Ate my food, it was cold. The girl on the register was unable to show me how much meat was contained in a quarter plus serving (instead explaining, three times, that it was, in fact, a quarter pound). They brought out the food and I picked at my (again, cold) meat. Sauces are blank and flat-tasting. They DID have that... More

I sat at cracker barrel for 20 minutes and could not get service. I came here and got served immediately by friendly people. The pulled pork sandwich was very good and the ice tea. A lady offered me a go cup for my tea which was great. Clean place, great BBQ smells and clean restroom. I'll stop here again.

We ate here during a recent trip to Colorado. The meat was good, but the sauces were runny. Tried all four and didn't really find one that had the true bbq flavor I was after. Also had the sweet potato fries and they were just so so.

We tried it out because it was close to our hotel and are glad we did. I had the beef brisket and it was very good.

We went going for some great BBQ but what I tasted was fake smoke. It was mediocre at best, the fries being the only saving grace.

Stand in line then choose a table, however the beans and sweet potato fries are great. Brisket was in long strips and looked better than it tasted; Dry to my taste. Likely a much better place to take a crowd than a couple mid week.

Not really worth the price for what you get. Yes they are good and the sauces are good but the portions are small and most of the time some people can be rude. names will be left out due to they should know who they are all ready. Franchise famous daves had a better selection bigger portions and nicer than... More

Stopped in last week after a long day of shopping. Walked in, greeted by the staff, placed my order, found an empty table and real quickly was brought my meal. Excellent again. BBQ pulled port sandwich with two sides, they all are good but I selected their coleslaw which is the best I ever had and macaroni salad, good as... More

Description
When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn't decide which kind of "Q" we loved the most... The sticky messy KC style? The Texas style slow-smoked beef brisket that stands on its own? The Memphis style dry rub pork cuts, or the tangy Carolina style? Well, we just decided to offer it all. Find out more about our 4 kinds of "Q" on our style page. At Cox Brothers, the feeling is casual, but we're not casual about the attention we give to our BBQ. We'd be honored to feed you at our locations or with one of our catering packages. We are proud to offer two locations in the Manhattan and Junction City area. ​ Just give us a call, and we promise, you'll feel right at home... ​ ....At Cox Brothers
