Hendricks BBQ’s ribs were noted by the Riverfront Times as having some of the best ribs in the city. We’ve never had them. How good are they?
By Brian Feldt

Have you tried Hendricks BBQ’s ribs?

If not, the Riverfront Times says you’re seriously missing.

According to RFT, Hendricks’ ribs are one of 100 dishes “you must eat right now.”

From the RFT:

The ribs are a standout, succulent, yet you still must bite the meat from the bone — and then dig and scrape and suck to get all the morsels left behind. As it should be. Vanderbeck smokes both baby-back (half-rack $14, full $22) ribs and St. Louis-cut spare ribs (half-rack $12, full $20). The spare ribs are smaller but meatier. A mild dry rub gilds the pork’s natural essence. The baby-back ribs have a stronger woodsmoke profile — a mix of apple and hickory, to be precise — and a charred sweetness to the meat.

You don’t need sauce for these ribs, but if you must there are four available. The sweet sauce is thin and unmemorable. The hot is vinegar-sharp, though the actual heat level is moderate. The “House” is a conventional tomato-based sauce that carries a molasses sweetness and a mild tang. The “STL” sauce is my favorite, featuring malt-vinegar astringency and a lingering bite.

Welcome to Girl Walks Into a Bar, a weekly Gut Check feature that spotlights local bars and bartenders. This week, Kaitlin Steinberg profiles Keyan Still of Hendricks BBQ. Below is a Q&A with Still, followed by his recipe for a “Hendricks’ House Bloody Mary.”

keyan still hendricks

Keyan Still is intent upon talking to everyone who sits at his bar. It doesn’t get in the way of his service. In fact, it adds to it.
If you don’t immediately know what you want, Still will ask you three questions: What’s your favorite wine? What’s your favorite beer? What’s your favorite cocktail?

Based on your answers, he will mix you the perfect drink. Seriously. Go challenge him.

Still started running the bar program at Hendricks BBQ (1200 S. Main Street, St Charles; 636-724-8600) when it opened in September 2012, and he’s been the driving force behind putting the small bar in the giant barbecue restaurant on the map.

Still was originally in marketing, but he grew tired of the cubicle life. While on a trip to Spain when he was 22, he tried alcohol for the first time in the form of a flaming shot. If ever there was a way to start a life devoted to alcohol, that has got to be it. Now, at 28, Still feels like he’s finally caught up to his peers who started drinking at a much younger age. And he also feels like he’s found his passion.

“It’s a learning experience,” Still says of mixing cocktails. “I’ve learned so much more about people and history through drinks than I ever did in school.”

His excitement about spirits is evident when he talks to customers, but also, it seems, when he talks to the rest of the bartending staff. As I was preparing to leave, one of Still’s bartenders pulled me aside to tell me about his boss.

“You know,” he said, “Keyan’s a really good teacher. He trained all the bartenders and servers. There are 300 people in here at some point, and all the servers have to know how to talk to people about the drinks. And that’s all because of his training.”
