Authentic, All-American Barbeque
We love what we do at Delano BBQ Co.
Authentic smoking. That's what we do best.
And you can taste it.
We love to smoke and we love to do it the old-fashioned way. No pellet stoves here. We fire up the smokers without any chemicals and get the oak, hickory, and pecan woods smoking early each morning through patience and dedication.
We don't really believe in shortcuts - just about everything is made in-house, from the award-winning rub to our sauces, our famous Potato Salad (we have a family who drives in to get it from Pratt!), and even our homemade Ranch salad dressing.
Cutting corners just isn't our style.
We've been around in one form or another since 1994. Some of our team have been around for years - as early as 2003 - and that kind of dedication is rare in the restaurant business. Why are we here? We love barbeque and we love feeding the people of Wichita.
We're small. Delano Barbeque Company is a tiny but mighty, hole-in-the-wall, barbeque joint in Historic Delano, Wichita. We are family-owned and, in many ways, a family here, too. We don't want to become a franchise - we're happy making great food for great folks. Right here.
Park close and follow your nose to our spot right on Douglas. Come on up to the register for traditional counter-service and order up some of the best Craft BBQ north of Texas.
Our specialties include:
Succulent Brisket sourced from Kansas and Nebraska
Our signature "meat candy," Pork Belly Burnt Ends (Wednesdays only!)
Tender Ribs so full of robust flavor you don't really need any sauce
Our popular juicy and mild Pulled Pork
Legendary Food. Great Prices.
You can't buy happiness but you can buy barbeque, and that's kinda the same thing.

The brisket is the best I've had in Wichita. Great selection of sides. Our expectations have been exceeded and very satisfied with the curbside pickup and service as well.

I'm honest when I say this was the absolute best food I've ever had. I've already talked about coming back to Wichita purely for this restaurant. Keep up the great work and I can't wait to come back! If I lived in town I would be there every week.

The food was great (best fries ever). Prices were spot on. Have a great kids menu selection and salad option if looking for something a little healthier.

Some good BBQ. Good atmosphere. The okra and burnt ends are amazing and the coconut tea was great. Definitely one of the top BBQ joints around.

Some of the best Barbeque not only in Wichita, but in Kansas as a whole. They catered my wedding with their beef brisket and it was incredible

I love the meats the most- flavourful, smoked and juicy. When you can eat meat without drowning it in sauce you know it's good.
