Hawg Jaw Fritz BBQ - Handmade in the Heartland

Hawg Jaw Fritz BBQ

 Hi Friends! I'm back this afternoon with another great restaurant recommendation for Kansas City.  Everyone is well aware that KC is best known for great BBQ and so when yet another establishment opened up i had my doubts.  It seems like there are too many places to count these days! Well If you are in the northland and hankering for a pulled pork sandwich i highly recommend trying out Hawg Jaw Fritz in Riverside.  It was started about 2 years ago by a mother and 2 daughter team who had been winning bbq competitions for a while it seems. (see that frame with all those ribbons in the background of the photo below?) I got the pulled pork with mac & cheese and Matt ordered the Full Dresser, which we thought would come on a plate with 6 different samples of meat but was a sandwich, and huge one to boot! I thought my pulled pork was better than (dare i say it) Oklahoma Joe's, the sauces they make in house are delicious and the mac and cheese was good enough to order on it's own!  Unfortunately we went on a rainy day and didn't have the opportunity to sit on their spacious patio, but no need to worry- i'll be back!

We love it too but only made it about 3 times. You're right about the Mac n cheese that's what I get for the kids. It's so good! And the service there was always so good. They'd bring us more cookies an pickles for the kids and were very helpful.
