Wonderful! We stopped for lunch as we were traveling across the country last week. We were pleasantly surprised with the quality of brisket and our favorite, the burnt ends. As the family of a former prize winning competitor, we know great BBQ when we taste it, and it was top notch. With friendly and helpful staff, a clean restaurant, and outstanding food, we highly recommend Big Boar. (It was much better than the very well known restaurant where we ate in Kansas City today!)
