As part of my BBQ splurge through KC I made LCs one of my stops. It certainly checks all the marks of a great 'cue spot: it's in a off the beaten path hood, it's in an ancient building with bars on the windows, and...More

We were here celebrating my wife's birthday. We both like and appreciate good BBQ. This was our first visit to LC's.

We love going here. It's out of the way but worth every lick of your fingers. Go early so to not have a long wait. But if you do have to wait you won't be sorry.

We stopped by here on a road trip from St. Louis to manhattan, Kansas. Ribs were incredible! Messy and fantastic. Fries were crispy. The baked beans were sweet and molassey. Excellent food!!! Worth the drive.

Pork sandwich awesome... BBQ chicken awesome... burnt ends da bomb! Also really good fries. If you are looking for authentic BBQ this is the place. If you want a ritzy fine dining establishment not for you! Definitely a must stop experience in KC!
