One day near Creve Coeur in STL

I will be in the Creve Coeur area for the day, and will have time for lunch on the way from the airport and time for dinner that night -- so I need to make it count! I will have a car, but need to stick with something in the general area. Looking for great local places. BBQ, Italian, or other options -- would prefer holes in the wall over fancy.

I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions.

  1. There is a new BBQ place in that general area called SugarFire Smoke House that sounds pretty good, although I haven't tried it myself.

    1. I have been to Sugarfire - I love it, might be there tonight ;-)

      1. Sugarfire is a great choice.

        Everything is fresh each day and when it is gone, it is gone. They have some interesting combinations in meat, like the "big muddy" and the sides are great too. They also have some great salads. Don't miss dessert. The pies are wonderful. My favorite is the apple pie and I am a pie snob. Lunch is usually more crowded than dinner but the line moves fast. Very nice people too.
