Pulled pork was good but compared to Famous Daves it was just ok. Portions are huge. I could have easily split mine with another person. Bathrooms are not very clean. Very casual..I like that you just order your food, get it right there, and pay...no...More

Love it. Don't listen to BBQ snobs who say the original is the only way to go. Same sauces, same meats. Not the same atmosphere, but the staff were right on it and you're not going to do better for cue in the immediate vicinity.

If you could only eat at one KC BBQ joint. This is it. The history of KC BBQ begins here. I have been going to Bryant's for almost 50 years.

Slinging brisket is a messy business, and Arthur Bryants makes no bones about it. Want pristine resto environs with white tablecloths? Maybe not for you. Want some ribs that require a good hosing afterward? Yeah, this is your place.

Love love love Arthur Bryant's! It is definitely my favorite BBQ place in KC. The cooks are so friendly and really act like they love their jobs... highly recommend the ribs and the sliced brisket sandwich. The sandwich is huge! Love the sauce as well!...More

Raised in Kansas City, BBQ has always been a favorite. Arthur Bryant's BBQ has been around since I can remember. So glad the Legend's location is open and continues to serve the ribs, pork and beef AB's is famous for.
