Still Awesome

This is the fourth time I've visited this city and this BBQ joint. I was pleased to see that they've expanded into the space next door, doubling in size. I brought my co-workers here telling them how great the food is and they were not disappointed. I love the pulled pork and the pulled chicken... read more

We stopped for a quick meal at Pappy's Smokehouse. This was our first taste of Memphis-style barbecue. We each had large pulled pork sandwiches with sweet potato fries and coleslaw. I thought the pork was delicious and moist. My daughter thought the opposite... perhaps she's got more Missouri in her than she knows. She wasn't used to the vinegar coleslaw... More

Good food in a very casual atmosphere. You order and then take your own seat, however seating is pretty sparse. I went with kids and couldn't find a kid appropriate table available which was frustrating. I liked the place but it didn't live up to the hype.

Thought we were going to get small portions. Boy we were wrong. Great atmosphere. As soon as we sat down there was a line going on. Highly recommend to visit this place. All around great service and food.

The best ribs I've ever had! Amazing green beans. Beef Brisket that has such good flavor it doesn't even need sauce. But don't skip the sauce! It's great too!!!! Everything here is good. You simply can't go wrong! If you go between lunch and dinner you have a better chance of missing the line out the door. Regardless, it's worth... More

Yes, there was a line and no, you can't grab a table until you order but they will help you with that and the line moved reasonably fast. The ribs were great - nice and meaty. There are 4 sauces available on the tables. Sweet potato fries are definitely sweet - I would have preferred saltier seasoning. The brisket was... More

It was not crowded, so it was really fast! It was faster than fast food, and the ribs were delicious and soft. I had also the sweet potato and it was the perfect combination.

Good BBQ, great ribs. We went at an a time when they weren't busy. It took us a long time just just figure out how to order. Need better signage. Brisket was fair, not great, but there were super good sides! More expensive than we expected, but we had never been to St. Louis.
