Bread was so soggy I couldn't eat it. Pork tasted ok. Burnt end chili was delicious. Definitely recommend that. Other than my bread it was pretty decent

Living on kudos from the past... ribs cooked over wood fire not smoked... hugely disappointed.

The sandwich we each had was okay. Nice and friendly, we sat outside, there were flies. Onion rings and fries were delicious. We will try again

Always exciting to try new BBQ places in KC! Woodyard has a nice little patio outside to eat when it's nice out. But that and the fries and the burnt ends may be the extent of my review. I wish their sauce and BBQ had a little more pizazz. Maybe I am odd man out, but I love BBQ'd turkey and actually a lot of KC places nail it, but here it was just a little too bland for me and the wings were just alright. I hope the next time I come, there will be a little more to offer.

Loved the ribs here. Smokey, great flavor. Must try! Would totally eat here again.


Wow, great from end to end. Burnt end sandwich was amazing and I loved the jalapeño cornbread! Fries were delicious and sampled some burnt end chili that was great! Thanks so much for great BBQ!

Bbq ribs and sauces are as excellent as the great late Bourdain reviewed him!!! Their French fries are excellent as well? perfect hole in the wall gem!

Pulled pork was solid. It made for a good sandwich with the creamy coleslaw. Their sauce was a good balance between tangy and sweet. Cheesy corn was fine not my favorite iteration of the dish but it will still be my choice still on my next visit. The chili is ok by itself. Topped with burnt ends it's phenomenal. The jalapeno corn muffins were good enough I got two more. The only piece I regret was getting a single rib as it was delish.

I love this place. I'm an over the road Trucker. Every time I'm in town I try to stop by. The wood flavor in the meat is awesome. They also make the best potato salad I've ever had.

Great food. Pulled Pork was excellent.

Delicious. I got the burnt end chili. My only "complaint" if you could even call it that, is I wanted the chucks of burnt ends a bit smaller or maybe if there was beef. It just seemed a bit watery. But there's unlimited crackers to soak up that liquid. Or better yet, order cornbreadwhich I regret not getting :(


Comfortable and clean setting. Food was okay but was a bit dry and cold when served.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit tonight!! Great food, great setting, and kindest owner!! We’ll be back another time when we’re in town.

Great food, although the burnt ends chilli had ground beef as well as the 3 beans.
