One of the best meals if not the best during my trip. Had pork sandwich with baked cheese corn. Both super tasty. Prices are very good and service amazing. If you will be in Kansas this is a must.

Awesome BBQ and the cornbread was tasty too. A little pricey but definitely worth it. Outdoor seating is great too.

Good, middle of the road introduction to KC bbq. Get all the sides too! Casual dress. Easy to get into usually. Lamb ribs and giant short rib are unique.
