I like to try BBQ whenever available and Saint Louis is known has plenty to sample. While Sugarfire had a plethora to choose from, there was room for improvement with the quality of sides. The meat was smoked well, but was not the best I have had. I was disappointed, it was good, but just not great.

We have traveled extensively throughout the United States and have eaten BBQ in many different states and regions. We enjoy sampling the different flavors that the various regions have and this has been by far the best BBQ we have had. From a technical aspect all of the meats were cooked correctly by judging standards. Now, the sauces are a matter of taste. We tend to like it sweet and the Saint Louis Sweet didn't disappoint. They also had a spicy variant, a mustard sauce, white sauce, and a coffee sauce. The line was comparatively short when we went, but waiting would be worthwhile. The atmosphere was neat and the staff was friendly even with a busy floor. Give it a shot, we don't think you'll be disappointed.

This place was excellent! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the drink selections. The food was amazing! I ordered the 2 meat plate with brisket and pulled pork. The chef told me no and said he wanted me to eat something better than pulled pork. He gave me 1 rib bone to try. It was amazing! So I changed my order to ribs and brisket. I will definitely go back if I go back to St. Louis.

We were looking for something a little different after leaving the St.Louis Zoo. We found Sugarfire and loved it. Reasonably priced and fresh food. I loved that I could get Brussel Sprouts as a side.

Fun atmosphere, FANTASTIC BBQ particularly the pulled pork and beef. GREAT sauces, and interesting sides--with some special sides daily.. Don't be put off by the line--it moves quickly.
