As a BBQ judge, I'm picky about this cuisine. Yes, I said it: cuisine. John is an 80+ year old pot master from KC. This is an old fashioned joint. Family owned and operated. Friendly. The pulled pork is best but the brisket is good, too.

I live close by and was hoping I would be a frequent visitor to this place....turns out, there's a reason the restaurant was empty when I walked-in. Had the combo plate - lot's of fat, meat was tasty as meat with a lot of fat goes, but it wasn't smoked - seemed like the brisket, pull-pork & ribs were cooked... More

This is the best bbq around. Just wish they were open more than 3 days a week. The ribs are the bomb

My favorite place for "REAL" BBQ. Ribs and Brisket are incredible. I love the slaw, potato salad, and the key lime pudding. It was really great.

Thank bcbmom
