Belt Buster (choice of three meats)

So .... have been married for 37 years now and have been reminiscing with the hubby about where we use to go out to eat for our dates when we were 16 - Rosedale BBQ was mentioned by him and I have been thinking about it since ! We decided to go tonight 10/22 /20 and I must admit at the time of ordering I was disappointed that the ribs weren't going to be done for another 30 minutes . So instead I ordered the 3 meat dinner with sausage ,beef and rib tips .The sausage was so flavorful, the beef with sauce was moist and melted in my mouth and the rib tips were so tender! Loved the sandwich bread - soft but yet firm ( how do they do that?) , fries were crispy but not over cooked , coleslaw-sweet but not too sweet, and the baked beans well let me say I thought I had gone to heaven! Just have to tell you took me back when I was 16 (and smitten in love !) I Just turned 61 ! It is by far just as amazing as it was 45 years ago ! The BEST ! TRULY DID NOT DISAPPOINT ! Will HIGHLY recommend and suggest to anyone who ask me where to go eat BBQ in KC ! STILL A GEM ! Thanks for the memories and the deliciousness! Deb Hernandez

Chopped Style Sandwich Beef

I've been coming back to Rosedale Barbecue my entire life (30 years), and their chopped beef on a long bun sandwich is one monster of a sandwich! The crispy, crinkle-cut fries are perfectly crunchy, salty, and hot! Also, another highly underrated part of the experience is their crushed ice pellets that make any drink last forever! Lastly, their sauce is the best in Kansas City. It's a unique and flavorful pop to every dish they serve! I'd highly recommend making Rosedale Barbecue the destination for your next KC barbecue meal!

Burnt End & Fry Basket

I'm a KC local born and raised and this place holds the title for the best burnt ends in the whole state. Aside from Rosedale's top notch meat, they've got great spicy bbq sauce, and the real sleeper menu option is their Spicy Corn Nuggets. All around one of the greatest bbq joints in the country. 50 stars.

Chopped Style Sandwich Beef

I have eaten here for 20 years. Best dang beef on bun!! Ribs ate fall off the bone goodness for the belly. It all starts when you walk in the door and all you smell is the woodsmoke. The bbg beans are too die for. It's one of the BEST bbq places in kc.

Long End (Five Bones)

The Long End (five bone) Rib Dinner is my favorite menu item, and probably the best barbecue deal in town!! Five large, tender, meaty ribs, a heaping portion of hot, crispy fries, plus tasty cole slaw, excellent baked beans and two pieces of bread for about ten dollars!! I eat the sides plus one or two of the ribs and take the rest home--get at least another entree, often two out of the remaining ribs, depending on my appetite. You can't miss with the Long End Rib Dinner!!

Slab & 1/2

My family has been coming to Rosedale since the 60's. Always having ribs over Christmas. Still carrying on that tradition with my Family with slab of ribs plus other meat sides. The original sauce is the right touch on the ribs. Your the best BBQ in KC in my book. Thanks for memories. Paul

Burnt Ends

It's not KC BBQ if it's not burnt ends, and Rosedale has some of my absolute favorites in the metro area! I only recently discovered this gem, but you bet I'll be back.

Chopped Style Sandwich Beef

I highly recommend the succulent Bar-B-Q beef sandwich you can douse in sauce (get it on bread), an order of the crispiest-potatoey fries that I ever ate in my entire life. And don't forget the ice cold RC Cola (get a cup of ice too!). I hear the counter attendant now…One BEEF on Bread, pause… one Fry, Slab to Go, hold. "Memory lane…..while I wait. My Daddy's Fav-O-Right restaurant!! I trusted his judgment. His professions were… a butcher, a cook, and a meat packer at the KC meat packing plants in the 50's. He was an expert on beef. I was about 7 years of age in 1969 we'd pull up in our dark blue, long 1957 Chevrolet Bellaire. I would smell the Bar-B-Q meat cooking as I looked on-to-the wood logs stacked outside. We'd walk into the elongated restaurant with their nostalgic tables, chairs and booths. I scoot in. We didn't go to restaurants in those days. Although we did go to Rosedale BBQ. Dad had many more stories. Sometimes he brought home a slab of ribs wrapped in that reddish/pink paper, a bunch of slices of bread on top and an extra bottle of sauce. Mmmmm DELICIOUS…)" Snap….my order is ready. The bread is preferred over the bun because you want to taste the every so tender lean BEEF melt through the slice of bread. I now reside in Phoenix and I fly to KCK just to eat there at my family's favorite hometown BBQ restaurant. Eating at Rosedale is a 50 year legacy our Daddy gave to us when he left Kansas City and this earth on 9-9-2003. I highly recommend this restaurant. I'll will go with you.

Lean Sliced Beef Brisket, or Burnt Ends

The brisket is delicious on it's own or in a sandwich. I come to Rosedale's all the time. It's a great KC BBQ establishment and I like to recommend to out of towners because it's something different than all those other names.

I have been going to Rosedale's since 1985. I can't help but order shredded beef brisket every gosh darn time because it's so awesome alone with a perfect hint of smoke and even better with Rosedale's sweet and peppery sauce. It's heaven to me especially with the hot fresh crinkle fries and strawberry soft drink.

Rosedale has been a family favorite for at least three, maybe four generations. My favorites are the traditional beef sandwich, ribs, and the fries. The sauce doesn't get any better. I use it not just for my sandwich or ribs, but as a dipping sauce for the fries too. When friends come into town Rosedale is always on the menu!!!

Baked Beans

Been eating at Rosedale BBQ since the 50's. My dad worked there at age 13 in 1940. It's the family place for us. It's all good. I like the beef brisket and a large RC. Thanks for a lifetime of good food and fellowship.

Burnt End & Fry Basket

I can't wait to come back. It was so delicious. And I also had the cheesy potato bake and bread pudding. Of course I had to get a To go box, but I can say it didn't make it close to home in Oklahoma. Thank Anthony Bourdain (R.I.P).

Chopped Style Sandwich Beef

The combo meal is a favorite, with fries, beans and sweet cole slaw. An outstanding value, and the best BBQ sauce in KC. Top it all off with an RC cola and I am one happy camper.
