“Follow the smoke to the BBQ”

Woodyard Bar-B-Que started with Frank Schloegel II working his grill at lunch, feeding his customers and his friends for free, while he sold wood deliveries over the phone.  Frank Schloegel III kept it going in the same spirit of generosity and started smoking for charities and church fundraisers. Eventually he gave in to multiple requests and opened the restaurant. We’ve always been a family business. And we’ve always been a big family, quick to welcome anyone willing to work. Through the ages Woodyard and Southside have employed countless cousins and second cousins.  Today we have partnered up with the Molloy family, Ciaran, who runs day-to-day operations and his father Fintan, along with cousin Dave Schloegel, round out the family affair.Come on down to the Woodyard! If you’re lucky, when you come in you’ll meet Frank and maybe hear some of the myths and legends that make Kansas City the king of BBQ and make Woodyard the best place to get it!! Woodyard was featured on No Reservations and Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives!

I live right across the rail road tracks from this little place and it's amazing. It's very under rated, even for Kansas City bbq. Def worth a stop just off the highway if you are passing thru.

When you get a whiff of the smoker going out front you know that you are in for some good bbq!
Rustic decor fits the place to a T! Check out the wood warehouse out back too!
