I had heard that the Briskets at this BBQ restaurant was well worth the visit. So anyway we decided to give it a try. I was not disappointed to say the least. I loved it and I will be returning.

I always go in and grab a pound of Brisket and pints of sides and a myriad of barbeque sauce and head home for dinner with the family! Always yummy. Never disappoints!

We stumbled upon this fantastic very informal BBQ eatery by accident and we truly enjoyed a great early dinner. We got the BBQ brisket combo with 2 sides and it was one of the best I've ever had. The prices were reasonable and since it's...More

I've been to the traditional BBQ places in St Louis, all are good but couldn't compare the brisket from Big Baby, it is the best I've tried so far, Alabama white sauce, can't go wrong.
