“Awesome BBQ”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

We passed this restaurant on our way into Cahokia to visit the vertical log courthouse and church. As we were starved by the time we finished our tour we asked the tour guide about this place, and he said the brisket was fantastic. He wasn't lying (or even exaggerating)--the brisket was awesome, as were the sides we ordered (beans were amazing). Too bad we don't live closer or we'd eat here at least once a week.

“Good BBQ”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

I was in Cahokia for training for a couple of days and this was pretty close to our facility. First off, it's a BBQ place in a trailor park. Pretty good sign. The food was good....recommend the turkey breast with baked beans. Workers were friendly and the prices were about average. Very good for the crap hole that is Cahokia.

“Decent BBQ off the beaten path”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

The pitmaster here knows his way around the competitive BBQ landscape, from what I understand. He was conscientious enough that he brought out a couple of extra ribs on my first visit because he felt the cuts he gave me weren't good enough. I don't recommend coming here after dark, although I guess it's probably safe - some of the surrounding areas are rough. Prices are reasonable and everything we tried was at least good.

Probably 3.5 stars, rounded up.
