Went in for an early dinner. Place was dead. Chose the two meat combo, pork ribs and pulled pork with fries. Ribs were a little dry and almost no rub flavor. Pork was already sauced, to the point that it masked the flavor of the meat. The sauce was good, but I like being able to taste the meat and... More

Be careful what you order because you will be inundated with meat and that's not a bad thing, just plan accordingly. The burnt ends were delicious and meaty but the sausage was really disappointing, more of a summer sausage than a BBQ sausage.

Stopped here for supper with family..They didn't give a good first impression as the staff was to busy talking about football to pay attention to us. I asked for fries with my combo and I didn't get them. The food I did get was rudely handed to me by man behind the counter. The taste of the food was just... More

First off, we were mere seconds from leaving because the staff was too busy talking and not helping customers. Now the food. I love bbq, but you can tell this is fast food bbq. I had the burnt ends which were fatty, but sadly were the best part of the meal. The other meat i had was the sliced beef,... More

We arrived on a Saturday around 1:30 and there was a fairly long line. This was once a mom & pop restaurant that is now a chain. It has a cafeteria style service and dinning. Chicken, pork & beef BBQ are offered along with home style fries, onion rings & slaw. There are 3 mid west style sauces to choose... More

I was here last year on business, came back this year with family on vacation and made it a point to go eat here. Food is excellent. Classic good old fashion barbecue. Lots of choices for everybody in the family.

It was ok, but so many better BBQ choices in Kansas City. Fast food atmosphere, and fast food taste. Many better choices.

We always get a big take out meal from Arthur Bryant's barbecue at the Legends when we visit KC. We let them know our allergens and they make sure we stay safe. Very good food.

This restaurant is famous for a reason. Year after year is provides great food at a good price. Beef and burnt ends are what this city is known for, and you can't go wrong with either one, or both, here. When eating BBQ, about 30% of the experience is the sauce. I was never a fan of their Original, but... More
