This quaint restraunt has been serving south Kansas City for decades. It is known for its BBQ in sandwiches and as a main dish. Their sauces are unique to their store and very tasty

I have had BBQ in many, many places and the old home feel of Sneads still appeals to me, as well as the "burnt ends" or "brownies" of beef. A loathes changed in the KC BBQ scene over the years- at the worst, most of...More

I wanted to love it. Got the "brownies" and they were good. Did not love the BBQ sauce. Fries were greasy and kids meal hamburger had too much spice on it. Decor was very outdated and the bathroom smelled so much like mold I was...More

KC’s reputation for the world’s best BBQ is well-deserved, so standard’s are high for good ‘que. Snead’s is ok but barely average by KC standards. Certainly not worth the long trip to its Belton location (near Loch Lloyd). Even if you live nearby, not sure...More

This was another let-down. Food was okay, but doesn't live up to being legendary KC BBQ. If you live in Belton or Lock Lloyd, this is close and decent. If you live anywhere else, don't waste your time.

Some friends recommended this place, but we were sorely disappointed. It's meh and so-so. Nothing great. The interior look like one of those throw-back places where the food makes up for the lack of decor? Except, the food is just as disappointing.
