St Louis BBQ

STL BBQBBQ restaurants in St Louis are always fun to visit as the atmosphere is often very casual, relaxed and playful. The best part is, the food is spectacular. Barebecue restaurants vary in terms of the type of food that is served. Some restaurants like to serve Mediterranean or Oriental cuisine, while others are heavily influenced by Asian or American cuisine. No matter what type of cuisine a restaurant goes with, all have this in common: the manner in which the food is cooked. BBQ style cooking involves using wood, an open flame, and charcoal. More modern restaurants may use electric grills. Some barbecue restaurants have gotten so creative with their methods that they sometimes prepare and serve the food outdoors.

One primary reason why St Louis restaurants are so popular in the United States is because of the sauces that are served with the food items. Many restaurants spring up on the left and the right just to compete with other restaurants. Many times the sauce served alongside the food is the ‘secret weapon’. Many of the best St Louis restaurants offer their own unique flavours and characteristics. For instance, some serve mayonnaise with their slaw while others prefer to leave it out.
