Southern Living - September 2022 - "Burnt ends—the crisp, smoky bits trimmed off the end of briskets—are a Kansas City specialty, and this BBQ gem has long served the best version in the city. The tender, chewy morsels have a delightful salty, smoky bark from the pit, and they're drenched in tangy sauce and piled atop a layer of sliced white bread to soak up all the goodness. Follow them up with a combo sandwich, with tender beef and slightly salty ham layered between two slices of white bread. The soft bread, smoky meat, and tangy brown sauce meld together with each bite, offering a splendid taste of Kansas City's inimitable barbecue style." Voted #35 out of 50 in the Nation!!

Travel Magazine 2019 - "21 of the best BBQ joints in KC!! - This old school joint is full to the brim of barbecue delights for hungry punters. Loved locally for their crispy fries, tangy burnt ends (many folk say they’re the best in the city) and tasty meat combo sandwiches. You won’t ever leave here disappointed!!"

Lonely Plant - 2020 - "Number 12 in the US!! A hole-in-the-wall, founded in 1986, that slings some stellar beef and pork burnt ends, This BBQ joint is also known for its smoked wings, thick-cut fries, and overstuffed sandwiches, which arrive drenched in sauce unless you ask for them dry. The meat here has a distinctive crust – according to Feast Magazine, the result of owner's practice of saucing the meat beforehand and basting it while it cooks."
