Q39
Dave O. rated

Trying to recommend the best BBQ in Kansas City is like trying to describe the best beach in Florida or the most scenic view of the Rocky Mountains. It's a very specific and personal choice. For me, enjoying BBQ includes a delicious meal and more. As a matter of perspective, let me say that I get a good feeling - right off the bat - when I walk in and see elbows on the tables and families with well-behaved kids. If you're looking for a fancy and quiet dining experience Q39 isn't your place. If, on the other hand, you want amazing and different BBQ dishes where the atmosphere and staff are pleasant and inviting, your table's waiting. Q39 has an appealing urban-industrial feel coupled with excellent table service (no order counter here). Fellow patrons are an eclectic mix of young, old, upscale, middle-income, families and couples - much like the area Q39 is a part of. My wife and I discovered Q39 in April of '14, just a few days after they opened, and became immediate fans. It obviously wasn't very busy then and the owner, Rob, came by our table to personally recommend his favorite dishes and sides. It felt that comfortable each time we returned during our extended stay in KC. Although we live three hours from Kansas City we recently decided on Q39 for celebrating our son's 21st birthday along with family ranging in age from 4 to 81. Sensing that our BBQ spot might be a bit busier now, a year later, I made reservations. A wise move it turns out - Q39 is no longer an undiscovered gold nugget in KC's stream of BBQ restaurants. It's been found and it's being embraced. I would recommend making reservations for groups of more than two or three. Our entire group had a terrific time and EVERYONE loved the food. Add twelve more "regulars" to Q39. You'd think a fast growing, "up-n-coming" place would quickly loose its original charm. Wrong. One of Rob's award-winning BBQ team members, Shawn took the phone reservation I made two days ahead. I mentioned we opted to make the three hour trek because of our early experiences. When we arrived, my family went in while I parked and then joined them at our table. My wife said that a man named Shawn met them at the door, told her he had taken our reservation and thank her for traveling all the way from Parsons. I was surprised by such a personal experience from a manager but more surprised when Shawn made a point of catching me as I was leaving to again express his appreciation for our business. If the staff of Q39 value the relationship with their customers this highly imagine how much attention they devote to the brisket!

Arthur Bryant's Barbeque

BBQ Must When in KC

Meat is sold by weight in brown butcher's paper. Butcher's paper covered tables. Huge portions for the $. All meat is prepared in large brick smoker ovens behind the counter. Meat orders come with sliced white bread for making sandwiches if you're so inclined. You won't believe how good this BBQ is. Wonderful fries & onion rings. Three different sauces offered. The original Kansas City BBQ institution. The real deal. Funky. Don't miss this place!!!

Smokin Guns BBQ & Catering

Just OK

We stopped in today after finding this place on the Diners Driveins and Dives list. Husband had the Triple D (burnt ends, smoked turkey and brisket). Brisket was dry, ends were chewy but tasty, turkey was moist but not smokey. I had Ribs and Chicken (white meat). Ribs were the best of both of our meals. The chicken was pretty dry and skin was not crisp. We did our DDD for KC MO. Enough said.

Great Sauces! If you like spicy they got it. If you like sweet they got it. They used to give you extra meat when you slipped a couple of bucks under the glass..that is until the Overland Park Yupees invaded.

So good. They are stingy on giving out their delicious sauce. Just buy the pint. Employees can be rude, but thats improved last few times I been back.
