Great BBQ. I could eat at Smokehouse 2 or 3 times a week. The prime beef short ribs are awesome and the BBQ beans are a must try.

The food is very good. The ribs melt in your mouth. The beans are to die for. Very worth the money and lots of food to take home as well.

The food here is absolutely amazing. I have been here a couple times. Each time is better than before. Their cheesy corn, burnt ends, and steamed veggies are absolutely amazing. Their custom alcoholic drinks are amazing. I highly recommend this to everyone. Definitely recommend the Apple Pie Bourbon.

Among the best in KC. Great burnt ends and cheesy corn. A co worker still raves about the beef ribs that he orders whenever he's in town.

The brisket and sausage here are fabulous - tender, tasty, well-seasoned, and juicy,. Our entire meal was great. My husband had the ribs, which were also perfectly cooked. The side dishes were very good, especially the macaroni & cheese. Be aware of the high sales tax rates in this area.

Great food in a less busy atmosphere. Always many people there but usually a good place to go for great food and conversation.
