I am now 60 years old and grew up in the neighbor hood. Simply the best BBQ I ever have had. I love the Sauce. I now live in Denver and wish I could get the sauce here. The Jayhawker is my favorite along with the beans. Wow.
After visiting Hickory Log BBQ i have to imagine that the 5 star reviews come from either the friends or the immediate locals that choose not to leave the area and try some real bbq. This is not real BBQ, beef is very dry, i tried both the burnt ends and i guess what was brisket but tasted more like roast beef with bad sauce. The beans are canned beans with some burnt tip meat pieces. The potato salad tasted store bought and lacked flavor. And speaking of lacking flavor their sausage tops my list of worst sausage of all time. I respect the home town feel you get inside but that is where the same town bar/BBQ joint ends in points. Don't bother making this a KC BBQ stop. 1 Star.
This is a small little BBQ place on the Kansas side of the metro area. Don't let their size fool you because they have some great BBQ.
Their must have is their JayHawk sandwich. This is the definition of KC BBQ and meat.
