Wow! Best service I've had, almost ever. Fast, friendly, they remember you and what you ordered which helps them meet all of your unanticipated needs! Ok, the food was DELICIOUS!!! I definitely liked the vinegar sauce and my friend liked the the sweet sauce. First time in STL and would definitely come back and will miss this option.

This place is co-owned by the same owner as Pappy's BBQ. Delicious and tender BBQ. Great ribs and the sides here are much better than at pappy's. Try it for yourself you won't be disappointed. Keep these things in mind, the place is small, there is limited inside seating and picnic tables outside. Go early as they tend to run... More

Best BBQ in the Lou by leaps and bounds. Ribs were absolutely perfect, right amount of smoke. Greeted at the front door by one of the chefs who was very friendly. There will be a definite return to this joint.

Been searching the U.S. for the best ribs & this place is the best I've had so far. Sure there is a queue & you might get met by the friendly "rib bouncer" but it is worth the wait. We tried the full rack & quarter pound of brisket. The ribs melted in your mouth, came off the bone &... More

Line out the door, but a staff member was the top open and greet each guest that entered. Food was delivered quickly, four flavors of sauces on the table and a friendly owner to chat with during a wait. Beans were great, pork was moist and the ribs tender. Nothing not to love.

Husband and I ate lunch here due to Trip Advisor, which usually steers us right. We have traveled extensively all over the U.S. and foreign countries - we know our bbq. I always try my bbq before any sauce is added, because the proof is in the meat, not the sauce. Brisket was tender but flavorless with a small amount... More

This is totally worth the wait even though the line is almost always out the door. The line moves fast! The pastrami is our family favorite and the prime rib sandwich is delicious too.

We got there early so we did not have to wait in line. But by the time we were finished eating, the line was very long. The ribs are so good! But then so is everything else we ate!

A small storefront that seats maybe 25 people. My son had a pulled pork sandwich, baked beans, and chips; I had a half slab of ribs, the beans, and slaw. Fantastic flavor on the beans, slaw nice and tangy, with crunch, the potato chips well seasoned and just the right amount of greasy/salty.mthe Fire and ice pickles the man next... More
