St. Louis area has so many BBQ choices, but this one is the best! Pork Steak is delicious. Nachos with the pork is also very good. This is a must do each time I go home

“Great BBQ”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Columbia has a great BBQ place in Bully's. The pork steak is just great and so tender you can cut it with a fork!!! The have a nice salad and you can add the turkey which is fine for a light lunch with the soup of the day. Friendly staff and Brandy always has a smile. Fair prices and good service. If you come on Fri ---- you will have a little wait not bad as many St. Louis People come over on Fri and Sat. You will enjoy it.

“Very Good BBQ and Other Foods”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

We found the staff very friendly and a menu full of variety. Not just a Q joint!. The pulled pork, Potatoe salad, beans, slaw are terrific. They even offer pork steak! They feature a variety of sauces. Food is reasonably priced, they have specials each night. Don't think there is better Q in the area. We'll visit often.

“Great food!”

Love the pork steak. They advertise that you can eat it with a fork. It is true! Large piece of meat and extremely tender! Great food and service.

“Would go back”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We had to wait to be seated, but it wasn't too long. Everyone seemed to like their food. The turkey was very moist. I would go back, but others in the party got the ribs and thought it wasn't worth a repeat trip. It was our waitresses first day, and she did surprisingly well. It seemed to be similar food to Bandanas, but more expensive, with better decor.
