History you can taste.

Mr. Snead designed and constructed both the original building (1956) and the expansion (1991). The building was made of concrete; pouring the walls flat, then raising them and tying them together with steel and more concrete. The inside walls of the original dining room are Missouri walnut and the counter finished in cherry wood. The original dining room sat 80 customers. In 1972, Mr. Snead added a second room with a brick fireplace. The walls were filled with windows that provided a beautiful outdoor view. Here you can find a Burr Oak tree that was recognized by the Department of Conservation as a Bicentennial tree. In 1976 it was at least 200 years old. Finally, in 1991, Mr. Snead added the third dining room with a large stone fireplace and another wall of windows.

Today, Sneads Bar-B-Que will seat over 200 customers. Hickory shines in the flavor of our smoked meats. The original hot bar-b-que sauce is an original recipe of Mr. Sneads dating back to 1956. Mr. Snead passed away in 1994, but Sneads Bar-B-Q continues to provide great tasting hickory smoked meats and home-made sides!

At 171st and Holmes since 1956.
