I've enjoyed the food so many times and I must comment on how GOOD it is. I need to go in person sometime soon and recommend you do the same.

“Great 'cue, easy access and close to Post”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

I like Barbecue, I like variety, and I like uniqueness, Sweetwater has all the above. Rite off I-44, and not to correct an earlier reviewer, on one of the original legs of Route 66. In fact, they occupy an original Route 66 building.
Food is good, many choices and combos. I always opt for the 3 meat combo, variety. They claim a southern Missouri style, uniqueness, mix your sweet KC style with a middle Tennessee base. Ribs, are, Awesome, like the Taters too.
Close to Fort Wood, exit 163 off I-44 on south outer road. Truckstop across Hwy, easy bobtail access. Motorcyclists be aware, Great food, GRAVEL Lot. Not far from Devils Elbow

“Real man food”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

Excellent barbecue. Especially recommend the three-meat combo with ribs, pulled pork and beef brisket. Also, the Fried Spuds are a delicious step-up from french fries. The lady taking orders is a little cranky, but the quality and generous portions of food make up for that. Great place to take your newly graduated soldier.

“Good BBQ and great people who run it!”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

I always have the combo meat platter 'cause I can never make up my mind which one to get. It's a bit out of the way off of old Route 66, but worth it.
