Your Pick for St. Louis' Most Underrated Barbecue Is...

As a commenter astutely pointed out, The Shaved Duck (2900 Virginia Avenue; 314-776-1407) is hardly an unknown restaurant. Still, it isn't simply a barbecue joint -- heck, in its original incarnation, it was a gastropub -- and so often doesn't get factored into "Best Barbecue" discussions.

No longer. It was the clear winner of our St. Louis' Most Underrated Barbecue poll. The total of all the write-in votes finished a close second.

Split into individual "Other nominations, the new Lampert's BBQ (11658 Dorsett Road, Maryland Heights; 314-291-0303) received enough write-in ballots to place second overall in a surge that was not at all suspicious.

Our call for nominations for St. Louis' most underrated barbecue yielded both traditional barbecue joints as well as restaurants that happen to serve excellent 'cue (or so you say). We waived our arbitrary wand to eliminate a couple of spots because they are too new to be considered underrated or overrated.

We narrowed the list down to four spots. We're also leaving a write-in option.

We asked you to nominate St. Louis' most underrated fried chicken, and you delivered some really interesting selections. A special shout-out to our Metro East readers (or, at least, readers who spend time on the east side, and not just at the strip clubs) -- Illinois restaurants received several mentions.

Two restaurants nominated more than once that we didn't include are Porter's Fried Chicken (3628 South Big Bend Boulevard, Maplewood; 314-781-2097) and Young's Restaurant & Ice Creamery (206 Meramec Station Road, Valley Park; 636-225-6677). Both have won Riverfront Times' "Best Fried Chicken" honor in the past -- Young's twice.

After the jump, meet the seven semifinalists for St. Louis' most underrated fried chicken.

It doesn't take a genius to pick a sure-thing restaurant for that special night, the one you've been waiting for since you first Facebook-stalked that friend of a friend spotted that special someone across a crowd, the evening when the fire in your heart will finally stoke the fire your loved ones' loins.

Ahem. Where were we?

Ah, yes. You want to eat a great dinner, and you want to get laid, but you know scoring a table at that slam-dunk spot will be too difficult or -- not that you'd admit it to the object of your desire, but it's OK, you're among friends -- too expensive.

Which is where this very special edition of Underrated/Overrated comes into play.

We asked you to nominate St. Louis' most overrated pizza, and you responded. More specifically, many of you -- a clear majority -- named one of two very well known local operations that, as it happens, couldn't be more different from each other. One is a favorite of generations of St. Louis. One is a favorite of many among the St. Louis food media, this publication (and yours truly) included. So overwhelming was the response that we struggled to come up with more than these two nominees.
