As Cubs fans, we drove down for the Cardinals vs Cubs series this past weekend and stopped by here for our pregame meal, and it was out of the park bbq. We arrived around 3pm on Sunday and were told they only had wings and...More

A small place with great BBQ. Eat it there or get it to go. In a town where BBQ joints are popping up all over, Adam's is a cut above. But what I really went there for was the smoked salami. I was overwhelmed how...More

Adam's Smokehouse has a delicious BBQ menu. All their meat is fantastic. You have to get there early.....they only smoke a certain amount and when it gone, it's gone. However, you can always order early for a carryout and they will save some for you....More

I found their menu board to be very busy and difficult to read. Fortunately, one of the restaurant employees brought us a menu which was easier to follow. The restaurant is decorated in Cardinals and Blues memorabilia. The Barbeque was very good. They give you...More

First time here we will be a regular from now on. Best BBQ we ever had in STL. The service was friendly and sincere that they wanted you to have a great experience. On top of it the prices are more than fair.

We both ordered brisket, tender and flavorful. They use a dry rub, with 3 sauces on the table. Great atmosphere..small with 'cozy' tables. We each had two sides--coleslaw has apple chunks in it, very nice to have a tiny bit of sweetness in the slaw....More
