“hands down, the best BBQ in kansas city!”

This BBQ legend was founded in the early 1920's, by Charlie Bryant, Arthur's older brother. When Charlie died, Arthur took over and moved the BBQ restaurant to 18th and Brooklyn, just four blocks away from Municipal stadium, the home of the Kansas City Blues, followed by the Kansas City Athletics. Municipal Stadium was also the first home of the Kansas City Chiefs.

We were there around 230 and it wasn't very busy, in and out in about 30 min. The food was delicious! Serving sizes are very large.

I've heard lots of good things about Kansas City BBQ, and was certainly not let down by this place. The food was super delicious, and the service was very friendly. I had the ribs with a side of fries and it was off the hook!

We stopped here on a Sunday after our 1st choice was not open - Joe’s Kansas City BBQ on 47th street.
We had high expectations after reading about Joe’s and hoping Arthur’s would be equal. We were disappointed. While the place was quite busy it was also not clean. We cleared a table and used napkins to wipe off the table top. We then cleaned our own utensils and started our dinner. While we expected the chicken , brisket and ribs to all be flavorful, they were not. We tried the BBQ sauce in an attempt to add flavor and that was to no avail. While we may have just been there on an off day today with all other days being the best bbq ever we will likely never know since we were just passing through.
Not on our top 20 list of favorite BBQ places.

BBQ is ok, sweet/hot sauce is excellent. Service is suspect, rude and indifferent to your order preferences. Has had some issues with food inspections. If your here to get Que go to Joes Kansas City or Q39.🐖

this place is definitely good, but my favorite in Kansas City (and maybe the world) is still Oklahoma Joe's

Cool vibe and great history, but found the beef to be very dry and the burnt ends to be flavorful but overly sauced. Fries are soggy and under seasoned.
