Smokin' Guns BBQ opens new restaurant

Smokin’ Guns BBQ will celebrate the opening of its new facility at 1218 Swift in North Kansas City with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, January 4, 8:00 – 9:30.

The intimate location where Smokin’ Guns BBQ has served its famous menu for the past 9 years has been replaced with a large new facility next door at 1218 Swift in North Kansas City. The same delicious BBQ which has won numerous BBQ contests and attracted Diners, Drive-ins and Dives as well as hundreds of devoted fans will continue to be the main attraction.

The new Smokin’ Guns BBQ building has a first floor dining room that will seat up to 100 people vs 48 in the old restaurant. An adjacent dining area/bar area can seat another 60 people. The new kitchen is 3,000 sq. ft., which is only slightly smaller than the previous entire facility.

The kitchen will serve dine-in customers as well as carryout and catering. A separate entrance and line will be used for paying for and picking up carryout orders. Dine-in customers will be seated and orders taken and served by servers.

An upstairs event room with a great view of the downtown Kansas City skyline through large “garage” doors can seat up to 80 people. Another attraction of the new facility is an upstairs open air “patio” for dining and events just outside the upstairs event room, also with a panoramic view of the KC downtown skyline. It also features a covered band stand.
