Classic!

One of the must-do things when visiting Kansas City is to eat barbecue. Kansas City barbecue is defined by Arthur Bryant’s. Awesome!

The atmosphere is wonderful: small, cramped, and without distractions. That permits diners to concentrate on the food. The barbecue beef is the highlight. Piled high and smothered in their special sauce one’s mouth waters at the sight.

Heavenly is the appropriate term.

Beef Barbecue Sandwich with Fries

Heavenly. This is exactly what a beef barbecue sandwich is supposed to taste like.

The best!

Thoroughly Disappointing

This was, by far and away, the most disappointing barbecue experience I’ve ever had. What makes it worse is that I read all of the bad reviews listed below and thought they must be knit-picking or overreacting. Turns out every bad review on this page was absolutely, spot-on accurate. The ribs were overcooked and dry—obviously victims of neglect—and I had far better burnt ends at the Royals game. Clearly this place is resting on its laurels. They don’t seem to care at all about their product which is really shocking for such an institution. Please, I implore you, don’t make the same mistake I did. Arthur Bryant’s is overpriced and just plain bad barbecue. I’m befuddled as to how there could be a positive review here, or anywhere for that matter. Instead, check out Fiorella’s Jack Stack Barbecue. It’s a bit more upscale (I was actually disappointed that it lacked the classic barbecue joint feel), but, unlike Arthur Bryant’s. they actually know how to prepare barbecue.

Terrrible! Do not waste your money there!

I ordered a full pork ribs for carryout at Speedway location. It was meatless, dry, extremely hard to chew and seriously overcooked. I called the restaurant and spoke with the owner. He was one of the rudest person in the world. He never apologized and blamed me not bringing the food back to them. He told me he had no solution for me.

I definitely would not go there any more. Consider the $20 bucks I spent there blown in the wind.

Trust my words. Don’t go there to waste your hard earned money. There are many real good BBQ in KC!
