ST. CHARLES ( -- The owner of popular barbeque restaurant Salt and Smoke says they will open their third location on historic Main Street in St. Charles.

"We have a location in St. Louis County and St. Louis City so St. Charles felt like the next best fit," said Tom Schmidt, owner of Salt + Smoke. "We like to feed a lot of people."

Their first location was in The Loop and the recently opened up a location on Hampton Avenue in St. Louis Hills.

The third location will be at 501 South Main Street where Little Hills Winery was located. The winery closed on earlier in June.

"We love St. Charles, it's booming right now," said Schmidt.

Schmidt says they plan to do major renovations inside the building that could take several months. He estimates it would be between six to eight months before opening.
