Both locations were great. Family owned & operated. A real treasure. I hated to see them fold. They were always busy, so I was really surprised.

While Bully's had the best smoked meats in Edwardsville, it has fallen to the increased restaurant competition in town. The location now hosts the relocated Wang Gang. A very good Asian Fusion choice.

Months ago I had a dinner seminar there and at another place they had with the same name. Both are gone. Service was great, as was the food. Staff was the same. Place was full when I was there; don't understand how they went under. In the same strip mall area is Bella Milano; try that.

They had a great place in Edwardsville that had great food and great service. I guess the economy got too bad to keep paying the high rent but I miss them being there.

Great BBQ, although Bandanas is better (and cheaper). But when I do go, I get the sweet potato and massive pork steak. Yummy!

My husband and I eat there frequently because we both love it! I was very impressed though not surprised when I heard people in St. Louis discussing it as the best place to get pulled pork, when I was at work one day! I must agree! and the owners and the staff are attentive and gracious! It is always a... More

The place isn't exactly palatial but it's very clean. Nice selection of beers and appetizers and plenty of TVs to watch sports (the Rams were on). BBQ is where it's at. The ribs were as good as I've had anywhere (including Memphis) and the pork steak was incredible. Sides were good but not on the same level as the meats.... More

Okay, so this is a great smokehouse! Best chicken I have EVERY tasted. Chicken cut freshed and breaded each day and deep fried. Not a heavy chicken, not greasy, served to perfection. The restaurant is in a strip mall so it was a little hard to find. We went one day while we were in town and it was so... More

We visited Bully's for a quick dinner, but ended up sitting at the table for 15-20 min before anyone even came to greet us. Once we told the hostess that no one had seen us yet, a nice server came over about 5 mins later. The food was fair, but I was disappointed that my sandwich was served with pepperjack... More

Sunday evening and more than half empty. After we were seated by the hostess we were ignored by the rest of the wait staff. After fifteen minutes flagged down the hostess and asked about a server. This is in a nearly empty dining room. While we waited to be recognized by anyone of the employees we could clearly see the... More
