The Scoop: Highlander Pub & Grill to become St. Louis Ribhouse

February 25th 11:02am, 2016



Super Smokers BBQ owner Terry Black is bringing his award-winning barbecue inside the St. Louis city limits. Located at 5656 Oakland Ave., St. Louis, the Highlander Pub & Grill will become St. Louis Ribhouse, as reported by St. Louis Magazine, but the menu has already changed to reflect the new concept. Highlander owner Bill Liebe brought Black on as managing general partner and tasked him with revamping the menu.

“The heart and soul is the same (as Super Smokers),” Black said. “But the rubs, seasonings and some sauces are different.”

Among the new sauces is the Hawg Glaze, which is a thinner, tomato-based sauce that is lightly sweet with a spicy finish. Ribs will feature prominently on the menu, as will pulled pork, chicken, shrimp and brisket. Meat will be smoked over a combination of apple wood and oak pellets.

The interior will remain largely the same, still able to seat 150 diners in addition to three semi-private rooms, but in the coming months, customers can expect the installation of a counter-service area for busy lunch-goers and a whole hog Tuesday dinner special available by the plate.

Black said he is excited for the opportunity to be close to a hotel and bring St. Louis barbecue to out-of-towners. “We truly want to be good ambassadors for the St. Louis region. This is our way of trying to present St. Louis as a good place. Our vehicle is good food,” he said.
