Good service good food. The pulled pork is among the best I’ve had anywhere in the country. The burnt ends brisket had an awesome flavor albeit a little fatty for my personal taste. The side orders were fantastic.

The ribs had a very tasty dry rub and the sauces ALL added to their flavor. The burnt ends were sooo moist and flavorful! The fried corn on the cob tasted great and was moist. This is a MUST EXPERIENCE restaraunt!!

In the area for a work trip and my coworker and I drove about 45 minutes to get here. Well worth the trip. The food was delicious, came out quickly and exceeded expectations. If I'm in the St Louis area again, I'll definitely come back.
