I'll be in St. Louis all next week. Staying in the Creve Coeur area on M and T and then downtown the rest of the week/end.

Can anyone recommend a dynamite BBQ joint in the area? I've hit The Hill for Italian in the past, but want to try something new.

    One of the down sides of owning the Egg is that one's patronage of restaurants, especially BBQ restaurants, declines quite a bit. It's been some time since I've sought out BBQ here, to be honest, so any recommendation will come from the past.

    * Richard's Ribs in Kirkwood (on Big Bend, just west of Lindbergh) - good BBQ, definitely get the baked beans as a side. Mostly a take-out beer :S

    * Fat Toney's in Soulard (down by Anheuser-Bush, around 1600 S. 9th Street) - good baby backs

    * Lampert's Plush Pig in Clayton on Forsyth. All-around good 'cue.

    * Bandana's - a local chain, but pretty good. They have stores all over the area.

    I kon't know about St. Louis but if you get a chance to drive a little south of there, you really ought to drive to Sikeston and visit Lamberts "home of the throwed rolls". Unfortunately I have never tried their Q or ribs, but everything else I've tried was incredible. The atmosphere is very unique.
  • I agree with Jeffersonian, you really should stick with the Hill

    Morning Firetruck:

    Ate at Lambert's last night! I'm in SE Missouri for one more day (my mother is in the hospital), before heading back to Florida (hope to get by Ocala on the way home to Brandon for a while). The food wasn't bad (the throwed rolls are fantastic). Had the pork steak and all I could think of was how much better it would have been if cooked on the Egg.

    Have a GREAT day!

    We've eaten at Bandanna's and liked it. Very good for a chain. Try the deep fried corn and the doughnut holes served hot from the frier with powdered sugar.

    Yeah, I've eaten at Lambert's at both of their locations and I'm not a fan of the food. The rolls, however, are excellent.

    While not BBQ per se, if he wants a really, really good steak I'd recommend Citizen Kane's in Kirkwood. Excellent food there.

    BTW, Suck Creek, I got my shipment of your wing sauces a couple of days ago. I haven't used on wings yet, but the tastes I've taken have impressed me.
  • If you want to take a little drive,I'd say about 45 minutes-go 44 west to Cuba,mo. and look for the sign on left---Missouri Hick BBQ.
    This stuff is killer and the portions are generous.
    Blows all the chain guys out of the water. B)

    Thanks for the top, RO. My daughter goes to school in Springfield, so we're on I-44 fairly frequently. Gotta check that one out.
  • Dave,

    My brain must be a little slow...Head out I-44 west to highway 109 look for a restaurant called Supersmokers on the north side of the Interstate. These guys have a couple of huge KCBS trophies. Dr. BBQ did a book signing there awhile back for his new cookbook.

    Enjoy your time here,
