I'm a native of KC. All my life I've known of and enjoyed Gates BBQ. Growing up it was a special treat to have some. My husband told me about Big T's and how well he liked it. So I tried it and I must admit, its very good! It cost a little less than Gates and you get a... More

We were traveling east through Kansas City and were hungry. This was the place to go. Large and delicious bbq sandwiches. We tried the beef and the pork. Both were delicious. I would be a regular if i lived there. This is authentic and had great staff. Don't miss it

Has to be the top two places I have had BBQ. I had the open faced burnt end sandwich with fries two days in a row. The meat was amazing, perfect smoke line, top notch homemade sauce. If your looking for the real deal BBQ this is the place. Will gladly come back!

Big Ts has two locations, check their website. I had lunch here, half a rack of long end ribs, baked beans, and cole slaw. Service at the counter was a bit unfriendly. The outside of the place is a total dive and the inside is not much better. The bathroom was sort of clean. The food was excellent! The ribs... More

I started going here because it was on my way home from work. I ended up watching all the Royals away play off games here. Great turkey and beef on bun as well as ribs and such. I am crazy about the sweet potato fries. They put a cinnamon mixture of some sort on them and they taste incredible. The... More

I love BBQ. If I had to choose just one favorite, it would be Big T's. It isn't in the best part of town, but a lot of cops eat here so you're safe!! This is the real thing with a pit that looks like it hasn't been cleaned out since 1987 (but that's a good thing)! The beef, pork,... More

I was working down the road at the Nation Guard Armory and asked where to eat. Was told about this place by some locals and it was definitely good!! The lady at the register recommended the Burnt Tips......WOW!!! Nice smokey taste and the BBQ sauce was the icing on the cake!!! Couldn't finish my plate, so I got a togo... More

No specials on Friday The boss said beef on bun. It was excellent. And that red pop. Dang. This spot is good. Popular with city employees. I like that.

Stopped here on a whim after seeing some of the online reviews. Sure glad we did. From the outside it looks a bit run down and dingy. The inside was about the same, but the food more than made up for it. We plan on stopping here again on our way thru.

It was a cool place and caught my eye as a place I wanted to go. I got the burnt ends and they were dry and the beans were just OK. Not some place I will visit again
