As a proud Kansas Citian, I consider it my duty to know a little, and to have tried, all of our wonderful BBQ joints. LC's has been in my top five for as long as I can remember. In fact, it was the L.C.s was the first place I ever took my first-born son, a little over 11 years ago.... More

This is one of my favorite KC BBQ joints. Can literally see and smell the smoke a few blocks away. It is small, gritty, smoky, and probably not good for your health. All of this is what makes it so awesome. I love standing in line watching them open the smoker with just piles of meat cooking. Typically order a... More

The food was absolutely AMAZING! My wife and I came in for our first time on the very busy rainy Good Friday afternoon. When I say the staff had the line moving fast it was great! The young lady that took our order and rang us up was so friendly and very helpful. She knew the menu front to back... More

LC's exactly the kind of place I think of when imagining an old school BBQ joint. The burnt ends, baked beans, and fries were all amazing, among the best I have ever had. The sauce was top notch. The staff was friendly and engaging. Can't go wrong here for some good BBQ.

Don't be fooled by the drab building. If you're looking for upscale decor then you're at the wrong place. In my mind, bbq shouldn't be eaten at a place with cloth napkins. L.C's is all about the food. First off, the young lady behind the counter had a big smile and a good attitude. My ham sandwich was a double... More

Great experience--authentic one room restaurant permeated with a mouth-watering smokey, saucy fog of deliciousness. Do not miss it!

I had a late lunch here with a co worker today. The burnt ends and the onion rings were really good. It's more of a take out vs a eat in place, the inside is a bit old and run down

This is how traditional Kansas City BBQ works - the place is usually some oddball out of the wall hole in the wall and the food is outstanding. They pull the meat out of the gigantic smoker/cooker which sits directly behind the counter and put it on your plate. I went for the two meat combo. It was double decker... More

I've traveled through Kansas City, MO and was told about this Mom n Pop BBQ place by friends so I thought I'd try it out. It's not far off of Interstate 70 and man was it worth the few additional minutes off the highway. Dial in your GPS to find this place because the food here is fantastic and the... More

Was visiting KC and returned to L.C. BBQ on Blue Pkwy again. I have been there several times while visiting and found it was still my favorite KC barbecue restaurant. Their flavor is unique and original, we really enjoy L.C.'s
