We're no strangers to gas.
"Big Ben's BBQ Station is a critically-acclaimed BBQ dine-in and drive-thru owned by Benjamin Weaver. We've been serving the south-east Kansas and south-west corner of Missouri since 2011. Before settling in Carthage, Missouri, the restaurant operated out of two rundown gas stations. In Cherokee, Kansas, the restaurant seen success out of an old gas station on U.S. Route 400. With high demand, we relocated to Pittsburg, Kansas. Big Ben's, in another gas station, gained widespread success. Wanting to move back to his hometown in Carthage, Ben decided to move the restaurant one last time to its current resting place, this time in its own building sitting across from a gas station. Now with the restaurant established in Carthage, Big Ben's seeks to capture the hearts of BBQ lovers around the entire Joplin Area."
