I have to thank Adam Claypool from Metromix St. Louis for pointing out Sawmill Barbeque in Cahokia, Illinois. Hadn’t heard of it yet and from the reviews (see below) online it seems like a winner for the St. Louis area.
Their menu looks great (however I have no idea what their version of the BLT is). You can check out their menu here. One impressive thing I noticed was their saying that they do run out of meat due to high demand, so they apologize in advance for this. Sounds like some places in Texas I know of.
This review from CitySearch says this joint is “By far the best BBQ in St. Louis…It’s even better than Pappy’s!”. Better than Pappy’s Smoke House? That’s a bold statement. If you’ve been to Sawmill Barbeque, let us know what you think.
