It took 45 minutes for the food to arrive and when it did it was cold. Underwhelming experience. Go to Pappy’s if you’re looking for good St. Louis BBQ.

Excellent BBQ. The only thing heard at the table was no one liked the Cole slaw. Everything else was great!!

We are visiting St. Charles for our anniversary weekend and tried Hendrix BBQ for the first time. And would highly recommend it! The service was great except our appetizer didn’t make it out to the table. This turned out to be a good thing because there is no way we could have ate it and our meal. We may even go back again before we leave town!

Awesome to be able to try authentic St. Louis BBQ during my travels! 3 of my associates and I ate here after working a the Convention Center down the street. The atmosphere was perfect for us; low key and casual. The menu had something for everyone and we all LOVED our meats. Service was fantastic. There was no live music while we were there, but you can tell it's a fun spot. Would absolutely go back!

Went with friends, a table of 8. Had a wonderful time, service was friendly, food was great. One order had ribs instead of the ordered brisket, he was told to keep the ribs and a side of brisket was sent right out. Several tried pork cracklings for the first time, one ordered a second for dessert, a delicious splurge on a night out. Wide selection of drinks and plenty of cocktails to try. Band started downstairs so we enjoyed some good blues at the end of the meal and then ventured down for a bit. A fabulous evening.

Have been twice for dinner over the past month or so... Both occasions were on a weekend night and the service was excellent. The BBQ is great. Side are hit or miss depending on your taste (thought the mac & cheese was too spicy, corn casserole was OK, but green beans and cole slaw was outstanding). Tried one of their Cathedral Square brews and it was very good. Will be back!

The BBQ was awesome - the rib meat fell off the bone when I lifted them off the plate. Smoked Sausage and Hamburgers was excellent! My wife says the green beans we 'almost' as good as grandma's!

The meat was smoked and not very flavorful. The sweet potato and corn casserole were good. There were 4 types of bbq sauces on the table but they seemed watered down. I had a reservation and the hostess, server were not very welcoming. I would recommend this place for someone to try the bbq. I feel bbq is something everyone needs to make their own option about.

The food is VERY overpriced for what you get - $42.00 for 2 drinks and an entree. $7.00 for a 4oz. side of creamed spinach. Seriously? Service was rough. Several orders were wrong and no effort made to correct. More than 10 minutes passed from the time food was delivered until server checked on us - after she spilled the $7.00 creamed spinach on the table and begrudgingly brought a replacement out. Ordered mashed potatoes with no gravy, got sweet potatoes instead. When our waitress finally came by, we asked for what we ordered (reminding her about the no gravy) and we got the mashed potatoes with - you guessed it - plenty of gravy. They used to have a very extensive bourbon list. Apparently not any more. I asked about some harder to find bourbons (which they've always had in the past) with no joy. Finally, I asked about Pappy and the waitress looked at me like I had three heads. Will not be going back any time soon.

The meat was great, the sides were good, and the local beer selection was pretty good as well. The major downside was that their BBQ sauces were all really thin and runny, with very little variation between the choices. Would choose a different BBQ place next time for that reason.

They weren't very busy the night we went, perhaps because it was a little cold outside. Our table was ready when we arrived. They have a good selection of alcohol; however, they didn't have the domestic beer I prefer. We went downstairs to listen to the live music after we ate and it was good. If you want to eat downstairs, you have to go upstairs and order your food and take it downstairs with you. Seemed like several people did that. Overall a good experience and I would go again.

The BBQ meat is delicious, the sides are okay. I had the braised greens w/bacon were delicious though portion was not filling at all extremely small. I also had the corn casserole, which was a disappointment. Very bland and dry tasting versus what I'm accustomed to creamy & a little sweet. I've eaten here before and the food was very good then as well.

The BBQ as usual was excellent. Sides are also very good. The banana pudding was terrible with the bananas not being ripe. But, server removed the item from our bill which was appreciated. Prices are a bit above average for BBQ.

I was very disappointed in the side dishes and desert. The brisket was very good, but the corn casserole and the fried potatoes were very ordinary at best. We had apple pie and it was not very good at all. Too much crust some of which wasn't done and very few apples

We went for a family Christmas Eve dinner and had reservations for 6:30. Upon arriving the place was very empty with only 2-3 other tables. Service was very poor and food was slow (and cold) coming out despite the restaurant being empty. While we were eating we were left to be the only table there. The staff was sweeping and cleaning around us. We thought this was quite odd. After we got the bill (around 7:45) we asked if they were closing early. The waitress then informed us they had closed at 7. I’m not sure why i was allowed to make a reservation for 6:30 when they closed at 7. I wish they would have informed us upon seating. We would have chosen a different venue as this was a family holiday meal we normally would have ordered desserts and after dinner drinks. Instead we then felt bad and rushed out.

Where to begin... This was our 2nd experience here, which is the ONLY reason I would recommend this place, bc the first visit was the complete opposite. Had this visit been our first, we'd never return. Went for Christmas dinner, myself, husband, 7 month old, and in-laws. We arrived before the dinner crowd this evening. Sunday special is fried chicken, which both in-laws ordered, I got the pulled pork sandwich, my husband the brisket Philly. My in-laws asked to substitute sides and were told no substitutions allowed, ok fine. It says allow 15 minutes for fried chicken, understandable. 20 minutes after ordering we're told our food is ready, but the fried chicken has another 10 minutes...annoying, but whatever. They finally bring the food...fried chicken is hot, but no mashed potatoes because They "aren't ready" and "it'll just be a few minutes". Pulled pork is cold, like been sitting there for awhile cold, and brisket is fine bc husband will eat whatever you put in front of him. Sent the pork back to have it heated up and it returned with a sloppy, wet, disgusting, inedible bun. We ate slow, hoping for mashed potatoes to arrive, which they NEVER DID. If we can't substitute sides, at least BRING THE SIDES ITS SUPPOSED TO COME WITH. Our waitress is fantastic, she truly is. She is genuinely apologetic and seems embarrassed at the situation, but shouldn't be because we know it isn't her fault. Ask to speak with a manager. This guy comes along COULD NOT CARE LESS that the wait was way longer than expected, pulled pork sandwich is terrible and inedible, and STILL NO MASHED POTATOES. Worst of all he blames everyone else and gives an obligatory "sorry". He did take 20% off the check, which seems minimal since 75% of the order was incorrect. Terrible experience.

Overall, food was good. Good craft beer list. This is the second time we've eaten here and I would return again. Small detail is that the cheesy grits on the Sides menu is horrible. Tastes like it came prepared quickly from a box. Otherwise, everything else is very good.

Fantastic BBQ meat, good craft beer and cocktails, friendly service. Sides are meh, and it's fairly pricey for lunch, but the brisket, turkey and pork were worth the trip.
