THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS KC Pit BBQ Restaurant Review

: Kansas City barbecue is known for its way with beef brisket, slow cooked until it's tender, and for a specialty known as "burnt ends," the outside meat trimmings. These are sweet and moist, not overly "burnt." All that and more is available here. We like the meat but think the sauces---classic, thick, tomato-based Midwestern style---are somewhat puny in seasoning and rely too heavily on celery seed. The spicy version isn’t spicy at all, for instance. Mac 'n' cheese is terrific, and so are the collard greens and Brunswick stew. Also served are smoked turkey and KC-style sausage, plus decent pork ribs. Lamb is a must-try. Wings, onion rings, catfish and a host of other dishes round out the offerings. Availability of many meats is erratic, a real annoyance when you've driven miles for brisket and they're out at lunchtime on a Friday. Fans fill the joint most evenings, so come early to avoid a mob scene.
