I did a St. Louis bbq tour. Second on the list. Decent line out the door. Fall off the bone ribs filled with moist smokey flavor. Side of beans and corn were basic. While not outstanding, I’d call it above average meat.

Excellent burnt ends and ribs. They’ve great atmosphere with sweet bbq roasting meat thank you can watch while waiting and enjoying your company and the meat! They are passionate and it is one of the best in the area
