Award winning RIBS! You can smell the smoke from miles away as you approach Excelsior Springs, the BBQ is second to none from the locally owned establishment. Bring the whole family and enjoy a small town atmosphere and the history of the old WABASH TRAIN DEPOT. The prices are very reasonable and you will always have plenty on your plate.... More

Hole in the wall BBQ join in an old train depot. BBQ is great - burnt ends and pulled pork are some of the best I've ever had. Service could be more attentive but wasn't bad. Price is great.

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
