While barbecue sauce can be used to power tractors or grease slip ‘n' slides, it’s best for making beans sing and chickens dance. Start a party on the tongue's floor with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 toward smoky barbecue eats and drinks at McKenna’s Blues, Booze and BBQ. Selected as one of Omaha’s Best Barbecue establishments, McKenna’s will apply a tasty glaze to your mouth while soaking you in a blues marinade.

McKenna’s Pacific Street location provides a dining experience filled with soulful tunes and meats smoked silly. Opened in 1991, the joint has been whipping up down-home menu items that would make your grandma try harder. Start off with appetizers such as the black-eyed-pea dip with chips ($5.49) and a full pound of smoked chicken thighs ($6.79), or opt for an order of 12 McKenna’s wings ($8.79) that come in flavors such as Louisiana double dip, Jamaican jerk, and three others. Sandwiches include the Virginia smoked ham with pepper jack cheese ($7.39), smoked pork loin ($7.39), and barbecue smoked sausage ($7.29).

If your stomach won’t stop grumblin’ the blues, specials such as the barbecue smoked brisket ($13.29) and McKenna’s four way (barbecue smoked pork baby back ribs, chicken, brisket, and sausage, $19.29) are served with two sides, corn on the cob, and jalapeno cornbread. A variety of sides are available as well, such as the red cabbage slaw ($1.99), cottage cheese ($1.59), and baby red-potato salad ($1.99). Make sure everything goes down nice and smooth with a bottled or draught beer or a glass of wine ($5-$9.50).

Self-induced barbecue overload can lead to smoke permeating from your ears, for which the only cure is the soothing sound of blues guitar riffage. With charming Louisiana Roadhouse-styled décor and a stage showcasing excellent blues talent, McKenna’s will keep you coming back and finally put a dent in your brimming stash of handy wipes.


Dine.com reviewers give McKenna's Blues, Booze & BBQ a tad more than four stars, Kudzu reviewers and nine Yelpers give four, two Judy's Bookers give 3.8, the food earned two rahs from BooRah, and CityVoters made it a second-place winner for Best Barbecue in the area:

  • I really enjoy their house BBQ brisket melt in your mouth brisket served with good assortment of accompanying fare. The ribs and other BBQ was really good. Service was good too. I was pleased with the music and got into it. – Daniel M., dine.com
  • McKenna's has truly great barbeque. They serve a generous portion of whatever you select and their side dishes are the perfect compliment to their slightly spicy yet not sweet sauce. – Mary H., Judy's Book
  • Everyone has different taste in BBQ, and this isn't one of our absolute favorites, but the music and the atmosphere are great and make it worth a stop. – tessiegirl, Kudzu
