Still Young, Boodles BBQ Gaining Fans
You have to try the fried biscuits, say diners.
Boodles BBQ, Affton's newest smokehouse, serves some delicious meats, but it's the fried biscuits that set this place apart, say online reviewers.
When we wrote last about restaurant opening last fall, Patch readers responded with enthusiasm and gusto, making it one of the top-read stories of the year. We thought we would check in to see what kind of online buzz Boodles had stirred up since it launched.
"The food was awesome and I'm impressed by how good it was, given that they just opened," Angela S. from St. Louis wrote on Yelp. "I can see me being a regular here."
Boodles serves pork, brisket, chicken, turkey and ribs, but for a BBQ joint, reviewers' favorite part of the meal was vegetarian.
"The fried biscuits also add something too," wrote Marty M. on Yelp. "Not like some bbq places who give you bread, or some rolls that you can throw through bulletproof glass, these are not actually crunchy on the outside, but almost a step down from crunchy. Inside is all fluffy and warm. Perfect for the honey that sits on the table with the sauces."
Reviewers on Foursquare agree: "Fried biscuits a MUST!" said Scott B.
Boodles, opened by Jonathan Seitz, the founder of Bandana's Bar-B-Q, filled a building that once held the Wendy's on Gravois, and no one seems to mind.
"Oh, Boodles BBQ. You've made me forget all about how much I miss that Wendy's that used to be where you are now," said Angela S. on Yelp.
