Kansas City – Snead’s BBQ
Snead’s Bar-B-Q, located right near the border of Kansas and Missouri at 171st and Holmes, is an iconic Kansas City Classic. Bill Snead built the restaurant and brick pit (still used to this day) in 1956. Two additions later, and the restaurant will seat 200 people!
While the interior takes you back in time a bit, so does the barbecue. It is on par with two other Kansas City classics, Gates Bar B-Q and Arthur Bryant’s.
Fellow blogger Mike and I ordered as much pork as we could eat, including ribs, pulled pork and ham. We also had sides including the beans, which according to their website “The smoke flavor in the bar-b-que beans and sauces is obtained by cooking them in large kettles in the brick pit.” Speaking of flavor, their sauce is “is an original recipe of Mr. Sneads dating back to 1956.”
If you are into Kansas City barbecue, you owe to yourself to try this iconic barbecue legend!
