A historical favorite of Kansas City. Good service , good food. Parking can be a little scarce but worth your time.

Large portions, small prices, quick service, and tasty BBQ. You will not be disappointed if you make the trip from downtown KCMO to Rosedale Barbecue on the SW Highway. Highly recommend the "Flying Pig" if you are hungry!

It sounds crazy but Rosedale BBQ has the best chili dogs on the planet. The chili is sort of a barbeque flavor served with a plump frank on a long bun. Fries are a MUST at Rosedale, crinkle cut, always hot out of the fryer and among the best in KC. Also try the beef on a bun and order... More

Wife had pulled pork on bread. Bread was excellent and pulled pork was fantastic. I had brisket and sliced pork. Both great, brisket a little dry but still good. Atmosphere is great and clean.

I love trying all the various BBQ joins in the Kansas City area. We finally got around to trying this one, and it did not disappoint. It has been around for quite a while. Everything was good from their sliders to their fries to their sauces. Go hungry!

I go to many of the barbeque restaurants in kansas city, and although i like Rosedale, it's the least of my frequently visited. The people are very nice. The atmosphere is casual, and gets pretty busy, but they manage a large crowd quickly.

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
