Hendricks BBQ has made a big impression in the St. Louis area. Customers will wait up to two hours for a table on any given Saturday evening to get their fingers on the St. Charles eatery’s popular pepper-crusted smoked brisket, and they’ll always make room for fixin’s like collard greens, baked beans with bacon and creamy mac ‘n’ cheese.
The restaurants puts a ot of love into its food, which is also readily apparent in the pulled pork, St. Louis-style ribs, Southern fried catfish, housemade corned beef and sausage and buttermilk fried chicken. And there are plenty of other warm-and-fuzzy feelings to be found in the 250-odd whiskeys (and the unique whiskey cocktails made with them) at the Moonshine Blues Bar, located in the restaurant’s lower level.
