Place was busy the entire time we were there and there is very limited seating, but the staff was friendly and the food was delicious.

Went to Kansas City for Chiefs game and was told by my brother in law who lives in Liberty that you have to go and try it. Was not disappointed at all. I got Baby Back and my wife got half slab of large end both where great!

This restaurant is everything a BBQ place should be. The building is historic, the food is delectable and the service is always friendly. Try the burnt ends and corn nuggets (spicy corn nuggets for the thrill-seeker in you). YUM!

Went for lunch on a Sunday. 4 adults. 2 kids. Pretty full at 12:30! Sat in bar side. Chiefs fans were in full force. So loud. Would be fun if I didn't have my kids. The food was pretty good. My biggest complaint was the meat wasn't very warm. The side salad was actually fresh and good. We had the... More

Many visits now, always wonderful. Favorite is ribs, and brisket. You can't beat the cute location and it's well worth the drive from Kansas City.

First of all let me say that I'm not a big fan of BBQ but Wabash may have changed that. My girlfriend and I had the Piggyback Combo for $20.99 so we got to sample their smoked turkey, pulled pork, smoked ham, brisket and ribs. All of it and I mean all of it was succulent and delicious. I especially... More

Went with a huge group from work, the service was great. The food was good and they were able to handle all of us pretty efficiently. I had the ribs and I highly recommend them................

My KC relatives knew about Wabash BBQ and surprised us with a visit! Really neat scene with the restaurant, smoke house and outdoor patio. It would be fun to visit for the setting alone, but the BBQ makes it worth the drive. I had brisket - mouth-watering - and half a rack - great flavor. I recommend this to anyone... More

Great BBQ with Unique Atmosphere. Our group of 4 was on a BBQ challenge to find the best BBQ in the area. This place tied for our best. The very cold beers, fried mushrooms and onion strings got us off to a great start. What makes Wabash the best? We felt their meat was the most meaty of all the... More
