They are always busy, which shows how good they are. The line moves quick and it is all worthwhile. The brisket is smoked just right and they have original and Night of the Living Dead Cow Town BBQ sauce.

I had the Brisket dinner and enjoyed it along with the Red Beans and Rice. The sauce was delicious. The staff was helpful and courteous. Definitely a good choice for Kansas City style barbecue in the area.

So everyone is in KC is telling me that Joe's is the best BBQ is town. Well it was good for sure but there is 1 place that I liked better. That being said, it was still worth a visit.

Friends from all over the country who visit always ask where is the best in KC? Easy...it's always Joe's of Kansas City...When my son who was raised here comes back to town, he always takes his buddies to Joe's. A friend from Minnesota came to town last month and said, 'I've read about Joe's and want to try a little bit of everything with you.' He tried the ribs, all the sauces, burnt ends, pork, onion rings and beans. He was 'amazed' and asked if they ship? When you live four blocks from Joe's you tend to take it for granted but it may be truly one of the best BBQ joints in the civilized world! Busy all day. Suggest an off hour like 2pm or 430pm. The only thing that isn't debatable is what is the best BBQ sandwich in the known world? It is undoubtedly 'Z-Man' at Joe's. People there talk about Memphis and Carolina BBQ which I have had... good but they need to come to Joe's of Kansas City and find out how it's done!

Anytime we come to Kansas we always eat here at least once. It can get busy, but it moves pretty quick. Well worth the wait.
