About the Restaurant
Hillsdale Bank Bar B.Q. has been serving up award-winning Kansas City barbeque since 1989. Located in the historic State Bank building of Hillsdale, Kansas, the restaurant provides a mix of great food in a unique setting with small-town atmosphere. Hillsdale Bank Bar B.Q. is within a thirty-minute drive of much of the Kansas City Metro area and is a favorite weekend destination for barbeque lovers.
The Hillsdale State Bank building (which was built in 1906 and operated as a bank until The Depression) still boasts many of its original features, including antique brick walls, a tin ceiling and the original bank vault. The restaurant has added an authentic railroad caboose for additional seating as well as an outdoor garden with patio seating.
About the Food
Family owned and operated, at Hillsdale Bank Bar B.Q. we take pride in serving our customers only the finest and freshest foods available. Our meats come fresh, never frozen and are smoked with 100% hickory (never gas) to ensure that you get one-of-a-kind quality and flavor. Our wood-fired pizzas are made from scratch every night and cooked in a hand-built firebrick oven using 100% oak wood.
Our most popular items include our tender pulled pork, our mouth-watering pulled pork burnt ends, our succulent spare or baby back ribs and, of course, our bbq-style or vegetarian-style wood-fired pizza.

At Hillsdale Bank Bar B.Q., we love being able to offer our customers the freshest ingredients possible. It is important to us to ensure that our food is also as healthy as possible. We NEVER add rubs or salts to our meats… nor do we salt our fresh cut fries. We let you decide if your taste desires salt. We grow our own seasonal vegetables for pizzas and salads. We serve hormone-free chickens, our hamburger meat is ground at a small, local facility, we use Jasper’s Italian Sausage on our pizzas and buy local whenever possible.
