled pork! The brisket is mighty fine, but the pulled pork with original sauce is what you want! Add some mac and jack (mac and cheese) and you will not have time to take pictures, just eat!

Had the Carolina BBQ sandwich with cole slaw on the side. Just amazing. I tried different sauces on it and never really picked a favorite, but the sandwich itself was just great. Will be back!

This is one of my husband and I's go-to date places. Everything is delicious, but my favorite is the mac and cheese. He loves the Memphis Nachos. The servers are very friendly as well.

I have stopped several times to pick up food to take home and the ribs have been excellent and the potato salad is very good.

The Cox boys know how to smoke meats. Everything I have tried at their restaurants is wonderful. Smoked chicken, pork, beef brisket, you name it, it's great.

Ate my food, it was cold. The girl on the register was unable to show me how much meat was contained in a quarter plus serving (instead explaining, three times, that it was, in fact, a quarter pound). They brought out the food and I picked at my (again, cold) meat. Sauces are blank and flat-tasting. They DID have that... More

I sat at cracker barrel for 20 minutes and could not get service. I came here and got served immediately by friendly people. The pulled pork sandwich was very good and the ice tea. A lady offered me a go cup for my tea which was great. Clean place, great BBQ smells and clean restroom. I'll stop here again.

We ate here during a recent trip to Colorado. The meat was good, but the sauces were runny. Tried all four and didn't really find one that had the true bbq flavor I was after. Also had the sweet potato fries and they were just so so.

Description
When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn't decide which kind of "Q" we loved the most... The sticky messy KC style? The Texas style slow-smoked beef brisket that stands on its own? The Memphis style dry rub pork cuts, or the tangy Carolina style? Well, we just decided to offer it all. Find out more about our 4 kinds of "Q" on our style page. At Cox Brothers, the feeling is casual, but we're not casual about the attention we give to our BBQ. We'd be honored to feed you at our locations or with one of our catering packages. We are proud to offer two locations in the Manhattan and Junction City area. ​ Just give us a call, and we promise, you'll feel right at home... ​ ....At Cox Brothers
