You feelin’ hungry, Kansas? Step right on up to check out these 11 great BBQ joints to wrap your hands around a saucy bun and get a little messy. If you’ve got a better place for BBQ sandwiches, tell me! (It’s one of the food groups on MY pyramid, anyways!)
1. All Slabbed Up - 405 Muncie Rd Leavenworth, KS
Holy smokes check out that family meal! All Slabbed Up reads as a win when it comes to BBQ, and their sandwiches aren't left out of that rating. If you're in the area, this is a great stop to make!
2. Bite Me BBQ - 132 N Saint Francis St Wichita, KS
So maybe Wichita has a load of great BBQ places, but you're tired of Hog Wild and Rib Crib? Take a bite outta this place, it's a favorite of mine, and never disappoints.
3. Buck's BBQ and Steakhouse - 1898 US-166 BUS, Sedan, KS
In addition to a tasty bbq joint, they're also an RV park and cabin rental. So after your meal here, you can sleep it off here as well! Pictured are the Memphis loaded sweet potato fries, which looked so good I had to show you.
4. Chuck & Hank's River Shack -
102 E Atchison St
This place is oh-my-amazing, and their food is always fresh and delicious. They smoke their own BBQ in house, and pictured is what looks like a simple BBQ chicken sandwich, but tastes like worlds of flavor. I've never been disappointed here, and the view just adds on to the wonderful experience.
5. Guy & Mae's Tavern - 119 W William St Williamsburg, KS
So maybe I've said something about them before, but these guys are so delicious they deserve another feature. What's better than BBQ pork? Nothing that I've tried, that's for sure. These guys have a perfect mix going on.
6. Heavy's Steakhouse & BBQ - 103 W 7th St Concordia, KS
Heavy's is definitely true to its name with the Heavy Hitter 5-meat sandwich shown here. I'd just drench that in house BBQ and live the dream until it was over. Who else can't resist a good BBQ sandwich?
7. Plank's Barbecue - 912 E Fulton St Garden City, KS
Their food's so good, that no one waits until after they take a photo to start eating! Let the bbq speak for itself, though, because this place is definitely fantastic.
8. Slap's BBQ - 553 Central Ave Kansas City, KS
You all know I couldn't talk about great Kansas barbecue without including a KC joint, so here's Slap's. With a line out the door, you know they're worth a stop, and their food just confirms it. However, once they're out of food, the doors close, so you better get there on time!
9. Smokin' Joe's BBQ - 519 E Santa Fe St Olathe, KS
A quick stop for lunch ends up with a new favorite bbq joint here at this shop. Who can say no to onion rings on BBQ pork?
10. Sugarfoot and Peaches BBQ - 1601 E Wall St, Fort Scott
It's definitely more than meats (ha-ha) the eye at this place! Their brisket is by far a favorite, and the house sauces leave nothing to be desired, except more sauce! The food is most definitely the star of this show.
11. TK's Smokehaus - 114 E 12th Hays, KS
The challenge of eating this might be a little much for most, but there's other smaller sandwiches to fall in love with here in Hays. The place doesn't look like much, but hey, there's some great eatin' to be had instead!
