Guide Review - BB's Lawnside Barbeque

Besides BB’s super friendly atmosphere and laid back crowd, the hickory smoked ribs are some of the best Kansas City has to offer. With a granite BBQ pit that dates back to the 1950’s, all of B.B.'s briskets, ribs, and meats are smoked for over 10 hours to deliver some serious BBQ packed with amazing flavor. For appetizers, you can’t go wrong with BB’s Slow Smoked Chicken Wings draped in their mouthwatering Famous Louisiana Sauce (large $7.95). But for the main course, don’t miss BB’s infamous Short End Dinner (includes one side, $9.95), or the house fave, the Smokey Jo’s Gumbo (bowl with a roll, $6.25), a spicy dish that is overflowing with smoked chicken and sausage.

And if that’s not enough, B.B.’s serves up a great mix of Blues and Jazz every night that will have you getting up out of your seat and dancing with the restaurant regulars. Check the website for band info and times.
