Smokehouse BBQ is neither a late-comer or late-bloomer on the KC BBQ restaurant scene. They definitely get less press than luminaries such as KC Masterpiece or JackStack, but they don't lack for fans.
EVERYTHING at Smokehouse is as it should be. Briskets soak in the smoke for 20 hours. You won't find a better tasting piece of meat. Their sausage is coarse and meaty, bursting with hearty flavor. Ribs are perfect every time. I'm mourning the loss of fried okra as a side, but otherwise, there's nothing missing in this great restaurant.
New openings in Zona Rosa and Overland Park have extended the reach of KC's best kept BBQ secret. I consider Smokehouse on a par with legendary Jack Stack (and both are superior to over-hyped KC Masterpiece). I'm a non-competition BBQ expert. When I'm ready for someone else to serve me BBQ, I go to Smokehouse.
