Had to try some barbecue while in Kansas City. This place was recommended to me by the desk clerk at my hotel and I wasn't disappointed! I arrived to find a bit of a crowd which told me it must be a good choice to ease my hunger pains. I ordered the short-end and a side of red beans and... More

This was our favorite joint out of the three barbecue eating places we visited and ate on our recent visit to Kansas City. We ate BBQ every single day there and wish we had more time to enjoy more. Between the four of us and our dog daughters the BBQ was the highlight of our visit.

Please go somewhere else. I peeked in the kitchen. Wow. Gross. Every thing inside is sticky. I ordered a mixed plate. Ribs and burnt ends and a drink $23! What! MLpapa gotta go. So I sit down. Sticky stuff everywhere. Lc was slouching over a old chair looking at the tube. He looked sticky. Food was called. I cleared the... More

The burnt tips are, hands down, one of the most incredible taste sensations I've ever experienced. My mouth is watering just typing this review. Smoke billows out the door, and you may leave smelling like you've been manning a pit for a few hours, but the quality, and quantity of the food is really difficult to overstate.

Burnt ends were amazing! Fries were great! The baked beans had burnt ends in them - I am not a beans person but my husband said they were good. The only problem I had was seating was very tight. I don't enjoy standing and trying to eat. That is almost part of the charm though - almost... Even with the... More

ok, so i stopped by on the way home and got a slab of ribs and a beef sandwich. I went from recommendation of some guys at the auto garage. It's a small hole in the wall. The workers behind the counters were no nonsense, not even a smile, but i could live with that. Then the owner comes in... More

Not ashamed to admit I will drive 4 hours JUST to get burnt ends!! Don't go to KC and miss this place. Admittedly the location may not appeal to all but the food is amazing and more than makes up for it!! Get the beef burnt ends...the most Delicious! Anywhere!!

The BBQ was wonderful! We went later in the evening and this hole in the wall place had a continuous stream of people coming in (always had a line). The parking is limited and the building is nothing special but the employees are fun and the food is wonderful. Great experience and we are still enjoying the leftovers!

Always wanted to hit LC's when in KCMO and had the chance to for lunch on a Monday. It's small, not much parking and not the most orderly around the building. In short, it's a BBQ joint - a true hole in the wall no-frills joint. There's maybe seating for 20, but the tables clear out quickly. The menu is... More
