“Street bbq tacos”
Review of SLAP's BBQ

SLAP's BBQ
Ranked #2 of 299 Restaurants in Kansas City
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Slap's BBQ (Squeal Like a Pig) opened in June of 2014 and started with just a few hundred pounds of meat. After running out within a few hours, we knew Slap's was going to be a major success. As the weeks went on, we added more and more meat to the daily production finally reaching our capacity and comfort level a couple months after opening. We sell out every day because we are committed cooking fresh and putting the best BBQ on the plate we can. Slap's BBQ is one of very few restaurants in the City that is actively competing on the KCBS circuit throughout the year. On average we compete in 25-35 contests each season. We do this to stay sharp, relevant, and because we love it. Try our famous ribs and burnt ends that always run out within our first hour, or our imported Texas sausage to get a mouthful of amazing flavor. Although we try to serve as many customers as possible, we're only open until we run out daily so be sure to get here early! For finger lickin' goodness, we'll see you at Slap's!

Only on Tuesday but worth the 7 day wait. So delicious and the brisket is divine. If you are passing thru KC....

The BBQ here is good, I actually think it’s better than Joe’s. We had the 1/2 rack ribs and the sampler with brunt ends. The line was short so we were able to get our food fairly quickly. You just tell them what you want and they slap it on a tin foil pan and off you go. The regular sauce was too sweet for my liking but the spicy Bbq sauce was good and had plenty of heat. Overall good, but we are from out of town so we would probably try a different joint next time we are in KC, since there is so many.

Awesome food, Wonderful service, Great atmosphere! We had the sampler platter, extra sides of mac n cheese, cream corn, beans, chicken. My vote for best bbq mac n cheese.
We make it a point to go to as many bbq restaurants as possible and Slaps is a very fun, unique place to have a great meal.

This is my favorite Bar-B-Q in KCK. It is new but they do it right. There is always a line out the door so get here early. It opens at 11.

I have had Slaps bbq at weddings and liked the food so I decided to go to the store itself and try it. The place is fun to visit. The food is good but most things come separately. Got sauces we didn't really expect on our meal. Overall I did like the food.
