    OMG. The family trip to Branson,Mo.. we extended to St.Louis for the arch and ate here for BBQ fare per Triple D recommendation. It was well worth it. BBQ was spot on.

    Fast service and excellent BBQ (I had a tri tip sandwich and my husband had the half rack of ribs). I highly recommend if you are in the St. Louis area.

    Agree that the smothered fries are a MUST along with the Mac and Cheese. I would say anything with their pulled pork would also be a win! Such good food and service!

    No duck at lunch, but meatloaf sandwich was tasty. Brisket doesn't have much flavor before you add sauce (which is good), but it's nice & juicy, not all dried out like smoe places.
