best bbq in kansas city. ive been going to rosedale for 33 years since i got out of the service ive tried gates and bryants and either one can stand up to rosedale. i go at least twice a month the food is cook just perfectly the french fried mushrooms are great and what can you say about the fries. my wife loves the combo ham and beef which is done to perfection. the ribs are so tender that the meat falls off the bone. no other bbq place in town that gives you tremendous service and the sauce is also the best. cant beat the prices. the help is extremely pleasant and always treats the custtomers perfect. will always continue to go there. now my sons take there friends to rosedale also.
Rib Tickling. If you are within an hour drive of this Kansas City establishment make some time to go! The ribs are the best (they only serve pork!) They are moist, tender and meaty. We ordered them without the sauce...you can add it at the table if you want it is unique in that it is not like the traditional sweet kansas city sauce. It is also fast and the staff is efficient! The flavor of the sausage is also wonderful. Gotta have some fries too!
Great catering Too!!!!!!. This place is great! Not only do we eat here all the time but we use them to cater all our family events. It's so easy. They provide everything; food, paper products,forks, spoons and knives. You can't buy and fix a meal for an event for any less money and the food is fabulous. Everyone raves about the baked potato salad and calls before the next event to make sure we order it again. We even order extra so we have left overs for the week, but we have to make sure to put is away before everyone comes or it will all be gone!
Rib Tickling Good!. We Ordered a $19.00 slab for a family of four along with the suggested Baked Potato Salad (great suggestion) The ribs were quickly devoured and we ordered another to eat there and one to take home. The meat was tender and fall of the bone and the sauce was unusual and very good I also took home a bottle of the sauce. I have to say this was a place that came highly recommended and I would pass this recommendation on to those out of town visitors or KC people who want great barbeque without having to pay steakhouse prices! Try the Cheesy Baked Potatoes they are great!
Great value and great 'Que. Although this is a "joint" it's a place that is worth the wait in line during the lunch rush! The wait staff is very fast and efficient! I usually order a half-bird heavy on the sauce with their perfectly crispy fries for a side with an RC cola. If I wan't to indulge I go whole hog and order a deluxe combo dinner...be ready to eat! This place has been a long time favorite with friends and family as well as out of town visitors. 70 years+ and still smokin' for a reason. They offer a true value for the dollar and offer a consistent product. Keep on smokin' Rosedale and we'll keep coming back for more.
Burnt Ends and Fries. Rosedale BBQ is a long time family favorite. Their Burnt Ends and Fries is top of the line with tons of beef cooked to perfection. The fries are to die for and you just simply must try the deep fried mushroom, served with chilled ranch for dip. Their savory BBQ sauce takes the cake and is the perfect blend of not too sweet, not too spicy. You will not leave hungry! My husband once took me to Gates during our courtship and I thought he must be kidding that this was BBQ. I took him to Rosedale's on S.W. Blvd. and he thinks I'm amazing now. The kid meals are also wonderful, and big enough to share with mom and dad. I am talking about top quality breast chicken strips, not processed nuggets. Yum!
Avg BBQ. I dont get the appeal of this place. I thought the sauce and the food were avg. The staff was rude and the place smells like a old pack of cigs.
Home of shredded meat. I got a Combo Dinner Special to go today w beef and ribs. the beef was 95% shredded meat. I called to express this was the first time I had ever gotten such low quality at the restaurant. I was told by Chris the manager this is the way they do beef dinners now. I will not be back.
Best BBQ I've Ever Had.
This is what people are talking about when they say that Kansas City is known for their BBQ.
Prices are great and the food is wonderful.
Best BBQ in Kansas City. Not only do the local residents of KC claim that Rosdale's is the best, but they've also won several city awards for their food from the KC Star. It doesn't matter what you get there, it's good, filling, and worth coming back again for more. Sunday's special, baby back ribs, is a tradition for many people. But if you're in your Sunday best, get plenty of napkins, because they are MESSY. Though I love everything I've tried at this place, the one plate that stands out to me is a "Half Bird with Fries" (smoked, barbeque chicken with bread and crinkle fries). The food is great, and worth coming for, but the sauce is what makes it an experience. Personally, I'm a huge fan of BBQ sauces, and Rosedale's has a very unique, sweet'n'spicy sauce. I buy it by the quart to use at home for my own smoked BBQ meats. It's good enough to use in place of ketchup as well, and tastes a lot like spicy, homemade Catsup from the south. Anyway, go to Rosedale Barbeque. Order something. Find a table. Enjoy.
