Kansas City Barbeque is a proud supporter of our Military troops.

We cater to our brave men and women serving in our armed services with great specials daily, friendly service and memorabilia that will make everyone feel right at home.

From photos at the bar to decorated paintings in and around the Barbeque and of course the armed services hats worn by our brave men and women floating from the rooftops of the bar. Kansas City Barbeque is a tribute to all of you and the service and protection you provide our great country.
