Our story begins in a small town
At the heart of every tight-knit community is a handful of traditions. In 1946 a new tradition began in the picturesque community of Perryville, Missouri: Ewald's Bar-B-Q.
Straight from being a cook in the U.S. army, Ewald Buchheit used the skills he knew best to start his restaurant. Decades later, his dream continues through the third family generation and remains an icon throughout the community.
Because variety is the spice of life. Right?
We have a little bit of everything, for just about everyone –
and we aren't fans of heavily processed foods.
You'll find fresh, hickory smoked turkey, beef, and pork here!
