I was visiting family in KC and we got takeout from Smokehouse. Wow! The burnt ends are amazing! The ones we had are those against which all others are measured. I will definitely be coming here and repeating this meal every time I'm in KC.
We ordered a lot of sides for the family and everything was good. The meat was by far the star, but the sides were all great compliments to the meat.
On my way through Kansas City and found this gem. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and wouldn't hesitate to stop in again!
Ordered take out of three delicious Gladstoner sandwiches, beans, slaw and fries. Sandwiches were brisket and pork combos and they were filled with meaty goodness. Best bbq beans North of the River!
This is my go to place for BBQ. I always get the Crispy (burnt ends sandwich) (extra bbq sauce) I love the food and they have amazing BBQ sauce! I highly recommend this place for everyone! Casual and kid friendly!
I can't say enough good things about this place. We pulled up at 9:00 PM on a Wednesday night after driving 9 hours from Denver & we were treated SO nicely. We were the only people in the restaurant (traipsing in half an hour before they closed) but the staff made us feel like they'd like nothing better than to serve us. Our waiter in particular was so genuinely interested in us & how we were doing. The food arrived in minutes. I had a burnt ends sandwich & my husband had a pulled pork sandwich. Both were excellent. The fries were crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. And THE BEANS. Those are to DIE for. The staff even made a whole new batch for us because the old batch had been under the heater for a while & they wanted us to really enjoy one of their signature dishes. I'm so impressed. This place is worth the stop for some excellent barbecue & equally excellent service.
I have to tell Ya, I grew up in KC, live in Florida now, but my brother brought me here after my plane trip and those juicy Burnt Ends are the Best I've ever had, Ribs are Perfect & the potato salad was Delish, have a great lunch or dinner!! I know you all, I'll be hitting this place on my way back to Florida.
Loved, loved it! They were very accommodating for a group of 12 and was amazingly great! Great in all areas. Clean, service rocked and food was great! Well worth it!
First time here, the smoked wings were delicious and the Cajun butter sauce is to die for! Hot yet very flavorful! It's so good that I didn't have the BBQ and chose grilled chicken tender slathered in that sauce. Rick, the manager was very helpful making the experience great!
We had the best service by Jennifer our waitress. She took really good care of my family when we were there celebrating my brothers birthday. The rest of the staff were very accommodating and the food was so delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant to all of my family and friends!

LOVE everything about this place! By far my favorite bbq restaurant, and an all-around favorite too! Best bbq beans, bbq flavor, ham cooked as no other, just the BEST!
Great BBQ. I could eat at Smokehouse 2 or 3 times a week. The prime beef short ribs are awesome and the BBQ beans are a must try.
As I was staying at a hotel not too far from Zona Rosa, we were trying to decide who we would order from for some good BBQ. Well after checking reviews on both Google and Yelp, we decided on Smokehouse BBQ. When we went to pick up our order, the staff was very nice to us, so much love for the customer service.
We ordered the brisket and burnt ends; and also had some cheesy corn and fries. Both meats were juicy, flavorful, and even better with their sauce. The cheesy corn was awesome!! Next time we come to KC, we're definitely going to come in and enjoy a sit-down lunch. Can't wait to taste more of their food!!
Have been dining there for years. Never a bad experience. Well kept establishment. Clean with excellent service and tasty barbecue. Love the burnt ends and fried mushrooms.
As always my go to place when the urge for BBQ hits me. Our waiter Louis was extremely helpful. Offered suggestions. Very attentive even though he was also serving a large party next to us. He made this visit very enjoyable.

My first stop at any BBQ place in Kansas City and was so happy from the time I walked in. the food was cook prefect, I had the beef ribs and the baby back. the mgr came by and we started to talk about my meal, he ask did I tried the bake beans. I said no maybe the next time, he said wait and he went back for a sample. WOW get the beans.
****Read only if you want HONESTY**** I'm very picky when it comes to barbecue. The beginning of my experience started with pulling into the parking lot. The smell of smoked barbecue hit me like a brick wall. We were greeted by friendly staff and seated. Not too busy. Our waitress (Mickey) was very energetic as well as very friendly. She brought our drinks out very promptly. I decided to order the corn bites for an appetizer. I've heard quite a but about them. They came with a side of ranch. Very crispy on the outside and a creamy corn inside. Veryimpressed. They also tasted very fresh. I ordered the meat platter (3 meats, 2 sides). I chose sausage, pulled pork, and brisket. For sides I chose baked beans with coleslaw. As I said I'm very picky with my barbecue. The plate came out probably 10 minutes later and let me tell you, they are generous with their meats. The first bite just about knocked me on the floor. Hands down the best barbecue I've had the pleasure of tasting. Very tender meat and not flooded with too much sauce. The sauce was sweet and almost spicy. Very tasty. So 5 stars on the meat. The baked beans are very good but sweet. The beans have a smokey sweet taste with hints of bacon. So if you love baked beans this would definitely be a must. Lastly the coleslaw was on point. Very fresh and delicious until you get toward the bottom of the bowl. I'm sure it doesn't happen very often but the bottom of the bowl was like soup. Way too much liquid. As I said though, the coleslaw was very delicious. So overall, fantastic place to eat for barbecue. It is a bit pricey but I turn a blind eye to the price when it tastes like that.
