Restaurant Review Round-Up: Sugarfire Smokehouse

See what area eaters are saying about this relatively new restaurant in Olivette.

The newest eatery on the scene in Olivette is Sugarfire Smokehouse, which opened in late September in the site of the former Dickie's BBQ at 9200 Olive Boulevard.

The restaurant mixes barbecue with burgers and vegetarian options along with a generous helping of sweet desserts to choose from.

In the short time it's been open, Sugarfire has been able to generate a healthy helping of reader reviews from local food sites such as Urbanspoon and Yelp — most of them positive.

"I've had the pulled pork, brisket, turkey and homemade sausage, and everything is excellent," wrote Zach V. on Sugarfire's review on Yelp. "I actually just got back from Memphis yesterday, and Sugarfire stands up to anything I have had down there."

Brendan G. also had great things to say about the restaurant's barbecue and desserts, but dinged Sugarfire on its hard-to-navigate layout, which forces diners to push through a line to get refills on their beverages.

"Best barbecue, bar none, I've had in St. Louis," wrote JFCoaching on Urbanspoon's listing for Sugarfire. "Didn't think anything could beat Pappy's. But, the brisket and ribs here do it."

Some criticized the restaurant for its prices and a few other minor issues, but in general, reviews online have been positive so far.
