I have stopped several times to pick up food to take home and the ribs have been excellent and the potato salad is very good.

The Cox boys know how to smoke meats. Everything I have tried at their restaurants is wonderful. Smoked chicken, pork, beef brisket, you name it, it's great.

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...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...More

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.More

Description
This location is temporarily CLOSED while we take some time to perfect a NEW style of BBQ. Catering services will, however, continue to be available throughout the Flint Hills during this time! When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn’t decide which kind of ‘Q’ we loved the most… so we just decided to offer it all. Now, we’re working on a one-of-a-kind "Cox Bros. style BBQ" that will be unique to our region, but we feel like we can only do this effectively at one location first. So we’re starting in Manhattan, KS. Then we’ll bring it over to Junction City after it’s been perfected. We look forward to being back up and running in Junction City sooner or later.
