Restaurant Review: SLAPS BBQ

No nonsense approach to BBQ.

  Every once in a while when a new restaurant opens they will quickly develop an almost fanatical following. To achieve this feat requires them to offer a superior product or service to their customers. It is almost magical to watch this process, since it only happens on rare occasions. This is exactly what happened with SLAP's BBQ. Brothers Mike and Joe Pearce began the restaurant after years on the barbecue competition circuit. Their team name is Squeal Like A Pig, from which S.L.A.P.'s derived. These two have won numerous competitions, and still compete in 25 or more events annually. They do this to help keep their skills honed.

The Sampler Plate is plenty for at least two adults.

  The old saying "The proof is in the pudding" could be altered to say in the smoke. These guys have got their barbecue skills down to an art form, and serve it up Monday through Saturday starting at 11:00 in the morning. Their hours are listed as being open until 7:00, but they usually sell out long before that. Fortunately, they have added the feature to pre-order, so you can be sure to get some of this deliciousness.

3 Ribs and Burnt Ends make for a filling lunch.
  Besides the normal offerings,  SLAP's serves up turkey, brisket, pork, sausage, and burnt ends by the pound. They offer a handful of side dishes, which include baked beans made with their sauce, as well as a delicious version of cheesy corn. Located at 553 Central Avenue, in the heart of KCK, SLAP's BBQ strives to make the best product they can provide every day. Be sure to make plans to try them out, but you may want to pre-order for piece of mind. Find out how at
