One of Kansas City’s renowned barbecue restaurants, Q39, is celebrating their ninth year in business by bringing back some customer favorites. The restaurant has a longstanding legacy due to the chef’s championship background and a unique barbecue method, a hybrid of wood-fire grilling. The combination landed them on our Top 40 Best Restaurant’s list. For the entire month of April, the menu will showcase a few throwback dishes as well as an exclusive Chef’s Dinner to highlight the restaurant’s made-from-scratch cooking tradition. 

The Chef’s Dinner is comprised of four courses conceptualized by Chef Philip Thompson, who has been diligently carrying on the legacy of the late founder of Q39, Rob Magee. For $75 per person, the dinner will include a Throwback Sampler, a BLT salad, smoked lamb entrée with Parisi coffee rub, and a chocolate espresso brownie sundae topped with André’s Kansas City Whiskey sauce. Craft drink pairing will accompany each course. The dinner will take place at the original Midtown location on April 18. Make reservations here.

Weekly specials are available only during the week and will be featured at both locations and here they are:

Week 1: Buffalo cauliflower | house ranch dressing, April 1 – April 8.

Week 2: Smoked and fried chicken | potato salad | granny smith apple slaw, April 9 – April 15.
