We were referred to the restaurant by a local and WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED!!!!! Seated right away by the hostess and it looked like the diners WERE mostly locals. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Got the plate of St. Louis style ribs, pulled beef brisket sandwich, mac and cheese and side of jalepeno cream corn. EXCELLENT BBQ and a variety of craft and local beers. WE WERE SO PLEASANTLY SATIATED! And the bill was very reasonable. The neighborhood on Virginia Ave is very hip and right off the main drag of Arsenal street. You cannot go wrong here folks. I hate to make them any more popular but they are TOTALLY deserving of the raves.
I also understand Guy Fieri has been there and done a show on the place.
As a tip, if you go here for lunch, afterwards go up to Cherokee Row and check out the strip of eccentric antique stores. Very eclectic! It will give you the perfect day in St. Louie!
