Sugarfire Smoke House

9200 Olive Blvd., Suite 114 Olivette, MO 63132 | Olivette/ Overland | 314-997-2301

Location Description:

The latest venture from prolific restaurateur Mike Johnson (Boogaloo and Roxane, among many others) in partnership with Charlie and Carolyn Downs of dessert palace Cyrano's, Sugarfire offers smoked baby-back ribs, pulled pork, brisket, turkey breast and sausage. The meaty ribs and the brisket, as thickly sliced and deeply flavored as a Sunday roast, are standouts. Sides include baked beans, fries, cole slaw and daily specials like grits and mac & cheese.
