  • THE best bbq in Kansas City, try the turkey on bun, it's perfectly smoked.
  • Its all about the Mix plate!!!!
  • It is tradition to be greeted by a prompt, "Hi, May I help you?" Our tip: Don't be pressured; take your time and order what you want!
  • How much fo one rib?
  • Very intimidating. Like the soup nazi of BBQ. But the food is good.
  • Made our South's Best List! Try the stellar burnt ends and ribs, especially when spiked with spoonfuls of cumin-laced, almost marinara-like sauce.
  • Order a Mixed Plate and a side of beans.
  • MANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN oh MANNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN the food was at good expectations!!!!! Owww!
  • mixed plate every time
  • Employees are rude.
  • Four bone plate best bang for buck 4 bones ham and beef plus 2 sides 23.43 feeds family of three
  • i love that burnt end....always a good meal
  • Good ribs and sauce.
  • "Hi, may I help you," is another great KC tradition. Tasty ribs and LOVE the beans. Turkey sandwich also good. Gates is a MUST on a KC BBQ tour.
  • Worst service I have ever had. They are rude from the time you walk in the door to the time you leave. I felt rushed like I was holding them back from a smoke break or something. Do not come here.
  • Sweet ambiance, with belt-fed fans circulate the delicious scent of slow roasted brisket and mutton. Get the triple-decker of beef or pork. They also serve the world's best potato salad.
  • From the time a server yells, "HI MAY I HELP YOU?!" to the second you finish your sammich, Gates is an experience. An essential pit stop on a KC barbecue tour.
  • Gates is the best ever!!!!!
  • Take home some of the bbq sauce. Its awesome.
  • The ladies yell at you. For better food and a better time, try Oklahoma Joe's.
