Most unique BBQ in the world. Since 1970's I have eaten BBQ all over the USA with just one goal. Fine a place better then this one and after 30 plus years I still have to say, if I could only have just 1 place for the rest of my... (more)

If you want a BQ sand and are driving by, not a bad spot. I would rank it as very average. Meats are not memorable but tasty, BQ beans sub par Burnt Ends a KC tradition are just ok If you have time head to Jack Stack in... (more)

Born and raised in K C. live in Nashville and miss Arthur Bryant's I always get mine without the sauce and put Gates sauce on it. Thats a good way to go, if you have not gotten used to the taste of the sauce. You have plenty... (more)

Arthur Bryant's is the best BBQ I have ever tasted! Yes the decor is not even close to the lavish restaurants that you find on the Plaza but I think that is what makes it even better. When I think of BBQ I don't think of... (more)

My wife and I split a whole slab of ribs and had gift certificate money left over for a bottle of sauce! We both gravitated toward the Rich & Spicy sauce (President's Choice) over the Original and Sweet Heat. The ribs... (more)

This is not a fancy joint, it's on a street with prett much no other stores around it. It's only a couple blocks away from the 18th and Vine Jazz scene which is nice. The place is quite honestly a little grungy but that's... (more)

I live in Florida, but at least once a year me and my parents go to KC and eat at Arthur Bryant's. Obviously not just for it, but our trip is incomplete without it. My entire family besides immediate live in KC, and me and my... (more)

Arthur Bryant's BBQ is the most frequent recommendation when someone wants barbecue. I thought it was good, but over-rated. You order at the counter like at a fast food place, then sit at drab tables in a room of boring... (more)

Bryants has a Barbeque sauce that some may have to acquire a taste for, but it is one of my favorites. It is a bit gritty and has a good bite to it. The sauce is proudly displayed in 5 gallon water bottles in the West-facing... (more)

It was good atmosphere, exactly what you would expect for a bbq joint. But I wasn't that impressed with the BBQ itself. I especially didn't like the original bbq sauce. I much prefer Danny Edward's.... (more)

Awesome awesome BBQ. I regularly drive 150 miles just to eat at AB's. Of course, 18th and Brooklyn is the only one to visit. The portions are absolutely ridiculous, you WILL be sick if you eat it all. I usually eat there... (more)

Very good food. I had a combo plate with a chicken hindquarter and pulled pork. The chicken was great, but the pork was absolutely awesome! Very tender and flavorful. I probably prefer the sauce from Gates BBQ, but... (more)

hmmm, how can I convey my life long true love for arthur bryant's!? My tummy is getting grumbly just thinking about it. I go in and get my order to go. I'll get the burnt ends and fries which comes with the sweet sauce.... (more)

One diner gets in line...The other gets a table - It's pure joy on Brooklyn Ave ...Whatever the size of the line...Just wait! You won't be sorry. Incredible Beef Brisket and Ribs.....Legitimate fresh cut fries, too.... (more)

The sausage has changed in the last year, no longer like an italian style sausage, now some type of sliced sausage. I now have to go elsewhere when craving a bbq sausage sandwitch, The BBQ beef sandwich is still the best... (more)

This place takes the cake, or the sauce as it were. Of all the amazing barbeque joints in KC this is the best. Nothing except meat that has been smoked for ages, fries that induce a heart attack on sight and sauce that is... (more)
