Davis BBQ Restaurant & Animal Barn

January 2024: Closed for renovations until Spring 2024……stay tuned!


(December 2020) We couldn’t be more excited for the brand new, year-round Davis BBQ Restaurant & Animal Barn at Davis Farmland! Families are in for a real treat, because Davis is known for their famous Kansas City BBQ that is served each fall at their festivals. And they delivered Friday night when we got a special pre-opening sneak peek.

The Food

On the menu, you will find platters, sandwiches, bowls, kids meals, and salads. We are pleased to see gluten free, keto and vegan menu items too! And they have a great selection of sides including smoked bone in wings. There is something for everyone.

But how does one decide? They recommended the burnt ends platter for me. The beef was so tender that I didn’t need a knife. And the flavors!  I selected roasted vegetables and onion straws for sides. The platter also came with pickles, coleslaw and Texas Toast.  Everything was fabulous.

The award-winning Pit Master Josh came by to check on me and explained the process of preparing the meat. Between the rubs and the wood preparation, the meat is prepared all week before it is finally cooked and served to the guests. Josh expressed how thrilled he is to be creating these mouth-watering meals at Davis BBQ. Being part of the family business is a joy for him. We are glad you are there too, Josh!

The Restaurant
Davis BBQ is located on the beautiful 250-acre family farm. The restaurant offers well planned indoor and outdoor dining complete with TVs. The spacious indoor space has booths with plexiglass barriers so diners will feel safe. The pretty outdoor space features heaters to keep diners warm in cooler months. Since the restaurant has its own entrance, tickets to farmland are not required.

They have framed art of Davis Farmland animals and of the farm at each booth for atmosphere and educational family discussion. What a great idea!

The Animals
For the first time, guests can enjoy getting up close with the farm animals during the winter months (as well as year round) in their new Animal Barn.  Tonight the guests visited with Drama, the llama, an assortment of goats, sheep, a calf, and a Scottish Highland Cow.
The featured animals will change so families can meet different animals when they come back. Dining at Davis BBQ for lunch or dinner will get you access to the animal barn where there will always be a small collection of farmland animals. We think this is a great way to make some special family memories. Because we all miss the farmland off-season, right? The animal barn is open for diners daily.

WCKC Pro Tip: Say “yes” to the homemade fresh beignets! They offer an assortment of desserts, but we recommend their daily, freshly-made beignets, served with chocolate sauce. Yum!

Davis BBQ opened December 2020 for Indoor Dining, Outdoor Patio Dining, Carry Out & Curbside.
They also serve beer, wine and mixed drinks. Looking for take out? Check out their to-go family meals!
