Kansas City Barbeque, home of the bar scene in Top Gun, is a restaurant and bar located in the heart of bustling Harbor Drive. Located across Harbor Drive from Seaport Village and just down the street from USS Midway. They have become infamous for their on-site slow-smoked bbq giving it a one-of-a-kind flavor. Revered by aficionados for their special sauces, rubs, and “burnt ends” of briskets known for their flavor! Daily Happy Hour on draft beer & delicious snacks from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm!
It was very busy at the time I went in so the wait was a little long but the experience is worth it. I like the energy... of the bar, every server is very comfortably casual and nice.It's much easier to do a to-go order than it is to get a table.I hope these menus help folk, as it was difficult for me personally to read with what was already there.read more
Kansas City BBQ is the best bar in San Diego, in my opinion.From Cindy and Martin, to Chris, Melissa, Jennifer, Nina,... Jersey and Mike, the folks that work here make it a memorable experience, in and of itself.Add to that, a great menu, with great food, (the potato salad is incredible!), it is located in a museum!Stop in and say " Hi"! They will be glad to see you.read more

What a fun bar to visit. All of the paraphernalia of the original Top Gun movie is hear. It appears as a tiny dive bar... but it is so much more.The BBQ is so tender and delicious! We ordered a pulled pork sandwich and pork ribs. Both were excellent and love their BBQ sauce.Bartenders are great and there is a large variety of tap beers available including some of the local favorites. Prices are decent $$ and again the BBQ is delicious!read more
Fun BBQ joint in San Diego. Meats are smoked with a dry rub with tomato based and vinegar based BBQ sauce. Excellent... meat and vinegar based slaw. Fries good according to the teenaged assistant reviewer. Potato salad was a bit bland. Mac and cheese not bad but have had better. Excellent customer service. Bonus is looking at the memorabilia from Top Gun and other awesome military memorabilia.read more
