The best bbq.
18:57 07 Jan 20
Good BBQ... I have been several times and would recommend.
02:10 03 Jan 20
For my first visit was good. Got ribs to go, staff was friendly and the placed really clean. The ribs were solid, feel right off the bone. Beans were thick and meaty the way I like them. Slaw had a slight zing and not over sauced, more of a dry slaw also the way I like it. There sauce is little sweet with some kind of flavor I can't put my finger on. Will defiantly be back to try of items they have.😊

BEST BBQ in the Northland and one of the best I have had. Really great food. Great smoke flavor. Very great and quick service. A great representation of Kansas City Barbecue.The brisket was thin-skinned, moist and tender. The burnt ends were flavorful. The fries were crisp. They have 4 distinct sauces (smoked ketchup, sweet, spicy and a nicely balanced sauce). Sweet potato fries came with marshmallow sauce that had a nice citrus finish. They have a wide variety of cold, bottled beer at reasonable prices (nothing on tap).

Everything about Hawg Jaw was great on our first visit. All the meats were well cooked with a great balance of smoke flavor. I loved that they had smoked corned beef. The mac and cheese, BBQ beans, potato salad were all excellent. The fries are lightly battered and super crispy and fresh. They even had smoked ketchup! 3 different BBQ sauces were all good. The brisket nachos with beans added were pretty impressive. Even the kids meal hot dog was perfect. Casual and not fussy environment, but clean and not a dive. I would definitely recommend a visit. As good as any BBQ I have had in the area. Deserves a spot on everyone's list of the best in KC.

Woman at the encounter was cute she knew every customer by name she's very friendly, she knew everything about the menu she looked you in the eye when you were speaking to her. and she always smiled when she talked to you or you talk to her if she always looks right at you. My first visit and she'll be the reason I go back then the food..
21:34 21 Dec 19

Omg.. the burnt ends! THE BURNT ENDS!!! If you haven't been here, you have not yet lived your BBQ life... oh the cheesy corn? Yeah it's better than anything you've ever tried similar to it, well, anywhere... the sauces are great, but my favorite was the Kansolina sauce, its sweet, but fits very well with the meat...try this! Or die with regrets!

Definitely a contender for top 3 BBQ in the city!!! Great portions and great menu options
19:54 12 Nov 19
I have never cared for burnt ends until I ate at Hawg Jaw. I didn't know the place existed until my girlfriend and I took the KC BBQ tour. The ends were so incredible I wished I had enough to take some home with me, but I ended up eating all of them there.
21:15 11 Nov 19
21:36 06 Nov 19
Best burnt ends in the city! Hawg Jaw is my go to bbq spot. 3 different sauces plus spicy ketchup. All the sides are killer too!

seriously good Q. All your classic options with a few options, the nachos and Q baked potato were great.
13:50 16 Oct 19
Hawg Jaw moved and maybe new management. The Big Rip location is great. The nachos are worth the trip.

