Our lunch special today was the Quarter Chicken Combo for only $8.49 plus tax. It is a favorite for many of our patrons as they get 1/4 smoked chicken (white or dark meat) that is service with a small side, a piece of Texas Toast, and drink!
Some of the best BBQ in KC. They have an excellent rub and sauce you can take home. A must place to eat!

Awesome hole-in-the-wall BBQ joint. Service was top notch in a post-covid world. Got the sampler, and every meat was amazing. Will definitely recommend to others for lesser known KC BBQ!

Another satisfied big truck driver . I’m from Texas where BBQ is a big deal. Well guess what, I’ve heard of brisket but never “ Burnt Ends “ I’m talking tender and spicy if you want not to mention the Slaw Dog . I can’t give it all up, but I will say one thing. DELICIOUS great food and great service. Just like the Terminator I’ll be back.

Love this place so much! And to my surprise, they were open inside which was great because I always prefer eating in. Tables spaced good too.

Place is delicious!

I love Burnt ends and they definitely did not disappoint! They were really juicy and tender and I almost felt ashamed to dip them in there house BBQ sauce.The burnt end chili was also REALLY good and hearty! The chili did come loaded with cheese and chives so if you do not like that ask them to hold it.I've never seen corned beef at a BBQ joint before and had to try that as well and it was very good but just a little dry. The brisket and turkey was also a like dry but had good smoked flavor.We will certainly be eating there again!!

The burnt ends here are like little pieces of heaven making love to your tongue. We don't get to KC very often and given the number of BBQ choices here to say this is number one without a doubt says it all. We will be back again, and again, and again!

This is my second visit to the Hawg Jaw and they did not disappoint. The burnt ends are nothing short of amazing. They literally melt in your mouth, I have lived in KC and Wichita since 2002 and as a consequence have eaten at several BBQ restaurants due to the fact I love this stuff! I am a self confessed carnivore, Hawg Jaw is my numero uno (NUMBER ONE) recommended place to eat in KC. I have tried several different BBQ places, some well known others not so much, but this place just serves absolute excellence on a plate, it doesn't come any better than this!
20:13 04 Apr 20
I don’t even do reviews, but this is the best bar b que I’ve had in Kansas City. the spicy and sweet bbq sauce is heat!!! Everything on me and my girls plate is really good.
23:37 30 Mar 20

Barbeque as it should be: tasty in a hole-in- atmosphere.
23:11 22 Feb 20
Loved it! Can’t believe I hadn’t heard of this place before! Great pulled pork.
20:39 22 Feb 20
We ate here for dinner on 2-21-20 and it was not too busy. I had a pulled pork and onion rings. I’d love to go back and try more items on the menu.Very casual and friendly environment.

Busy during lunch hours but still moves fairly quick so not a long wait either way. Best bbq in the northland in my opinion. Love the burnt ends and brisket here. The sides are all good but the Mac and cheese here is extraordinary definitely a must have. 3 bbq sauces for you to pick from. Overall a great bbq spot in the northland, you can’t go wrong with some Hawg Jaw.

Some of the best BBQ I have ever had. We were here on business and were told we had to come here by a friend. I ordered a half a rack of ribs and they were some of the best I have ever had. Meat was almost falling off and they tasted amazing. The service was great. Food was ready in only a few minutes. Maybe only downside is there isn’t much parking outside but other that that if you are in the area you need to stop by and have lunch here!
13:57 09 Feb 20
No complaints here!!! Outstanding bbq
01:12 08 Feb 20
A medium Brisket/Italian sausage sandwich that FILLS you up for $7.99??? What's not to love?? And the Brisket was SO SO tender! Sauces are so KC authentic😁
04:10 03 Feb 20
Always like this place. Great food.

I was thoroughly impressed with Hawg Jaws! I was recently in town from Tulsa, OK visiting friends and we decided to try Hawg Jaws for dinner. All of the meats were flavorful, in addition to each BBQ sauce being uniquely different. I also tried the sweet potato fries which were presented with marshmallow fluff. I was initially apprehensive, but it was surprisingly delicious! I'll def. be stopping by again next time I'm in town!
02:17 27 Jan 20
Awesome bbq and service. Handicap friendly and just a good place to be.

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.😊
01:43 02 Jan 20
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..

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!

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!

00:09 20 Jun 20
Glad to see them open for eat in lunch. I had a brisket & ham sandwich, fries & beans. Sandwich & fries were excellent. Beans were ok. Maybe it was the sauce in them, just a flavor I did not care for. Not much meat in them either. It had been a long time between visits. I will go again.
02:12 13 Jun 20
Food was terrific! Fill up your hand sanitizer dispenser and wipe down the tables please!😊

Nice food beans ok update yes I had the burnt ends
16:25 28 Feb 20
Very good BBQ, and not so well known that you have a 30 minute line to get it.Edit: we've been back a few times now and every time it's great. I am addicted to The Italian Hawg. It's a perfect sandwich, and it's unlike anything you can find at any other bbq joint in KC. That doesn't mean they don't do the traditional great as well though. I love their brisket, I've never received a poorly cut/overly fatty rib, and while their burnt ends are occasionally a bit salty for my preference their sauces are great. Good seasoning, great smoking, great sauces, great butchering, and great beer selection. We've also found out you can go next door to Big Rip Brewery to order from their kiosk and that's fast becoming one of our favorite places to hang out in the Northland.
00:33 25 Feb 20
Great bbq at a reasonable price the only negative is the PARKING. Very hard to find parking.

Good, I couldn't find a sauce I really liked.
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...Some of the BEST BBQIN ALL OF KANSAS CITY...!!!!!!Had it the other night...Wife had a succulent Turkey Sandwich and I had for the 1st time, though I've had it before separately, an Italian Sausage & Turkey Sandwich with theirSweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce...And it was truly a great sandwich...!!!!Thank you to the Silvio Brothers for another greatBBQ Joint in North KC...!!!!!!!!!!
I had a medium burnt and sandwich with buffalo slaw. The best smoked meat needs no sauce. The sauce was very good, but definitely not needed. It only made the experience better! Such great flavor and tender texture to the meat. I will be back for sure! Thanks to Nick and the Hawg Jaw crew for some great kc barbecue!
We are here today and let me tell you, the burnt ends are delicious! They are super tender, and they have an amazing crust on some of them that is delicious! I would definitely go back! And to top it off there is a brewery right next to it. Beer, BBQ, repeat!
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.
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 👍
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 �
