BBQ King Smokehouse (www.bbqkingsmokehouse.com)
Featured on Food Network in 2014 for their ribs and pretzel bomb sandwich, BBQ King Smokehouse was started about 8 years ago by two brothers who just loved to cook. They started messing around in the back yard, and as a result they came up with a small cozy place that welcomes everybody. From the natural aroma of their hickory smoker filling the building, to the old recycled barn wood that was used for the décor. BBQ King Smokehouse is the place you want to bring your friends and family to have some great BBQ!

Porky Chicks BBQ (www.facebook.com/mark.grant.545849/photos)
Porky Chicks BBQ serves up perfect mix of Kansas City & Memphis style BBQ. Mark Grant, Owner of Porky Chicks BBQ said, "Well you know, the thing of it is, we're from the south and people from the south do BBQ a little bit different. Everybody seems to tend to like southern style BBQ, we call it the in-between BBQ. Everybody talks about Memphis style, Kansas City style and we're half way in between Memphis and Kansas City, so I'd say it's in between. Our slogan is who knows a rib better than a razorback.
