Casual, as BBQ should be. Spectacular burnt ends, and pork and beef. Beans are wonderful, potato salad is top notch.

Went to the one out at the legends, the food is a little bit pricey but you get a lot. After lunch and before dinner time no waiting.

This is the best BBQ I've had in years... No comparison...had a pulled pork sandwich .. It was great... Fries were ok .. It is pricey... Self service... Plenty of parking.. It's near the Legends Mall and Kansas Speedway... It doesn't have the ambience of the original in downtown KC... But the food is great

I don't care what you order....if you're a fan of KC BBQ you will be happy. I've had ribs, pork, brisket, pulled chicken, burnt ends, etc. I'm not a chicken on the bone order guy (feel like I can make it just as good vs most places). Sides are solid. Atmosphere is pretty cool with all the photos on the... More

I understand many at this location may wrinkle their noses at the thought...but there's just something perfect about scooping up pulled Mr. Bryant's pulled pork between a couple slices of plain white bread. The fancy buns kind of threw off the whole thing. I think $42 is excessive for 3 lunch "specials" - although I will admit they didn't hold... More

Our family ordered burnt ends and pulled pork sandwiches. The burnt ends were saucy, and the sauce soaking into the bread was the best part of the sandwich. The pulled pork had good flavor. The sauces were good, too. Fries were tasty. It's not flashy or fancy food, it's very old school barbeque, and that's my favorite kind.

I had heard of people talking about how good Arther Bryant's was for years and had tried to go several times, but for one reason or another had never made it to eat. Finally by chance my son and a friend and I were at the Village West one night and noticed that a new branch had been built there.... More

We were going to eat here after first stopping by Famous Dave’s which had over an hour wait. After attempting to order 3 different items on their menu and they informed us they were out we ended p going somewhere else. Not sure why any place would call itself BBQ when they were out of "pulled pork" "chicken" and ham.... More

We ordered drive thru around 5:30 pm on a Wednesday evening. Not the fasted drive thru experience we have had. The food came out accurately and was hot. We had two sandwich combos and added a side of baked beans. That was enough food for a family of four (young kids) with leftovers. Next time we are in KC we... More
