Filling Station BBQ is a uniquely nostalgic family oriented and owned business located in historic downtown Lee's Summit. The building itself opened as a Texaco gas station in the 1930's and later became a garden shop. In 1999 the gas station was renovated into a BBQ restaurant which included an onsite smoker. The original gas station design was retained outside and is currently acknowledged by the Historical Register. The nostalgic interior is decorated with vintage signs, pictures and memorabilia from the old gas station days. Outside you will find colorful seating provided for those spring,summer and fall days when you just don't want to go inside.
Doug Carnes, the current owner, grew up in Lee's Summit, where Kansas City Barbeque had a huge impact on his life as a child. Since returning home to become owner/manager of the Filling Station BBQ, Doug has made it his goal to provide a family atmosphere, flavorful, good-quality barbeque and excellent, friendly service. All meats are smoked fresh on site. Most sides are homemade. Delivery and Catering services are also available.
Please stop by and enjoy some barbque.
