BBQ GoodnessExcellent Ribs. The Chicken & a Biscuit is a must try. Haven't had anything bad there yet. We have gone 5 or 6 times now. The menu is a bit pricey. Ask the server to explain the portions. The menu uses the term "Family Style", which implies large portions for everyone to share and that is not what you get. They just come in separate bowls. On our second time there the server went over the menu with us and explained many of the options. All in all, once you figure out the menu it is a great place to eat.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day LunchI took my mother to Hendricks for Mothers Day Lunch. She loves BBQ. She was not disappointed. The service was outstanding. The food was very good especially the meat. If you are hungry, get "The Whole Shebang" You won't be disappointed. The ribs are very meaty. The pulled pork is perfectly smoked. The sausage has a great flavor, but not too hot. The turkey was moist. There is a good selection of homemade sauces on the table. The BBQ Baked Beans are very good; smoky with bacon and lots of flavor. The macaroni and cheese was creamy with a crispy topping. If you have one meal in St. Charles, don't miss Hendricks5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMIt's moreIt's more than just a BBQ place. It has a southern flair with country cooking and comfort foods. We had a table of four and there were no complaints from any of us. We all were stuffed and all said we would definitely come back. Some items on the menu say they take 15 minutes to prepare, if that is true, it sure didn't seem like we waited that long. We were out for a relaxing evening and experience so were not in a hurry.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a superb waitress (sorry,We had a superb waitress (sorry, cannot remember her name). We needed a gluten free list of items and were provided with that. However, we believe the chili was NOT gluten free or possibly something else was not as it made my wife feel really bad that night. We thought the menu was large and plentiful enough. I usually do not eat meat, but had the turkey, which was outstanding. I wish you offered a veggie burger. You may want to contact Match burgers as they are made locally and THE BEST! Schnucks carries them and offers in the Des Peres Cafe area as well in the frozen area.
Your restaurant offers many great features: WELL DONE!! We WILL be back!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMTerrific BBQ!This was our second visit, & definitely won't be our last. A BIG restaurant, but very welcoming, lively and comfortable.
I love their pulled pork sandwich (add the colesaw on top for $1), & sides are delicious, including mac & cheese, corn pudding & baked beans. I also loved their potato salad the first time (flavorful, & potatoes slightly firm - not a mushy mixture full of excess mayo like you often get elsewhere). The second time the potatoes were undercooked, but our waitress gladly brought us a different side dish (the baked beans) to replace it.
Interesting drinks (try the Wee Doggie-a cross between a mojito & whiskey sour), & good desserts. Great addition to St. Charles.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMLiked the variety of sauces,Liked the variety of sauces, service fast & friendly, food was very good.

WeWe had a pleasant time. We were able to take as much time as we needed without feeling rushed.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSomething for everyone..The menu was diverse. The dancing pig was fun for everyone. The food was delicious except my sons plain cheeseburger had some spice to it? Although, I enjoyed it in my lunch the next day. Our server was more than accomodating! A nice location to walk it off after all the great food!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPORTIONS WAY TOO SMALLExcellent BBQ! Tried pulled pork and brisket, smoked just right! 4 different kinds of sauce at the table was fun to experiment with. Biggest complaint: PORTIONS ARE WAY TOO SMALL! This includes meat and sides. $18 for a two meat platter, the portions should be twice the size the were, if not larger. ANd the sides are served in a VERY small cup unless you order them family-style. All sides were delicious, however. Grits, collards, baked beans, slaw, sweet potato fries, and tons more.
If you want a larger serving of meat, I would recommend ordering one of the BBq sandwiches. I got a $10 pulled pork sandwich (you MUST get slaw on top and add your choice of sauce!! delicious!) and my serving of meat was twice what platter was.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBBQ Lover's Check this Out!I have been there twice. Both times, the food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. I consider myself to be a BBQ snob and this is one of the best.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMMust experience BBQ and Blues !We loved the food and service so much that we booked the Loft for my sons rehearsal dinner . Ambiance is top notch and the whiskey menu is unparalleled . Matt is one of the BEST waiters I've experienced and his knowledge of the menu including the beer and whiskey products was most impressive .3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMLove it that you have takenLove it that you have taken over a historic location for the restaurant. A definite plus for Old St. Charles. Have been there 5 times and have brought different family/friends/small groups and they loved it and are now regulars. I love the rustic ambience of the decor. Can't wait for the downstairs to open. The food was hot when it should be, always generous and you have very unique menu items. A+ all the way around!3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat addition to Main Street!So happy we don't have to trek downtown to Pappy's anymore to get our BBQ fix. Hendricks is great. The food is wonderful (I kill for the gouda-enhanced Mac & Cheese) and portion sizes are reasonable; BBQ is great (the moistest turkey!); and the staff is always very accommodating. Great addition to the Main Street scene. And I'm really looking forward to summer because I know the outside patio and deck will be a great place to hang out.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother great experience!This was my second visit, and it was just as great as the first! I brought some guests from out of town who had requested 'Barbecue' - there were 5 of us and we shared a "Whole Shebang" along with some wonderful fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, an extra side and one pecan pie a la mode for desert and No one (including my friend's 6'5" hubby) went home hungry! Best part was the cost per person was under $25! We didn't have any alcoholic beverages, but this is one of the best values around, great food, great service, can't wait to go back!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI would have liked a lunchI would have liked a lunch menu. I felt that we got very little food for the $. Lunch for 4 cost us $60 and we had two kids meals. $18 platter had sides served in the same dish that the kids ketchup was served in (very small). Only 4 slices of brisket and 1/2cup pulled pork with the $18 two meat platter. Seemed like we were served lunch portion for dinner prices. Kids meals were 3 very large chicken pieces. It was actual fried chicken meat versus heated frozen strips (nice). The pieces were quite large for our 6 year olds to bite into. Enjoyed it, but lots leftover. BBQ sauces were very thin. Not my favorite, but edible. Loved the decor! Might go back when warmer for outside dining at dinner time to see if portions match prices bet1/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
