I have been here a couple times and both times, it did not disappoint. It is nothing fancy or pretentious. The meats taste truly smoked and barbecued. You get very large portions with good service. The onion straws and mushrooms are good for starters. All...More

Very affordable. Great food selections for the entire family. Kids are picky but they said these were the best chicken strips they ever had. This was our 2nd visit. We will return again.

We miss KC BBQ, living in TX. Wabash is a great example of what KC BBQ is. We did have a long wait as we were with a big group, but it was worth it.. I had a brisket sandwich and fried mushrooms. Yum!

Wabash is a fantastic North Country BBQ. Their smoke gives their meats a fantastic flavor. Burnt Ends and Ribs are top of the list. I always make a stop at Wabash when in Excelsior!

I had heard lots of good things about the BBQ here. I was greatly disappointed. I don't like the sauce already on the meat and my pulled pork was swimming in a very hot spicy sauce. The deep fried mushrooms were very good. My daughter...More

I am not aware of daily specials, I do not eat there anymore because they do not smoke on premises. It is cooked in Excelsior Springs and reheated here.
