There's a long line inside this fluorescent-lit, linoleum-floored barbecue joint, and you better know what you want when you get up to that glass window — or be able to figure it out fast — 'cause it's hot back there and they don't suffer fools lightly. But when you get that plate full of meat with those soft, square slices of white bread and sit down with a bottle of sauce and dig in, it's pretty much one of those meals you're always going to remember.  — Maryse Chevriere, 2/18/2011


  • Best BBQ in the Midwest!
  • While the Original sauce is famous, don't leave without trying the Rich and Spicy.
  • Can't go wrong with ribs.:-)
  • Arthur Bryants is delicious... all 3 sauces are great, but the original is still a favorite, no matter where I travel. The new location is awesome and they have great people behind the counter!
  • Order the meat by the pound.
  • Split the fries with someone. As big as the sandwiches are...
  • Beef brisket, original sauce. Totally the best BBQ in KC.
  • Do a shot of "Original Sauce" - just like the President did !
  • Use the Original Sauce for best flavor.
  • If you like BBQ, you need to try this place!
  • This is the best Barbeque in Kansas or Missouri!!!
  • Burnt ends were pretty decent.
  • Amazing that this location is nothing at all like the original. The original is much better, but this one is cleaner and not as crowded. Went President's Day at about 8Pm, were out of 1/2 the menu.
  • Best BBQ BEEF.
  • First time I had burnt end. Loved!
  • Not as good as the original location
  • 1/2 pound is already a lot of meat. Be wary of going higher than this.
  • Burnt ends are an absolute must.
  • It is super BIG portions of burnt ends and bread!! Share with somebody!!
  • The burnt ends are delicious!
