Snead's is an out of the way BBQ restaurant but worth going to. The BBQ beans are sweet with molasses. I like the Log sandwich which is a mixture of crumbled meats. The fries are fresh cut and some of the best I've eaten. Be...More

Been going to Sneads since I was a little girl. It has always had the BEST BBQ around. It still is. Do wish they would go back to serving toast instead of bread. Best slaw and French fries.

From north Kansas City, MO it's about a 40 minute drive to Snead's but it's well worth it. I ordered the half slab of ribs with hot BBQ sauce and they were delicious!! My dad ordered the burnt ends (which are his favorite) he enjoyed...More

Hubby is from KC but hadn't been to Sneads in years. It's nothing fancy almost like a big room with booths, but the food was great. I like to try BBQ without sauce-after all it's the meat, right? I had the beef "brownies" and brisket....More
