If you are in the St. Louis area you just have to head over to SugarFire Smokehouse on Olive just west of 170. The owners of this place are the nicest people to ever run a restaurant and the barbeque and sides are out of this world. Seriously, folks, this place is worth the trip.
Aside from that the owner is offering free sandwiches to anyone who has been furloughed due to the government shutdown and the meat in those sandwiches are beyond what anyone else serves up. SugarFire has received a lot of publicity among local foodies and food magazines, but I can tell you how much our students love it, students who know their food. And, they are treated more generously than you would believe. "Here, John or Mike or Adam or Lisa or Katie, take this huge pile of smoked briscuit or pastrami home with you. Oh, and here are a bunch of sides too."
Go to this place everyone. You won't be sorry.
