This is our first time at Snead's, though it has been there since about the start of time.....had lunch and the server was attentive and our sandwiches (both had BBQ brisket) and fries came out very hot! The fries are homemade without being covered by loads of seasoning. They are plain which I do appreciate. The beef was very tasty... 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.

Great BBQ, reasonably priced and served quickly. Will definitely return. It would be nice to have a more varied choice of drinks but can't fault the food.

This is a throwback to an bygone era. A traditional place to eat BBQ with a wood paneled dining area, divided into two sections (the first surrounds the entrance and is more like a bar) with regular tables, booths and metal chairs. Here for lunch and it looks as though this is popular with the local construction crews who were... More

The burnt ends (brownies) are awesome here. Add some baked beans, French fries, cole slaw, and beer -- doesn't get any better.

Went here for lunch and found all you can eat rib tips on Wednesday. Very tasty. Like someone lese said, I'm watching carbs, so I only tasted the beans. I thought they were a little sweet, but my lunch partner really liked them. And try as I might, I couldn't avoid all of the hand cut french fries, where (after... More

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 them a lot. I highly recommed Snead's!!

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. Brisket was a tad on the dry side, but the beef brownie ( basically a... More

Wasn't busy on a Thursday evening. Sampler was a good selection. Beans were really good. Fries were great, too. Sauce on the table was good. It's "Pepsi" area.
