“Good BBQ”
Review of Cox Brothers BBQ

Cox Brothers BBQ
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: US$5 - US$39
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: This location is temporarily CLOSED while we take some time to perfect a NEW style of BBQ. Catering services will, however, continue to be available throughout the Flint Hills during this time! When we decided to open a BBQ joint years ago, we couldn’t decide which kind of ‘Q’ we loved the most… so we just decided to offer it all. Now, we’re working on a one-of-a-kind "Cox Bros. style BBQ" that will be unique to our region, but we feel like we can only do this effectively at one location first. So we’re starting in Manhattan, KS. Then we’ll bring it over to Junction City after it’s been perfected. We look forward to being back up and running in Junction City sooner or later.

Just what you would expect in a BBQ joint. Good food, clean facility and, for BBQ, reasonable prices.

The food is to die for and all of the sauces to choose from is cool. The meat is tender and the sides re unique, but too small in portion size. The food is rather high priced, so we don't eat there frequently. The people who work there are super friendly and helpful and they walk around asking about your dining experience.

We were excited to find this place as we LOVE BBQ. It smelled amazing when we pulled in the lot and the place looked interesting. Staff was awesome and very friendly and willing to help with anything we needed. The food was the problem for us; a huge disappointment. You could tell the meat was smoked and it did taste good by itself. We could not find a sauce that we liked at all. They all were the liquid kind of BBQ sauce (we prefer the thicker kind) and all pretty much tasted the same. Fries were great. The beans were just regular store bought plain canned baked beans. From a BBQ joint that has such a good reputation we expected more.

We found this restaurant after taking a wrong turn--it is located next to a highway exit and so is convenient--BBQ of all types very good and very reasonable, with inexpensive beer, helpful staff, and very good prices. Junction City is mostly lower-priced national chains, so this BBQ place stands out as a very good alternative.

The food was plain, small portions, and overpriced. The service wasn't that good either. My husband asked a staff member where an item was. She rolled her eyes at him and pointed. Will not be going back.
