Table too small for 8 people with no effort to accommodate after complaining. Served 7 of us and waited for 15 minutes for the 8th person. Don’t place your entire order all at once because they are incapable of timing your meal. Appetizer arrived before our tap beers. Fortunately we waited to order the entrees. Pretty weak unless you’re just out bar hopping.

I thought $14.99 was excessive for a 32 Oz. Boulevard Wheat, otherwise enjoyed our experience.

Our food literally came out two minutes after we ordered it which makes you feel everything is already cut and just sitting there like a buffet. The food was cold so that didn't really help the experience.

Great quick lunch. Food is very good, service was quick but not disruptive to our conversation. Good solid bar-b-que but more than hat. We will be back!

Joe’s BBQ with sports! Location and ambiance are great. Menu did not have tacos but website definitely has pictures of tacos. The burnt end nachos and fried chicken sandwich were terrific.

Been to Joe’s for years and always the best bbq. Finally tried their other concept and it was amazing. Like BBQ and brews meets a sports bar. Great atmosphere with legendary BBQ.

Burnt ends were 50% fat. Taquitos were good, but quantity was minimal. Pork bbq was mushy. Not what I expected for the price and reputation. Great service though. Salad was good.

Great casual dining in the amazing Power and Light District. Food was good, but service was disorganized, seemed like several servers teaming and not communicating well. Food came out erratically, and I never received a beverage. Granted, it was a Saturday night and very busy. Overall the food was very good, and I enjoyed a visit with out of state family.

Your terms for noise level are not what I would choose. Energetic should actually be noisy. I think the televisions are fine but the sound does not need to be on, let alone high, and just causes unnecessary noise. Anyone can tell what is going on in a game without hearing the commentary; just look at the screen for ten seconds. The food was excellent and the service was quite good as well.

Food was amazing, as was the atmosphere. Unfortunately our waitress was not very attentive. Never asked if we wanted more drinks and took a very long while after sitting to take our food order. Fingers crossed that’s rare for their staff, cause the food was definitely worth going back for.

We visited during COVID- 19 so minimal patrons.
The service and food were excellent.
We had ribs and beef brisket. The Mexican street corner as a side was fabulous.

Good BBQ and drinks. We are from Ohio and were just passing through so do not eat BBQ much. Burnt Ends were the best! We ate out in the patio area and got to take in a local band. Nice atmosphere in the Power & Light district!

We dined at County Road Ice House to celebrate Father's Day and our wedding anniversary. It was the first time we dined in at a restaurant since the pandemic began, and it was perfect! The restaurant is spacious, allowing everyone to spread out, and the food was just as good as the Joe's Kansas City gas station location without the long line and small dining area. Plus, our server was excellent. We will definitely return!
