This is an authentic "dive" that is obviously a bar and probably rockin blues bands at night but we went for a weekend lunch and lots of families sitting at long tables. Food was good but my ribs were a tad fattier than I like. Fairly priced.

On our way back home to Pa, it was suggested by our son that we make a detour to KC and check this place out. It's back out of the way, but thanks to the TomTom it was easy to find. Don't expect a fancy joint as this place was visited by Diners, Drive Ins and Dives and is definitely
a "dive". But here is the saving grace, the BAR BQ is fantastic that the staff is friendly and helpful. Some of the best BAR BQ we have had and we have had it in Tennessee, North Carolina, Florida, South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Georgia, Texas, Louisiana and St. Louis.
When you pull into the parking lot you are greeted by the wonderful aroma of good stuff cookin' on the grill and inside you are treated to an amazing array of wall artifacts that will keep you visually entertained. A special bonus is that you will be entertained by itinerate jazz or blues bands. Great BBQ, unique surroundings, friendly atmosphere and entertainment. A must stop in KC, MO

We love going through KC just to try different BBQ joints and this is my favorite so far! The atmosphere is exciting - bubbling with music, happy customers and busy, friendly servers. The drinks came fast, the food (BBQ sundae and burnt ends) was excellent and we really enjoyed ourselves. If you don't like sharing your space, find somewhere else - these are community tables and are full. The only bummer? We came at the end of the afternoon music - I would have loved to heard more!!

Been here three times and consistently good. Ordered the sausage most recently. It was very tasty. Good place to hang with friends.

Loved this place! It was amazing place and lots of fun! The Kings Combo has a lot of food you may want to share it.
