What a great find! We don't go to this area often and was driving by a dinner time so we stopped. An absolute treat. Staff was very friendly helpful in the service was great. The brisket and pulled pork were outstanding! I love the coleslaw and the fact it does not have onions. The beans were great as was the cold beer. We look forward to the next time we're in the area so we can visit again.

Went here for the first time and it was okay. Easy to order and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The food was just okay. The BBQ sauce saved the rating. The spicy one was the best. We ordered the 3 meat combo and it came with 2 sides. The beans were good, they had their burnt ends in them. The fries were super hot, which is rare! They had some good ranch too.

"Are you kidding me?" Those were my first words after the food was delivered - and they were not words of happy surprise, but of huge disappointment. If you want a short review, here you are: go someplace else. Otherwise, read on for why they received such a low rating. My sister was craving BBQ so we stopped in to Frasher's last night, around 4:30. They have a large outdoor patio, live music until 5:00. There was another portion of the patio on the front, well shaded, where the music was not as loud. It is a large place w/ ample parking. While placing our order the first thing I noticed was there were no ingredients / toppings listed for their sandwiches. Stupidly, I didn't ask; I assumed it would be the typical fixins. B-I-G mistake. We initially sat inside but it was such a beautiful day we moved to the front patio. No one was there; they were all on the side enjoying the music. The sweet tea was good. Unfortunately, that is where the "good" stopped. Our plastic plates & plastic silverware were delivered to our table, with three small plastic containers of different BBQ sauces. If you look at the pictures, you'll see my sandwich (and I use that term loosely!!) was nothing but slabs of turkey tossed between a sesame bun. BORING! and dry. The baked beans were bad, lukewarm with what I guess were onions & peppers. Lukewarm. Same with the fried ravioli appetizer. I would bet money they came out of a box, into the microwave, onto the plate. My sister got the tri trip & pulled pork platter w/ garlic mashed potatoes and mac 'n cheese. Potatoes were barely warm, everything else was stone cold. She took two bites. At this point her words were "I left too large of a tip". I didn't even touch my sandwich. She went back in to see if we had missed a buffet where sandwich fixins would have been. We didn't. When the server came back out, I asked him where the rest of the sandwich was, lettuce, tomatoes, mayonnaise, etc. He said there weren't any. I had to ask for it. By the time he brought out a plate of lettuce, two tomato slices, and a few pickles, we were both so annoyed we packed up the food and walked out - and walked across the driveway to eat at d'Lite - Healthy On The Go (which was way better). Why did we take the food? Because we were raised not to waste it - and knew by taking it home, we could add flavor and other items to it to make it worth while - and we could HEAT IT UP. I read the Yelp! reviews for Frasher's, many were 4 & 5 stars, quite a few from elite members. I can only surmise that those reviews are from family members, or that Frasher's new they were coming because I honestly have no idea how anyone could give Frasher's such high ratings for cold, naked, bland food.

First time here. The people are amazing and so is the bbq. Hands down the best I’ve had in the valley. And don’t forget to have the gooey butter cake!

So happy we found this spot!! The pizza is better than IMO’s (If you’re from St. Louis, you know, and you need to come try it out) I get the works with burnt ends and jalapeños. My husband loves the bbq and we love the staff and atmosphere. They always have blues music playing inside and St. Louis sporting events on at the bar. They also have live music on their patio occasionally. Can’t wait to come back for the next blues game!!

Ordered the pizza with the works less onions and bell pepper. The works was sausage, peperoni, tomatoes and something cheese like. There was no sauce to speak of except for what separated from the vomit looking congealed cheese. The crust was thin and crunchy. The pizza was cut in 3" squares so that it would fit on a 5" plastic plate. You could not pick up the pieces without the topping sliding off the crust. The utensils were cheap flimsy and plastic. The roof was leaking and there was a big puddle of water in the center of the restaraunt. Mall pizza by the slice would have been better. My companion ate the lions share and took some with him. Think twice there has to be a Dominos nearby.

This place is 100% worth a stop. The service is impeccable and the food mind blowing. We had the pork steak and tri tip…. We will be back for sure. The homemade ranch and spicy BBQ sauces were out of this world…. But the real show stopper, knock your socks off finale, was the gooey butter cake ***mind blown***

Wow! Have nothing but wonderful things to say about this smokehouse. The pulled pork was the star. I’ve never had anything like it before. Green Chile Mac, oh my goodness yum. Chris has clearly been with the company for a while and gave great service. He genuinely cares because he went above and beyond. The staff cooking have been with them for over 20 years. That’s dedication and art. We are going to be back.
