I ordered the BBQ chicken. My meal was cold and the chicken was way too peppered. Next time I'll just drive up to Famous Dave's.

We stopped here for lunch while traveling from Chicago to St. Louis and had heard it was a good barbeque place. What we heard was right!

It's the only place we ever have the awesome brisket. Chrisshawna took good care of our table of 5. It may say "sports bar," but... More

Never been to one and we wanted to try something different. Nice atmosphere and good food. My wife had the smoked pork tenderloin and had the Texas brisket. Nice taste and flavor from both. Only down side was figuring out how to get to parking lot in the dark in a town we only visit occasionally.

We knew they would be busy on a Sat nite, so we arrived about 5pm. We still had to wait about 15 minutes for a table, but there was plenty of seating at the bar, so we waited there over a drink. We got our table on time and the waitress was pleasant and efficient. We like the St Louis... More
