Ft. Scott -Sugarfoot and Peaches BBQ
While out and about on a work trip recently, I found myself passing through Ft. Scott and decided that would be the day I finally stopped at “Sugarfoot and Peached BBQ”. It’s a place I long ago vowed I would eat at one day, and I’m definitely glad I did! “Sugarfoot and Peaches” sits on U.S. Hwy. 54, just about a mile east of U.S. Hwy 69, so it’s very easy to find, and very much worth the time to stop at, in my opinion.
Just look on the north side of the highway for the old white building with a big porch and a large white pig on the roof! When you see a place like that, there’s no mistaking what they’ll be serving! The indoor atmosphere was actually a bit different than what I expected as I was walking up to the door, but it didn’t disappoint either. Its rustic interior décor is accented by another large pig statue that greets you as you walk in, so it feels like a BBQ place for sure. The food didn’t disappoint either, which is the most important thing!
I had the “Dijon-chipotle pork loin” and the pulled pork for my two meats, along with two sides (fries and beans). I found both of the meats to be delicious and high quality. The pork loin was lean, tender, and cooked to perfection, and paired really well with the sweet BBQ sauce that was on the table. The pulled pork was served “wet”, (already had bbq sauce on it) which is something I don’t normally prefer, but the quality of the meat and the flavor of the smoke came right through and mixed with the light coating of sauce to be quite tasty. The fries and beans, a part of any BBQ meal that cannot be overlooked, were exceptional, as were the sauces that were provided.
This place might be a bit out of the way for some of you, but if you ever find yourself in Ft. Scott, take a few minutes and stop in at one of the many hidden gems in southeastern Kansas.
