Lampert's Plush Pig Barbeque - Closed

2811 S. McKnight Road Rock Hill, MO 63119 | Webster Groves | 314-961-8888

Location Description:

Larry Lampert and his daughter and business partner Angie have relocated their barbecue restaurant from Clayton to Rock Hill. The new space is at least twice as big as the old location, but the menu remains much the same, with pulled pork, chicken and brisket available as sandwiches or as part of platters. Pork spare ribs are available not only as half and full slabs but also as a serving of three or even one rib. The signature sauce is tangy, ever so sweet and just spicy enough to dampen your brow.
