We were on a long....trust me on this one.....long cross country journey and checked into the Comfort Inn and Suites. April, the hotel manager recommended this one and said it was one of the best restaurants around. When we drove up, we could not even tell if it was open or not. It fronts a nice looking RV park, but... More

Celebrating my daughters birthday we made 16 stops along St Louis and this happened to be one of them. They had a special half price deal on Groupon so we decided to try it out. This place was not hard to find and right off the main road. There is a place for campers right behind it but it did... More

We were always hesitant to eat here and finally stopped in on the recommendation of someone else. I cannot tell you how many times we have been back. We have even used them for catering a birthday party. The beef brisket and pulled pork are my faves; love the large variety of sides. The service is great and the people... More

Even without the sauce the ribs were great, I'm not normally a ribs guy but these were very good. My wife had the pulled pork sandwich it had great... More

Cute little BBQ place in an area with very few non fast food options. I had the sliced brisket - quite tasty, nice smoke ring. Smoked turkey was a little on the dry side, but that's tough to avoid when you smoke poultry. Their baked beans were outstanding. The potato salad was oddly liquidy... not sure what that was about.... More

The place is a locals spot. I got the beef brisket, chopped up turkey breast and green beans and baked beans. The brisket was fatty none of the food was hot. Nothing tasted like it had been smoked. Never seen any indication they had a smoker. It does sit in a camp ground parking lot.

We were looking for local BBQ. The Sawmill was close to our hotel. More than enough to eat. Portions were huge! Rustic décor made you feel at ease in a country setting. The waitress was friendly and gave recommendations on what to order.

We were on a cross North America motorcycle trip and had planned to visit the arch in St Louis in the morning. We like to go to small independent places. So I came here to TripAdvisor and searched for a place to eat. We found the Sawmill and it had good reviews. So we went... One of the best places... More

This is the best BBQ we have eaten. During two separate visits (August 2013/September 2013) we had pork lion, ribs, pulled pork, turkey breast, chicken and brisket. Each entree was cooked to perfection. All entrees are served without sauce so you can chooses your own. Having asthma it is difficult for me to find a BBQ meal that does not... More
