The brisket at Danny Edwards was some of the best I've ever had! Danny Edwards was very knowledgeable in brisket and actually took the time to give us a tutorial about it. The potato salad was also top notch. If you need a brisket fix, Danny Edward's is the place to go!

I had the burnt ends sandwich and it is very flavorful and filling. My husband had the chicken and ribs. Everything was delicious. I had a taste of hubby's chicken and it is the best BBQ chicken I've ever had. Perfectly spiced and moist. Sauces were great, absolutely no complaints and I highly recommend this restaurant. Just remember the hours... More

We visited one weekday for lunch. It was busy but not so busy there weren't any tables or we had to wait very long for our food. The pulled pork was really good! I would also recommend the sweet potato fries, they actually tasted like sweet potatoes. Would return again! Great service and friendly cook and wait staff.

I had the ham sandwich. The ham was cut thick, no fat, just enough barbecue sauce. It was great! Onion rings were also good.

I am on a journey to try as many BBQ places around KC. Today I stopped by Danny Edwards BBQ. Make sure to check the hours, I read they are open 11AM to 3PM. The location was easy to find, and the restaurant itself was busy, but not overwhelming. They have daily specials, but I opted for the ribs. The... More

I had the Burnt end plate sandwich with 2 sides, cheesy corn, and jambalaya. The portion of burnt ends were generous, tasty nice chucks of crispy pieces, the cheesy corn was fantastic, as so was the jambalaya, which had nice size pieces of sausage and chicken. Will definitely be back. Staff and owners are very friendly and ensure you have... More

This place is located next to two great Mexican eateries. I picked here because I had heard it was good and wanted to find out for myself. The brisket was great. It was properly cooked and had just the right amount of fat. It was not dry, as often happens. It was not smothered in sauce. I enjoyed the meal.

I've only eaten at Danny Edward's a handful of times but it never disappoints. Very simple sandwiches and meat platters offer a variety of smoky delights, I've tried burnt ends, pulled pork, and sliced beef sandwiches: all really good. But if you're like me and you love sides, this place is where it's at! Cucumber salad, fresh homegrown tomatoes and... More

We were in Kansas City for one day to see the Royals and stopped here for lunch because it was on aTriple D episode. I won't be able to eat ribs again because I think we had the best ribs on the planet. There was a perfect bark that kept the flavour in, perfectly smoked for fall off the bone... More
