Shawnee – Blind Box BBQ
Recently I had the pleasure of trying a new BBQ place here in the KC metro called “Blind Box BBQ”. It’s pretty easy to find if you’re in the area, as it is about 2.5 miles east of I-435, located off Shawnee Mission Parkway and Pflumm, in the Mill Creek Shopping Center. (3214 w 62nd Terrace, Shawnee)
People had been mostly raving about it online so I was pretty excited to get up there and try it out. I must say, if you enjoy lots of drink options, a lively atmosphere, and a nice clean place to eat, you maybe should be interested in Blind Box. I should also mention that the food was excellent.
I had the Combo #1 from the menu which included pork sausage and pork ribs, along with burnt ends and 2 sides. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich and my daughter had a ham sandwich (not pictured). I sampled the meat from both of their sandwiches and though it was awesome. The ham really stood out to me for some reason. It was way above average as far as ham goes in KC BBQ places! On my plate I found the ribs to be cooked perfectly and the sausage to be made with good quality meat and seasoned about right. The sides we had (onion straws, fries, beans) were all very, very good too.
I really wish I lived closer to Blind Box because it’s the type of place I could see myself going to regularly, but I do live close enough that I will for sure be back pretty soon to start trying some more of the menu items.
