EJ's Urban Eatery
Rustic outpost for eclectic BBQ
Modern technique meets Southern tradition inside this West Bottoms counter-serve meat-and-three joint, where chef John Cedric Smith (801 Chophouse, Pig & Finch) dishes up smoked meats, hot fried chicken and classic sides, plus beer and cocktails. Tin ceilings, bare beams, a long wooden bar and exposed brick complete the down-home vibe.

Great food and great atmosphere. I enjoyed the salmon and avocado toast special today. I wasn't sure about the blood orange segments, but it was a delightful addition. The side salad was as well dressed as the one I had last time. I went today with a friend and he was equally satisfied with his meal. Given his height, plus his wheelchair, most tables are too short for him, but the tables here are the perfect height. We ordered the white chocolate bread pudding and it did not disappoint.

This is probably my favorite place in the city. The food is always amazing, the staff is always friendly, the vibe is laid back... What's not to love? All of my favorite comfort foods made to order but with amazing, high end ingredients and presented beautifully. You can come here in work clothes or for date night and it all fits the bill. We are even having our rehearsal dinner here... They do that, too! I don't even like pancakes, but the ones here are to die for. Fluffy inside, crispy outside, topped with strawberry preserves... Dreamy. And don't leave without dessert. Everything is good. Yes, EVERYTHING.

Seriously some of the best food I've enjoyed in a long time. The staff was on it. I actually met the owner and his business partner/head chef, who were there checking on every table personally, and they treated cousin and grandpa and I like we were somebody important... But forget about that. I went there for food, and it was a amazing! It felt like a combination of fine dining, and South comfort food. Very fairly priced. I got an entree (meatloaf, by far the best I've ever had) and my choice of 3 sides for like $12. Beer was as cheap as $2, and that wasn't even on special. They had some interesting stuff on the menu that I've never tried before which is always something I like to see when I go out to eat. We're going back for the old man's birthday I guess. I've only ever written 3 reviews on Google, with this one being my 3rd, so that tells you somethinh
