Q39 Midtown – Kansas City BBQ
Our original location resides in Kansas City’s Midtown, nestled between the historic Westport neighborhood and the vibrant Crossroads arts district. 39th Street is the heart of Midtown and home to a variety of locally-owned shops and restaurants. Q39 Midtown features a rustic-urban style with an energetic dining area, friendly full-service bar, and plenty of free parking. Join us and see for yourself what the best Midtown BBQ in Kansas City looks like.
The open scratch kitchen at Q39 boasts a pair of hickory-fired smokers and an oak-fired grill to serve up some of the best barbecue, steaks, burgers, and seafood you’ll find around. From the sauces and rubs to the slaw on the side, everything’s made in-house, with the exception of our bread, which we source from local bakeries. Our day begins early in the morning as we start preparing for lunch, and soon after we are ready to put in the dinner meats—ensuring each meal is fresh and ready to be served at the perfect moment.
Sunday – Thursday 11a-9p & Friday – Saturday 11a-10p (dine-in & carry out)
Join us for lunch from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and get your fix with a competition barbecue plate, a specialty BBQ sandwich, or one of our legendary brisket burgers. When dinner comes around, you’ll also find wood-fired steak, salmon, and chicken ready, along with jumbo beef short rib. Kids ages 10 and under can enjoy a perfectly portioned BBQ sandwich, silly burger, chicken tenders, or gooey mac ‘n cheese, each coming with a side of fries or applesauce and a drink.
To Go Menu
Take your Q to-go! Our carryout menu has many of the same sandwiches, burgers, and sides available for you to pick up for a satisfying, perfectly-sized meal. Get a Fast and Fresh plate with your choice of sandwich and side during the lunch rush, or call in and order a helping of high-quality smoked meats to take with you back home, to the office, or for a party.
