Was visiting KC and returned to L.C. BBQ on Blue Pkwy again. I have been there several times while visiting and found it was still my favorite KC barbecue restaurant. Their flavor is unique and original, we really enjoy L.C.'s

LCs is always the best. The aroma alone will make your mouth water. The pork is excellent and the ribs are fabulous. Big portions. Wish the place was bigger. Sometimes there is no seating, but for BBQ like this, I will eat in my car!

Took an organized BBQ tour (4 different famous restaurants) and this had the Best BBQ in KC hands down. They have order/pick-up service, too.

You might pass this place by if you happen to drive by it but if you do you would be missing some great Kansas City BBQ. We had a mix platter with a little bit of everything. Ribs, brisket, turkey fries, beans and it was all very good.

Had to try some barbecue while in Kansas City. This place was recommended to me by the desk clerk at my hotel and I wasn't disappointed! I arrived to find a bit of a crowd which told me it must be a good choice to ease my hunger pains. I ordered the short-end and a side of red beans and... More

This was our favorite joint out of the three barbecue eating places we visited and ate on our recent visit to Kansas City. We ate BBQ every single day there and wish we had more time to enjoy more. Between the four of us and our dog daughters the BBQ was the highlight of our visit.

The burnt tips are, hands down, one of the most incredible taste sensations I've ever experienced. My mouth is watering just typing this review. Smoke billows out the door, and you may leave smelling like you've been manning a pit for a few hours, but the quality, and quantity of the food is really difficult to overstate.
