About Ricky’s Pit Bar-B-Que

Veteran barbecue restaurateur Ricky Smith, who runs Ricky’s Pit Bar-B-Que, has operated a couple of locations in Wyandotte County over the years and served some celebrities along the way (including President Bill Clinton). He took over a former ice-cream parlor on Leavenworth Road (Quindaro Boulevard flows into this street) four years ago, and it’s the smallest space he has run: five tables and a counter. He no longer serves smoked catfish (“It got to be too expensive,” he says), which was one of his signature dishes in better times. But his brisket sandwich is still a winner — thick and tender and dripping with a sharp, cayenne-spiced sauce. And the burnt-ends platter, at less than $10, is one of the best barbecue deals in the metro. (The peach cobbler here, when it’s available, is fantastic.)
