Travel Off The Beaten Path To Try The Most Mouthwatering BBQ In Missouri

In a small town more than an hour south of St. Louis is a little barbecue joint that has been pleasing crowds since 1946. Ewald Buchheit returned to Perryville, Missouri after serving in the U.S. Army as a chef during World War I and opened Ewald’s Bar-B-Q. Last year Ewald’s celebrated their 70th anniversary, they are the oldest family owned and operated restaurant in Perryville. Find out why over five generations of locals have been returning to Ewald’s year after year.
