Where to Go for the Best BBQ in Missouri

Is there anything better than pulling up in a Dodge R/T model to authentic Missouri barbecue? We don’t think so. And, with so much BBQ near Kansas City, MO, it isn’t hard to find. But, if you’re looking to find the genuine article, we mean the real deal best BBQ in Missouri, then you need to start with the restaurants on our list first.

Arthur Bryant’s Barbecue

A name synonymous with Kansas City BBQ, Arthur Bryant’s hasn’t changed their legendary recipe, or the style of their dining room, in nearly 50 years – and we think that’s a good thing! The meat is slow cooked to perfection right in the dining area so that you can see – and smell – what happens at every step. They offer all the staples, including brisket and ribs, and we’re told the lard-fried potatoes are especially tasty.

Pappy’s Smokehouse

‘Hillbilly décor’ and a down-home feel helped to draw diners into Pappy’s, but the Memphis-style BBQ bring them back again and again. The joint doesn’t serve alcohol, but it does offer up a decadent array of brown sugar rubs, sauces, and sides that make the drive well worth it.

Charlotte’s Rib BBQ

Ah, Wilbur, we don’t deserve you. Or maybe we do. Charlotte’s Rib has been serving up award-winning slow-smoked meats since 1977, and you could say they’ve mastered their craft. Sample staples like fall-off-the-bone ribs and pulled pork and finish it off with fresh potato salad just like mom used to make.

Salt + Smoke, BBQ, Bourbon, and Beer

A relative newcomer to the scene, Salt + Smoke offers up many of the Texas-style BBQ favorites you’ve come to know and love, as well as some interesting side choices like smoked trout, falafel burger, and toasted ravioli. An unconventional menu that’s worth diving into for sure.

Bogart’s Smokehouse

A festive joint that only stays open until the food is gone, Bogart’s sells out often, which is a testament to the Pit Master’s skill. They serve all the standards, plus an in-house smoked pastrami and a tender, melt-in-your-mouth tri-tip sirloin that has to be tasted to be believed.
