KC Smokehouse Bar-B-Que, one of Kansas City's best-known barbecue restaurants, has opened at 7020 S. Memorial Drive.
Family owned Smokehouse Bar-B-Que opened 25 years ago in Gladstone, Mo. The Tulsa restaurant will be its fifth store and its first outside the Kansas City area.
While virtually all Tulsa-area barbecue places offer only pork ribs, Smokehouse Bar-B-Que has pork and Angus beef ribs. Ribs also are offered in a variety of styles - spare ribs, short end, long end, baby back, short ribs, back ribs and burnt ends.
Smokehouse Bar-B-Que also offers a line of chicken dishes, steaks, pork chops, catfish, pulled pork, sandwiches, salads and seafood.
Among its popular side items are cheesy corn, creamy coleslaw, hickory pit beans and sweet potato fries.
The restaurant is on the west side of Memorial Drive in space that formerly held FireRock Grill & Bar.
