The bbq is tender, well flavored with large servings. Staff is efficient, friendly and knowledgeable of the menu items. This location is in a busy area with limited parking.

Love BBQ Saloon. Their burgers are delicious and the most flavorful we have enjoyed in St. Louis. Their BBQ is also the best we've had in the area --- and the lunch specials are a particularly tasty experience and also a great value.

We had an incredible dinner. The Phil burger is a must! Great sauce in the middle of the onion ring on the burger. Large portion of pulled pork and excellent bbq beans, super creamy Mac n cheese or potato salad. The candied bacon started it...off. Was reasonably priced. We don’t drink much but there was a huge book of all the different whiskey available!! We ate outside but the inside dining looked like a great atmosphere. Our order was actually taken by Phil who the burger was named after. It’s a must see!More

This place was very busy so the owner himself waited on us and was very attentive and helpful. Food was excellent and he even took the time to tell us anecdotes about the place and their operations there. Very enjoyable visit.

I was in St. Louis for my husband's open heart surgery and this place was so nice and so good I visited 3 times while I was in town. They have wonderful daily specials, a delicious brunch and great happy hour deals. I had shaved...beef in my first visit, Shaved beef Benedict my second visit and two ribs and the shot special for happy hour. The beef in both beef dishes was very tender, the sauces are great. The two ribs were delicious as was the shot special which was a lemon drop. In my first two visits the wait staff was the same and they recognized me, even waved and said hi once when I was just walking past the place on the street. They are also a whiskey bar and their selection is extensive. The display is beautiful and I regret that I do not like whiskey. They also offer a short list of other cocktails which I ordered from and the drink was delicious. Over all I highly recommend this place. If I lived in town I would probably be a regular.More

1st taste of American BBQ. We ate late 9pm so they were out of all the ribs, so if your wanting ribs I'd suggest go early. But did a share platter. You received 1 slice of bread with meat atop, & 2 sides... If your...not overly hungry then a share is good & portion size just right, if your hungry 1 each is a better option. Great beers and we ate outdoors, nice vibe. 3 platters and 4 drinks about $80USD Service was good. I'd recommend you check em outMore

The owner sat us when we got there and was very enthusiastic about his menu. I love when care for the food and the business is evident like that. The portions were just right for the price. Food was well seasoned and well presented. I'd...love to go back and try more items. Also whisky.More

Stopped in to grab some pulled pork and pulled chicken platters to take home. The owner, Phil, suggested our sides, and bravo Phil! The mac and cheese, cole slaw, garlic green beans and baked beans were all magnificent. Do not skip these! The place has...a great local ambience, the servers were friendly and we will certainly return to eat there next time we are in town.More

Our group of six folks, representing four states had a variety of drink and food orders (ales, scotch, whiskey, burgers, ribs and pulled pork) and each of us was pleased at the end of the evening. I had the 1/2 rack of pork ribs with...the amazing slaw (it had blueberries in it), crispy fries, and corn muffin with honey butter. Yum! The ribs were well-seasoned with a great rub that enhanced the smoky pork, and so tender that they easily came off the bone as I cut into them. They were wonderful as served, but I did also try two of the three house sauces delivered to the table by our excellent server. This was everything I'd hoped to experience in St. Louis dining. At the end of the meal we all shared a piece of the best gooey butter cake we'd tried during the week. A great experience!More
