This was my first time to Snow's and after seeing all of the great reviews they have gotten over the years they did not disappoint ! The brisket really does melt in your mouth and the sausage was very good also. I will definately be back !

The location is definitely off the beaten path but well worth the journey! We were a bit worried we wouldnt get any BBQ coming in from Dallas however they came through for us. We are crazies fans of BBQ and literally ordered one of everything off the menu. You obviously have to get the brisket but the pork shoulder is a beautiful thing if you enjoy the burnt ends. Tootsie and the staff are really nice so everyone should go and see why it is the top 5 bbq spot in the world!

Only open on Saturdays from 8:00 until they sell out (usually before noon).

The BBQ is excellent - no sauce needed. Ribs were fall of the bone good. The sausage was AMAZING. Brisket was so good - order the moist - the lean was a tad salty and much drier. Beans are free, you pay for potato salad, coleslaw and banana pudding. Bread pickles and onions are over by the drinks.

The earlier you get there the better. No indoor seating so I think Summer is a little hot to dine comfortably.

The staff is so very nice. Tootsie was the pitmaster that day and she was showing the men how it was done!

Go. You gotta do this.

Barbecue perfection. It's a bit of a drive (watch for speed traps around Lexington), and it's a Saturday Morning ONLY trip (brisket breakfast and then get plenty to-go for lunch/dinner later). Get there early, as they do sell out of meat. The brisket is perhaps the best I've had. The ribs were excellent, and the sausage was superb. Make plans to go to Snow's. You won't be disappointed.

This is the second time I have visited Snow's and was excited to hammer their brisket. Their brisket is what they are really known for so don't expect the best ribs when going there. Be sure to order the moist brisket when you go get it, that lean part is meant for chop beef sandwiches. You are only cheating your self eating the lean parts of a brisket. It was so tender it really would fall apart as you picked it up. We also ordered the sausage and ribs which were both alright. The ribs were really fatty, really too fatty, but the meat did pull off the bone with ease. Knowing from our previous trip we knew not to order any sides, they are just alright. It's a great place to stop at if you're in the area and taste the supple brisket. They offer a spicy sauce which only has a small amount of heat that only lasts for a few seconds. There is plenty of outdoor seating and some minimal indoor seating.
