After watching Anthony Bourdain and reading all the great reviews and in search of our first Kansas City barbecue experience, I wanted to like this place so much. The locale, the building, the history - there is nothing on the surface not to like. Our past barbecue experience is Texas barbecue so this was a step out of the norm... More

This place was located a little out of the way, but overall it was tasty. I gave it an Average score because I didn't like their Sauce and that's a big part of BBQ for me. My husband got a BBQ Combo for $11, and I had a Pulled Pork Sandwich and side of potato salad for about $8. They... More

Traveled to KC for a family event. Everyone kept telling me how great this place is. It's not as good as I had anticipated. Had the burnt ends some were melt in your mouth others I needed a knife for. The French fries were almost to crispy and were ok. Mom in law said the pulled pork was great. Will... More

We dropped by and ordered for take out. Service was fast and friendly with minimal wait for our food. Brisket is exceptional. 1/2 chicken was very good as were the burnt ends. Sauce is quite tasty. We ordered cheesy potatoes and spicy baked beans as sides. Cheesy potatoes were new to me. I thought they tasted a little like homemade... More

Been coming here since I was a little kid. I can come here on a week night her a sandwich a side and a drink and be out of there in 15 minutes. There's another barbeque place near by where you can wait an hour. The food here is really good. I'll take quality and convince any day over popularity.

Not the trendy go to place. This is an established, well respected, loved by many, go to BBQ joint. Great ribs, excellent pork, brisket, ham, chicken. Fries are awesome. Baked beans tasty, slaw excellent. Sauce is incredible. Large lunch crowds attest to the excellence of this place. Smells like heaven when you pull up to the location.

We were looking for Kansas City barbeque and found a good solution here. East of the Ikea store, on way back to MO side. Open later than some of the restaurants. Ribs are my go-to to try at barbeque places. They were sauced and tender. We teased some of our party for ordering chicken tenders here, but I tried one... More

One of the best in Kansas City. Great Ribs, Brisket and Burnt ends. Fried Green Tomatoes are good, and they have a very nice beer selection. You can't go wrong. Only reason I give them four instead of five stars...frozen fries.

Years ago I worked close to Rosedale BBQ and went there regularly and always liked it. Then I moved away and missed it. About 15 years ago I drove through the area and stopped and it was still good. Then last week I was in the area again and NO surprise it was still very good. Try it and you... More