21:35 11 Oct 19
Our go-to KC BBQ!
20:12 10 Oct 19
This place is crazy good, and if you're hungry for lunch it's a good idea to show up a little bit before the restaurant opens.
19:21 10 Oct 19
Top notch Q and staff
15:40 10 Oct 19
Went here for a school fundraiser, they donated a portion of sales to the school which is pretty neat! Delicious BBQ! The briscuit had excellent flavor and I really enjoyed the spicy bbq sauce. The baked beans were also pretty tasty. Service was also great! Check em out, you won't be let down!
23:15 07 Oct 19
Made a late lunch trip to Hawg Jaw Que and Brew. I would say it is a little off the beaten path but worth the find. They have on street parking in front of the door, but looks like there may have a parking lot in the back of adjacent building. I parked on the street so I'm not sure if that's a shared lot or not. Anyway very large sign out front so finding the place is easy enough! Because of the time I walked in they were not busy so I got a chance to walk right up and order. I ended up ordering off the lunch menu that offered sandwich aside in a drink in a small medium or large. After you make your order you can find a seat and then they will call you by name to a window to pick up your food. My name was called faster than I expected so I must say I was pleasantly pleased with that considering I went in first world starving. Anyway my sandwich was really good and they delivered it dry or with no barbecue sauce on it but they have a variety of different barbecue sauces that you may try and apply to your liking. The place isn't very large but it was clean and comfortable. I would recommend this place if you haven't visited before.
13:56 06 Oct 19
Come Hungry!! Very Hungry - I ate almost an entire sampler.Menu selection is wide....portions are large - atmosphere is laid back and perfect for the homestyle barbecue ambiance.In addition the have a wide variety of their own branded sauces- rubs at very reasonable prices (Christmas shopping is complete seriously this stuff is that good)Try the smoked ketchup- its awesome! And a good selection of micro brews.The location is easy to miss - tucked away at a non descript location at 900 Swift St in a brick building. So u may have to look for it on your GPS - or just follow your nose!
22:45 04 Oct 19
Had burnt ends not bad. Sauces were ok.
17:29 02 Oct 19
Took my daughter here for a quick lunch today. We both approve or the brisket, beans and Mac and cheese!
12:27 02 Oct 19
Great BBQ. My first time eating there won't be my last.

19:41 21 Sep 19
The best burnt ends hands down in Kansas City and this is coming from someone that has gone to 31 different KC BBQ places as part of the KC BBQ Club on Meeting.
19:09 21 Sep 19
We love this place! We come here at least every other week. They have the best sides in their cheesy corn and the mac & cheese. All of their meats are smoked to perfection. I love Fridays with their smoked prime rib dinner. Keep up the good work!!

Pretty great brisket and pulled pork the ribs are tasty also. Their regular sauce tastes sweeter than any other bbq in Kansas City.

First time going to this restaurant and it was some of the best barbecue I've had in Kansas City .....WAY better than Gates BBQ!!! It's off the beaten path but when you find it you will be amazed as well
21:24 29 Aug 19
My spot for lunch when I have the nkc route. Unbelievable awesome smoked chicken!
18:16 28 Aug 19

Some of my favorite BBQ in KC! I've been there a couple of times and it has always been great. The meats are terrific, particularly the meaty burnt ends, and I've enjoyed all the sides I've tried as well, the cheesy corn in particular is probably the best I've had. The restaurant also has a nice rustic but inviting atmosphere that is combined with plenty of space and super quick service. Finally, any place that is crazy enough to take a hot dog and cover it with both coleslaw AND PULLED PORK is A-OK with me.If I were to provide a little bit of constructive criticism, I would say three things. First, the spicy BBQ sauce is not all that spicy, it tastes good but I didn't get almost any burn. Second, the sauces in general are all really good but aren't super distinct, they seem more like riffs on a theme. Not a bad thing necessarily but i generally like a bit more variety if there are going to be multiple options. Third, the brisket could be cut a little thicker in order to be a bit juicier and beefier, since it's shaved so thin it loses some of its best qualities.I will definitely be back again!
02:42 18 Aug 19
Very good food
01:14 18 Aug 19
Pretty legit BBQ burnt ends were very good and the ribs were right on the money, sauces are good as well
18:32 17 Aug 19

Delicious, deep smokey flavor in the brisket. A bit chaotic, but we walked in at noon. Food and service were great. Next time, I think we will go mid-afternoon.

Delicious BBQ! One of my favorites in KC and a hidden gem in North KC. The menu is a bit confusing, but I recommend the brisket. The choices of BBQ sauce were great! And the sweet tea is delicious!
01:26 18 Jan 20
The staff is friendly, and the place is inviting. I ordered a burnt end sandwich with sweet potato fries and the were pretty good. My fries were a little over seasoned but I would order again.
09:05 16 Jan 20
Got the sample platter was delicious
19:03 15 Jan 20
Great BBQ. I like the sandwiches and the fries are excellent. Just wish when I phone orders in that I didn't have to wait in line behind all the people who can't decide what they want to order.
21:13 04 Jan 20
The meat and side were good. My only complaint is for the up charge for the burnt ends that you should receive more meat than you get.
17:00 02 Jan 20
23:17 29 Dec 19
It was okay
01:19 27 Dec 19
Up from Georgia for the holidays, told the in laws I was ordering some Burnt Ends from SG, Father in law said, heck no. Go get Hawg Jaw. I ordered online and picked it up. Im glad I drove past the other place and got it from Hawg Jaw. Burnt Ends were great as was the cheesy corn side.

