The beef brisket was the only thing I liked here and even then I didn't care for their sauce. It was a mustard based sauce. There are a couple other locations in other cities if you really feel you would like this. My wife and I both love BBQ, but we didn't think this was nearly as good as the... More

Sure, it was 3pm on a Tuesday, but there was no excuses for what happened. The waitress, who was friendly and a good server, was correct in pointing us to order the grand champion plate to split between the two of us. So we ordered the GCP, and a half slab of ribs, and of course 4 sides. Brisket first.... More

I have had 17th Street from the location in Murphysboro, Illinois years ago and was very excited to eat at the O'Fallon location. The BBQ is amazing and we loved the pickle chips. Will be stopping there on our next trip to St Louis area!

Saw the reviews and press on this place, was in the area and decided to try it. I was there on a Saturday evening and the place was virtually empty. ..not a good sign. I ordered a brisket sandwich and a half slab of ribs-they only sell baby backs. The bun was stale with a very small amount of brisket.... More

some of the most flavorful food I've enjoyed in years...everything on the plate had a distinctive, zesty flavor that seemed to complement and compliment the others. i had red beans and rice and cole slaw...the former just spicy enough to make a bold statement without being overpowering; the latter tart and palate-clearing. But now to the reason for being here:... More

How about some of the best ribs you will ever find...world champs in fact. And the other meats are just as good...but come for the ribs. You won't be disappointed.

BBQ chicken was the most tender I've had!! And I'm pretty particular about BBQ. Also, their "Magic Dust" is awesome! The atmosphere was charming and staff was great.
