What should you expect from K.C. BBQ? Ribs: the meat falls off the bone. Brisket: slow-cooked for hours in a pit filled with decades of character. Sauce: flavorful, spicy, complex. You get it all and more at Hayward's. \r
I served in the Navy for 4 years. By far (other than family/friends), what I most missed while I was away from Kansas City was Hayward's Pit BBQ and Hayward's BBQ Sauce. My family shipped me innumerable bottles, but it was never enough. I had to keep it locked up to keep the vultures (officers) away. \r
If you want to taste K.C.'s best , you have to eat at Hayward's.
Pros: Food, Sauce, Tradition, Atmosphere, $1.99 Bottles of Sauce w/ Meal
Cons: Hayward's doesn't get the publicity it deserves, but that's really a pro for consumers.
