Bear’s Smokehouse serves delicious Kansas City-style barbecue cafeteria style, and it is GOOD. It’s hard to decide what to order but options like the two and three meat combos make it much easier. Otherwise you have to choose brisket over turkey, or sausage over pulled pork or kielbasa over burnt ends and that’s just not fair. There are lots of sides to choose; definitely get the broccoli slaw. Bear’s is BYOB, for now, and also OMG BBQ. Bear’s will offer downtown delivery.
