If people leave your restaurant talking about how good your sauce is, you failed

Smoke Daddy's Review of Sneads Bar B-Q


My favorites here were the beans and ribs.

MAIN FARE:Sneads Spread

  • Brisket - Not sliced paper thin.  Fairly tender, but a little dry and chewy on the finish.  Needs the sauce.
  • Burnt Ends - Good... if you get the right ones!
  • Rib - Tender and fully rendered.  A little greasy, but nearly falling off the bone.
  • Pork - Tender & moist. Nice.
  • Fact: They cook and serve the meat "naked"... using no rub or seasonings
  • Opinion:  This is a nice sentiment/tradition, but using a little spice can compliment the flavor of the meat and make your taste buds sing.  Why not present your product in the best possible light?


Sneads Pit

  • Beans - Sweet with some onions and beefy bits.  Good.
  • Potato Salad - Firm potatoes. Mustard-based with some mayo
  • Slaw - Creamy and not too sweet. OK
  • Regular Sauce - Sweet, sweet, sweet... with a 'tang' on the finish. Smooth texture.
  • Hot Sauce - More bold and lumpy, with visible spices - similar to Bryant's


  • Texas Monthly BBQ Issue on the wall - Snead's was listed as a KC joint
  • Down-home, quaint decor with a woman's touch
  • Seating area contains simple booths, plus tables and chairs
  • Paper placemats and napkins
  • Organic growth evident - dining hall was added to original building
  • Starting to fill up for dinner at 6pm
