I won't even sell somebody a barbecue unless they get cole slaw. If they want a barbecue and they don't want cole slaw, there's something wrong with that person. It all goes together. You've got to have cole slaw and hush puppies with barbecue.
Smoke Daddy's Review of Sneads Bar B-Q
My favorites here were the beans and ribs.
- 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?
- 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
