Have been dining here off & on since the 1970's. Atmosphere is rustic-comfortable (think formica tables-1950's, it's a BBQ joint, drawing much of it's clientel from surrounding farming communities.) Should be listed under "Kansas City" because it rivals many well known BBQ institutions in that fair city. It is a fair drive out there, but well worth the trip (171st and Holmes on the far South & East side of KC.) My wife and I lived in the K.C. area for almost 40 years and had favorite BBQ places come & go until they were discovered and the quality diminished due to sheer volume of servings produced; this place remains somewhat undiscovered because of it's distance from the City and somewhat hard to get-to location (try Mo. Rt.. 58 out of Belton and you will understand where I am coming from.) Now the culinary review; bear with me!
Our party of six (four adults and two children) had BBQ chicken, two orders of Brownies, (burnt ends-but not burnt), a children's sliced brisket sandwich and a children's grilled cheese sandwich plate. All entrees were very good and the skin-on french fries were outstanding. The picky-eater Children ate as one might expect, but tried everything on their plates. Total bill for six patrons? About $50. What a bargain!
Somethings never change and Snead's seems to be one of them! We highly recommend and we will continue to patronize them as long as the family keeps this restaurant going!
