A must visit in St Louis for great BBQ. Try, one of the combos to get a taste of the different meats. My favourite was the brisket (burnt ends) and pull pork. Good for lunch or dinner

Simple menu offers great BBQ at reasonable prices. The Trashed Ribs appetizer was wonderful -- smokey, tender, full of flavor. Burnt Ends were outstanding. It's a popular place so expect a wait. Service was attentive and friendly

Hi. In the Loop location, I have not seen a private room. They are opening a new location, which might include a private room. I would call and ask about their new location.
