Went there with another couple. Ordered (2) onion ring appetizers, very good. Three of us had the burnt end dinner and one had the sliced brisket sandwich. Three Cole slaws, three French fries and one cheesy potato. Burnt ends had exactly the right proportion of fat to lean, very moist and smoked just right. The brisket sandwich was very smoky... More

Their slogan says it all "We Smoke the good stuff!". Their meat is excellent, and their burnt ends are my favorite. This place is where the whole family wants to meet! They host special events, like a paired beer tasting with Boulevard Beer, and it was fabulous!!

Hickory pitt has killer potato skins, there barbecue is good as well. Not as famous as other kc bbq spots, but has a good variety of menu items such as bbq french dip with brisket and smoked turkey wraps, as well as the standards. Good potato casserole.

Asked the waitress for recommendation .. she said burnt ends were what they were know for as well as their beans. So we both ordered the burnt ends dinner. The burnt ends were so dry they were almost non edible and had no flavor. My husband had beans and said they were good. Very sad to find this poor quality... More

We are so sorry to hear you were very unhappy with your burnt ends! They are a crowd favorite. Our Burnt Ends are know for being tender and moist with that traditional KC Hickory Smoke flavor that you can only get from slow smoking meats in our brick pit. I would love to chat with you more about your recent... More

I really think they have the best Burnt Ends in the city, which says a lot. We used to meet my sister and brother-in-law there once a week, now they are gone but we still go fairly regularly. They are a very very good BBQ place which has suffered due to location over the years, as more and more people... More

This is a good place for barbecue. The sliced beef is fantastic and normally their ribs are great, but when we ate their this time the ribs were overcooked. The service is always great!

Great food, great service. Fun, inviting atmosphere. Would have loved to try their mixed drinks but the drive home is too long. Next trip!

There are many bbq places in KC and thisis by far one of the best. The ribs are great and the service is wonderful. We had a friend with that was in a wheel chair and was able to easily get around.
