A relaxed "Entry" and "Exit" atmosphere! Traditional side dishes with a twist. The meat daddy provides the best of the menu a sampler of their wonderful BBQ. We also tried their cheesesteak sandwich served open face on a hoagie loaded with grilled peppers, onions smothered in cheese..yummy... We will be back....eager to try the entire menu.

I was a bit hesitant as this is in a strip mall. but the aroma drew us in. Again we were concerned when there was a large line, but did not appear to be much seating. Fortunately, the people move in and out pretty regularly so it was not an issue. I went for a two meat combo with brisket... More

We wanted to go to Bogarts, but there was over an hour wait to just get into the restaurant. We then tried Pappy's...long line too. We decided to try Sugarfire and the time in line was only 15 minutes. I have eaten at Pappy's numerous times, Bandanas, and a few other BBQ places in St. Louis. None impressed like Sugarfire....

St. Louis has tons of bbq restaurants but this one is amazing and truly unique. While there is a line, it moves fast. We were ordering on the fourth of July in less than 30 minutes (compare to pappy's 2+ hours). The big muddy was per my husband and son fabulous and managed to fill up a teenage boy! The... More

Big muddy was delicious! Hush puppies sounded fantastic, but were dry and hard. The home cut fries were worth the calories and the Mac and cheese got a positive response from my husband. The only thing I thought... was it could be laid out to make getting drinks, cutlery and placing your order in a more user friendly manner. It... More

Thanks for your compliments! And for your pointed feedback! From your description here, I can understand how the ordering process was confusing and cumbersome for you and your family.

Be prepared for a small wait in line. Didn't take that long and folks had left us plenty of table choices by the time we got our order. Helpful young lady that took and placed your order.

My family came here on the suggestion of local family members after having tried Bogart's smokehouse in St Louis the previous day. We had ribs, brisket, smoked portobello mushroom sandwich, chili; and sides of cheesy grits, crab casserole, gumbo casserole, mac and cheese, green beans. Ribs were meaty, moist, and flavorful, but not fall-off-the bone tender and without the glaze... More

I have been to a lot of BBQ places, this one was very good. Place is very authentic looking when you walk in. Old pictures, wood on the walls, and the smell of BBQ as soon as you walk in starts this experience in the right direction immediately. Got here and there was a line to the door. Sign by... More

I've tried a couple of BBQ places in STL and this was by far my favorite. The ribs are cooked perfectly and melt in your mouth. Also try their 'crack pie' - they are delicious.

I had heard rave reviews about this place since it opened so I headed over on a Sunday afternoon. The place was packed although we did sort of sneak in during a brief lull. I got the brisket plate, nephew got the brisket sandwich and his girlfriend got the double burger. We all raved about the meat and the sauces... More
