This was, by far and away, the most disappointing barbecue experience I've ever had. What makes it worse is that I read all of the bad reviews listed below and thought they must be knit-picking or overreacting. Turns out every bad review on this page was absolutely, spot-on accurate. The ribs were overcooked and dry--obviously victims of neglect--and I had far better burnt ends at the Royals game. Clearly this place is resting on its laurels. They don't seem to care at all about their product which is really shocking for such an institution. Please, I implore you, don't make the same mistake I did. Arthur Bryant's is overpriced and just plain bad barbecue. I'm befuddled as to how there could be a positive review here, or anywhere for that matter. Instead, check out Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue. It's a bit more upscale (I was actually disappointed that it lacked the classic barbecue joint feel), but, unlike Arthur Bryant's. they actually know how to prepare barbecue.

Run, Don't walk when going to Arthur Bryant's. There sooner you get in, the sooner you can get in line. Just the right amount of time to make up your mind with all the barbecue choices.
Here's a tip: Do you want to know what to order? Just look around you and you will see what the other s have ordered. You can ask them what they ordered and how they like it. The people are very friendly.
I ordered the rib tips with fries. My plate was overflowing with ribs and fries. The ribs were cooked very good. Uhmm, uhmmmm!!!! Put some Sweet Hot Sauce, Uhmm, uhmm!!! I can't wait to get back.