Great out of the way bbq joint. Awesome atmosphere, Awsome staff.And 5 stars to the Cooks. Im sorry Chef's. Smoke so deep you will think you have struck oil.Only down fall. If you blink you will drive past it.They need better signage. No off street parking.And if you do pass it up. Turn around or you will regret it.
02:55 09 Nov 19
Ribs were good. Beans and potato salad too. Spicy sauce needs more heat.
18:34 06 Nov 19
It's really good. My friend had a sandwich with a side of beans, and now he's on his third rib. He's ripping it apart. He's going savage! You should see it. Anyways, where was I? Oh yeah, great place.
20:40 19 Oct 19
Best burnt ends I've ever had. The other meats were also good but seemed to be a little dry. Every sauce was wonderful as well.
20:29 19 Oct 19
YUM! The loaded fries with brisket were so good! My husband loved his burnt ends, as well. People say there’s not much seating, but it didn’t feel small to me at all. Additional parking in the back.

Hawg Jaw is a cool little place to get some modern barbecue while in the KC area. Modern meaning sweeter flavored sauces with a kick. They were not overpowering and heat was good. We were here with a barbecue tour and were able to try their burnt ends and cheesy corn. Both were very good items. I would definately stop back to try more of their menu items. The interior was decorated pretty neat with signs and cool fire department pictures.

