If you have been wondering what has been happening at the former Wendy's building on Gravois, and you like meat, then you are in luck.
The building will reopen soon as Boodle's BBQ, a southern style barbecue restaurant from Jonathan Seitz, the founder of Bandana's Bar-B-Q, which has locations around St. Louis.
Seitz sold Bandana’s five years ago, and now, along with partner Christ Makos, hopes to open Boodle’s around the end of September or early October.
Seitz said that the 55-seat restaurant will have a “lodge-y” feel, with wood walls and potato sacks hanging as light fixtures. The restaurant plans to focus on being family friendly and offering quick service a cut above fast food.
What should you try when it opens? Seitz recommends the ribs, or anything pork. Boodle’s will also offer traditional sides, all of which are homemade.
Boodle's will open at 10024 Gravois Rd., across from Grasso Plaza.
