Foursquare Tips

  • Even vegetarians can enjoy a delicious barbecue! Five smokey slices of tofu sit between your choice of bread topped off with an original homemade vegan sauce.
  • Go for the pick two option, and dig into a lush, deeply flavorful pile of brisket and silky pulled pork scattered with crunchy burnt ends. (Betha Whitlow)
  • Sauces are kept warm, be sure to try them all!
  • Pulled pork and tequila lime green beans are very, very tasty!!!!
  • Best BBQ in town!
  • The brisket is amazing!
  • Rueben sandwich is SO freaking good.
  • Friday special is pulled rib meat. Very good!
  • Get the green beans and all meats are good. Never crowded, stay clear of the horsey potato salad. I like this spot for a lunch
  • Green beans and ribs very good. Potato salad has horseradish not my favorite. All else is great. Never overly crowded.
  • Best BBQ in town. Wednesday is Reuben day and you won't be disappointed. The brisket and smoked wings are also excellent.
  • Damn good ribs and not super pricey. Come early though, they run out of meats around closing time.
  • The two meat combo is a steal! WashU students get a free side with ID
  • The cornbread tastes like cake and the pulled pork is amazing! Their baby back ribs are also worth a trip; they use a rub so they taste phenom with or without one of their sauces.
  • Don't miss the ribs. The rub is ridiculous, and you'll be fighting with your dining companions over the last one!
  • The Que'cide Sandwich usually appears on the list of Friday's specials and is a meaty start to the weekend.
  • Try the smoked wings!
  • Brisket was excellent. Clean and friendly.
  • Brisket and pork are good but the ribs are the standout
  • Best smoked chicken wings! Amazing everything, from pork to beef, to tequila lime green beans, and smoked seasonal fruits. Everything is a winner here!
