  • Timothy E.By far the best BBQ in Kansas City. Get there early on Saturday for the special Burnt Ends. Have 'em on a sandwich covered in OKJoes amazing sauce and it will literally melt your face right off.

    55555 by Timothy E.


  • Bob S.Somehow, the last bite of a Z-Man is always the best.

    55555 by Bob S.


  • Calvin D.Just start at the top of the menu and work your way through because it's all good.

    55555 by Calvin D.


  • Andrew F.Order the Z-Man with chicken. Best decision ever.

    55555 by Andrew F.


  • Angela C.Perfectly cooked and seasoned meat (and I'm vegetarian). Fries and potato salad are excellent too. Be prepared to wait in line and possibly stand outside while devouring the food - it's that good.

    55555 by Angela C.


  • Ryan P.Get here before 5 or even 4:30 to avoid the crowd

    33333 by Ryan P.

  • Andrew D.Doesn't look like much from the outside, but the food is very good. Watch for long (and pretty slow-moving) lines. Had the ribs and pulled pork. Would go back if in town again.

    55555 by Andrew D.

    55555 by Ilya Phoenix D.

    55555 by Nero H.


  • Kelly D.The line took 40 min but was worth the wait. They know how to get you through the line. Just don't grab a seat until you have your food. There will be one...promise!

    33333 by Kelly D.


  • GeekyExplorersThe zman hit the spot- loved the sauce & the beef was nice & moist.

    55555 by GeekyExplorers


  • Jake S.Although it seems wrong to not order the Z-Man, the Carolina Pulled Pork is close to perfect (FYI: I got both). Toasted bun, hunks of tender meat, great flavor. Grab a gallon of sauce on your way out.

    55555 by Jake S.


  • Ashley S.Best BBQ in KC. Always a long wait but the line moves pretty quick! Buy the spicy BBQ sauce. Goes good with anything!!

    55555 by Ashley S.

    33333 by Erik B.

    55555 by Kevin A.

    33333 by Elli T.

  • Moe D.Good food here. Yummy.

  • LindseyBest BBQ. Ever!

    55555 by Lindsey


  • Albert T.If chicken is what you want, they make the best BBQ chicken which is actually moist - not dry like many others.

    55555 by Albert T.


  • Albert T.Z-man is a popular choice but their ribs are some of the best - fall off the bone and packed with flavor from their addictive seasoning.

    55555 by Albert T.

    55555 by Maegan M.


  • Dana S.Love this place

    55555 by Dana S.

    55555 by Danny A.


  • Local Ruckus KCYou'd be wise to share an order of fries with two or three of your closest friends. They're beastly, and delicious.

    55555 by Local Ruckus KC

    55555 by Jeremiah P.


  • Andy F.Burnt w-Ends-day FTW

    33333 by Andy F.


  • Scott P.If it's your first time here try the chicken strips.

    55555 by Scott P.

    55555 by Jeffrey C.


  • Chris M.Carolina pork sandwich with dirty rice and a Boulevard pilsner. You won't regret it.

    55555 by Chris M.


  • Men's Health MagAfter the meat smokes for 17 hours, the restaurant cuts away the brisket and puts the fatty top back in to sweat for 5 more hours. The result is a sweet, crispy shell wrapped around juicy meat.

    33333 by Men's Health Mag

    55555 by Mike J.
