Best BBQ in the Bay Area by Robert R via Insider Pages on 4/29/2009

This place rocks. Found em' years ago and look forward to returning every time. The sauces are sweet and authentic with just the right amount of tang. The sausage is excellent. Beware the HOT sauce , this stuff is for professionals only !!…

Classic Old-School BBQ by Cheryl S via Insider Pages on 2/9/2009

There are only two spots (both in Berkeley) where my husband will go for BBQ chicken and KCs is one of them. Located in the heart of Berkeley, KCs does Kansas City-style barbecue proud! The sauce is a little sweeter than most West Coast…

The BBQ I measure all others by by denebquarlo via Citysearch on 7/14/2007

I have been going to this BBQ for years! With all of the others available in the East Bay, it has been the only one return too. Now that I am living over 100 miles away in Placer County there are two things I notice. \r 1. When I mention…

Best Links in the county.... by donberry via Citysearch on 7/2/2007

This resturant (rib joint) is very unique. The setting is antique photos, radios, stoves, and furniture. The recipe for the links is handed down through the family and is made from fresh meat versus, what I call, the standard "Hot Dog"…

I lived in Kansas City and this in not good Barbeque! by jack_n_marin via Citysearch on 9/26/2006

This is not good barbeque. The sides were horrible and the atmosphere was depressing. There is much better barbeque up the road in Emeryville. I would never go back. I was hoping this place would be like the delicious barbeque I use to…

Two way by akamickey via Citysearch on 8/22/2006

The sauce has the right amount of spice. The 2 way is the best bet. Friendly atmosphere with great tasting BBQ!!!!

Oh my! This is BBQ at it's best by dhanjal via Citysearch on 12/28/2005

I had the ribs. They were moist, tender and delicious! The BBQ sauce had a nice kick to it that enhanced the whole eating experience. There were some sides but I was so stuffed with ribs I could find any room for them! The service…

Don't cost alot but HIT THE SPOT by jamesdee3080 via Citysearch on 4/29/2005

I went to KC's BBQ last week because it was next to a tire shop on San Pablo Ave in Berkeley, and I had a flat. I love BBQ but I had read the last rating and it did not look to good. Well, THIS BBQ is great. Maybe the guy went on a off…

Bad BBQ by mantiskf via Citysearch on 11/4/2004

The links were hard and dry, the ribs were burnt on the outside and raw on the inside. This was my worst BBQ experience ever. Not to mention the rude service. I'm waiting until the next time I go to Kansas City before I ever have KC BBQ…

Spicey Q! by howudoinsf via Citysearch on 4/11/2004

Stopped by for lunch today and ordered up a 3-way combo platter with 3 pork ribs, links and brisket smothered in a smooth sauce. All the meats were tender and well-smoked. Sauce was tangy and spicy, good but I would have preferred a bit…

Best in the West by kmet44 via Citysearch on 11/7/2002

I have been coming to KC's for Almost 20 years, and it has never disappointed me. The quality is always the same, the Q is always good, I can't say more.

delious,fabulous by ANNLALYNN via Citysearch on 8/30/2002

The barb-Q has never lost it's favor over the past 30 years. That's saying something! It is still the best Q in town.

Best in the BAY by masterQ via Citysearch on 8/29/2002

The meat is tender, smoked well and the staff is friendly. It's like going to Grandma's house. This is the best food I have ever had, not to mention the delicious (Quelicious) sauce it's to die for!!! Good for casual parties, groups, and…

Honey you want KC's tonite? by miarashaan via Citysearch on 8/28/2002

I hear "Honey, you want KC's tonite?", at least once a week!! My husband and I enjoy the sliced beef, links, ribs and of course the chicken. The sauce just gets better and better with time. This is a wonderful family restaurant with…

Nobody does it better by dmitriw via Citysearch on 8/28/2002

Tender, succulent meat. Homemade links. Ribs where the flavorful meat just falls off the bone. Great sauce - try their hot sauce if you dare! Friendly service. Fun atmosphere. When you eat in, check out the antiques from the…

They make their own links! by TNewton via Citysearch on 8/29/2002

Ummm good. If you haven't tried KC Barb-Q you don't know what you are missing. The meat falls off of the bone. This is the first que that I've tasted that doesn't have to have sauce! There's a nice smoked flavor throughout the meat. Try…
