On visiting Kansas City for a business trip, some of my colleagues took the out-of-town folks to experience some KC BBQ at Q39. I had anticipated a place with a greasy smoker out back in a narrow alley, but Q39 is a very carefully curated...More

This new bbq place is such a success they are opening new stores! Great food, great service, but very busy at lunch time, plan ahead. This place has a huge take-out service but worth the wait. Generous portions, cold beer, fantastic!

We went to Q39 during Restaurant Week and found it delicious. The service from Dan was great. Everything from the french fries to the salad to the ribs and brisket was excellent. Would go again!

This was my first time eating at Q39. The place was packed on a Saturday night. We were lucky to find 2 seats at the bar. I ordered the triple threat sandwich, it was incredible. The meat was really tender and full of flavor.

It's better if you do. The wait isn't horribly long. If it's just two people, eat at the bar.
