Mr. Lunch Kansas City - Mix 93.3


Hawg Jaw Fritz

BBQ in Kansas City can be a tricky business.  Many have come and gone.  Some of the ones that have gone had been pretty good.  So, when Rocket said let's go to lunch in Riverside, I have a BBQ place you need to check out, I was there.  Hawg Jaw Fritz started out in BBQ contests and did quite well (the American Royal trophies are in the ordering area) and decided to venture into catering and this restaurant.  Originally a gas station, the original format was carryout only.  After a little modification, tables were added.  When you walk in you are greeted by the workers in a glad to see you kind of way.  They take your order and then call your name when it is ready.  Pretty simple format that works very well with little waiting.  The 2 dining areas are very clean and bright with somebody from the staff on the floor almost all the time checking to make sure everything is clean and that customers are happy.  Now for the food. I ordered the "Working Folk's Special".  Which is a drink, a side (beans, slaw, fries,etc) and your choice of meat.  I went with the pork.  (The selections are sausage, brisket, ends, pork, ham or turkey.)   Everything was great.  The pork was moist and flavorful with just the right amount of smoke.  The fries, and I can be critical of most fries, were great.  Rocket had the ends sandwich and also gave it high marks.  Pricing is $7 and up.  My meal cost right around $10.  We were there on a Tuesday and the line usually had around 5 people in it at all times, but it moves very quickly, so it is easy to get in and out over your lunch hour.  Hawg Jaw Fritz's is easy to get to.  It is just up the street from Red X on the east side of the street.  You can get there in 5 minutes from the Broadway Bridge.  Hawg Jaw Fritz 4403 NW Gateway Avenue Riverside, MO 64150 Phone: (816) 741-4294
