KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Plowboys Barbeque, the exclusive barbecue of Arrowhead Stadium for five years, with locations in Blue Springs and Kansas City, Missouri, announced its locations will close their doors on Aug. 14.

The decision to close the restaurant, which has been a barbecue staple in the KC area since its Blue Springs location first opened in 2013, comes as its operations refocus to Plowboys Foods, a collection of rubs and sauces, according to a press release.

“We are very proud of what Plowboys accomplished: three metro restaurant locations spanning both sides of the state line, the only BBQ restaurant in the downtown loop, a franchise restaurant in Lincoln, Neb., plus five years as the exclusive barbeque of the Chiefs at Arrowhead,” founder Todd Johns said.

Plowboys downtown location opened in 2015. An Overland Park location launched in 2019, before closing its doors in December 2021 due to pandemic woes.
