Family owned business and they have great BBQ! Must eat here if nearby on days they're open. It's delicious! They have desserts too. Wonderful meats and sides! The BBQ is so flavorful!

I had pulled pork and sausage pate and loved every bite. There's not many restaurants in town where the owner makes your plate and then come to the table to check on you later.

I don't think the people in this restaurant could have made me feel any more welcome...they were very kind and friendly and the generous portion of pulled pork on the sandwich set the expectations high at the beginning of the meal. Unfortunately, the BBQ did not live up to the expectation.

This place has an excellent barbecue. The platter comes with a sausage included and a side that is a perfect pairing.

I eat BBQ all over the place and I will say the Pink Flamingo is right there towards the top. It is a family owned business and you can tell. I had the pulled pork sandwich for lunch. I love the piece of sausage that is thrown in. Give this place a try.

The food and odor of smoke is too much for me. The chicken was moist and the Cole slaw was very good.

I have eaten at Bbq restaurants all over the southwest and in Kansas City. the Pink Flamingo is up there with the best. It is head and shoulders above the other four Barbecue restaurants in town that I have tried. Great Brisket, pulled pork and the sausage is the best I have ever eaten

tender meat, juicy, succulent, full of flavor. Try the bold sauce, dark and sweet! Whether you try the pulled pork or the brisket you won't be disappointed!

They have always and still do put out some of the best BBQ around! The sausage link is awesome but my favorite is the beef brisket. They have some great side dishes also and a selection of BBQ sauces you have to try.

We went chose this based on the TA recommendations and were nervous when we saw the place was a cafeteria style. But, pleasantly surprised in the quality of the food! Had a great meal for two for $20.00. The reviews did not disappoint.

Thank Susan V