Wonderful BBQ! Excellent flavor to the meat, delicious dill pickles, spicy potato salad, great sauce too! Very friendly staff and a rewards program!
Passing through on our trip to the SCA World Cookoffs in Fort Worth TX. Had to sample some KC style ribs! Got ribs, seasoning and sampled 4 sauces. Also visited your competitor down the road. Our opinion-you win. Hands down. Great [email protected]
Grew up in Kansas City, always thought Bryants or Gates was where you went to get good BBQ, not any more, Hawg Jaw cooks BBQ like you should. Ribs are fantastic. You don't need the sauce, but 3 are available, great food.
my wife and kids absolutely LOVE Hawg Jaw. especially my one year old who is a big fan of the sweet potato fries and marshmallow fluff! They always give us extra for him. Great place, food and employees!
Really good Brisket sandwich! Can’t wait to try your burnt ends since that’s what you are know for. All four of your sauces is really good and large portions of sides is right on. Good job Hawg Jaw can’t wait until my next visit 👍
Just ate there for the first time and loved it! I had the burnt ends - they were awesome! Also, since I was with friend I tasted the wings, ribs, cheesy corn, beans and coleslaw. EVERYTHING was delicious. I only wish I lived in KC so that I could visit more often. Service was friendly. Priced right too!
Stopped in for the first time at lunch today. I had a burnt end and sausage combo sandwich with fries. Added some of their awesome slaw on top of the sandwich. The burnt ends and sliced sausage were so freakin’ good and the Seasoned Fries may be the best in KC... good stuff.
Best BBQ in KC hands down. Went this weekend and the burnt ends chilli cheese fries made me think I died and went to heaven. Their BBQ had the best flavor without having to sauce it. the kids rib plate is huge and you don't feel like you left feeling like you didn't get enough. will be back soon
The loaded fries are the best fries in KC. The crew there are really nice and super friendly. I was there last night. It was refreshing to see the crew with smiles on their faces. They looked like they were having fun. I've ordered other stuff there too. Not a bad item on the menu.
Went there because KC channel 5 said it was a great place. They were absolutely right !! Had 1/2 slab of ribs with beans. This is served with 2 slices of Texas toast. Awesome meal with great service. We will definitely go back.
There’s only one problem... I would like to try another entree... BUT the Burnt End are so good... I order them every time I’m there!!! Also the last 2 years in a row, my family ordered the smoked turkey for Thanksgiving... This will be year number 3!!!
The Buffalo Burnt End sandwich was the best sandwich I have ever crammed down my gullet. I am 99% certain that my tongue had 3 orgasms while I was feasting on that meaty chunk of heaven! Cheesy corn:on point. Beans: legit. All the meats....well let's just say that this place is more awesome than a robot-caveman punching god in the junk!
Great meals! First time to visit and will be back to try other menu items. We had the rune rib and it was perfect. I thought the atmosphere to be casual and relaxed. Service is good as you do not have table serve but order from the counter which is typical K.C. BBQ style. Only complaint was the parking of which there is little of and we ride the motorcycle.
Great Tasting BBQ with or without their sauces. All 3 sauces and their smoked ketchup were outstanding tasting to. Had ribs and chicken. The ribs had more meat on them than most other BBQ’s and the chicken was very moist. I’m going back soon!!!
Have gone to this restaurant since it was in Riverside. My husband and I usually have our Friday evening dinners at Hawg Jaws. He has to have their Prime Rib meal every Friday. He will not eat anyone else's Prime rib. I have tried almost everything on the menu and I can not really pick a favorite because they are all so good. I was so delighted that they moved to North Kansas City. Although they were closer in Riverside my husband and I would drive 30 minutes or more if we had to. I always tell people that talk BBQ if they haven't tried Hawg Jaws they should. Most have said hands down it it their new favorite BBQ now.
Really good bbq in the Northland. I've had burnt ends sandwich and 1/2 slab of ribs here, both excellent. Seasoned fries both times were great. Nice selection of bottled beers to choose from. Great "go-to" place if you find yourself in NKC.
Very nice staff and a laid back atmosphere. I love their sauces, everyone of them! Yum! Cheesy corn is off the charts delish. I had a BBQ beef and turkey sandwich with Boss Man's sauce...so, so good and what made it even better was the pickles....You must try the pickles!!! They are the best ever. Pick up some bottled sauce to take home....Get ya' some!!!! I'm so happy this BBQ gem is located up the street!
First off, I'll get my complaint out of the way. It moved from the Riverside location which was much closer to me, but I understand that was more on Riverside. I still wish it was the ten minutes away, rather than the 15-20.Now that that's out of the way, I'm not sure if this place is underrated, underappreciated, or just not that many people know about it. Nothing on the menu is bad, although, and this is a Kansas City thing, I've never understood ham on a BBQ menu.I'd put their ribs against any other ribs in the city, same with their burnt ends. Both are amazing. The smoked turkey is excellent.Tonight, I had the smoked chicken, and it might be the best thing on the menu. The skin was crispy and perfectly seasoned, while the meat was tender and juicy. I can't believe I hadn't had it before. Everyone should go to Hawg Jaw. It's one of Kansas City's very best.
My husband and I stopped by for some Ribs. They were very good, fall off the bone tender. The service was fast and courteous. Highly recommend a visit here for BBQ. This was our second visit. The other time we had their beef sandwich which was also delicious.
Tom and the kitchen crew make you feel welcome into the establishment. The meat isn't sauces which honestly, you don't even have to. If you're new start with the sampler plate. All of it was amazing and deliciously smoked. The burnt ends weren't fatty but not too lean and even the brisket/beef was smoked and not over cooked and wasn't super dry. This place is in my top five, from my own personal BBQ tour and I'll be back very soon.Ya'll made me love bbq again, thanks �
I see this place being the next great name of Kansas City BBQ! Beef brisket tender and savory. Ribs lip smacking good! Potato salad, coleslaw, beans, mac n cheese...all so wonderfully made and tasty. I'm hooked.
