Head and shoulders over Pappys (even though they are owned by the same people ). We had the ribs (excellent) and the pastrami, beans, slaw, fries, pickles. Staff was eager to chat about BBQ traditions and smoking methods, and very helpful overall. No need to go any place else in St. Louis for lunch!

Went here for lunch and even if there was a line, it was worth the wait. The line moved fast enough to serve everyone and the staff is very efficient. The pulled pork and ribs are superb. The place had a good crowd and people who come here know what they want and are no nonsense downing their orders. I... More

We saw that Bogart's was ranked #1 in St. Louis restaurants. There is a reason why. The food is amazing! The cashier recommended the ribs and I took the bait. Wow! Best ribs I have ever had! Somewhat pricy but you get what you pay for.

i have been there several times and have eaten the 1/2 slab of ribs which are very tasty and fall off the bone. Pulled pork sandwiches are tasty as well. 4 different types of BBQ sauce, my favorite Sweet Maeghan Ann which my parents take home with every visit to St Louis. Lots of sides however we always get the... More

We brought out of town guests to Bogart's and as we approached we could smell the BBQ in the air. We arrived at 2:00 on a Saturday afternoon and the restaurant was busy, but not crowded. They only take food orders at the counter as table space opens up, but that wasn't a problem as customers are aware of this... More

Awesome food and stellar service. In town for Thanksgiving and stopped in for a quick bite. The pork rinds were excellent. Had the brisket sandwich with baked beans and coleslaw but kept reaching for my son's pork rinds so had to order extra. Very satisfied with the food and the people are friendly and take very good care of you.

I went to try some St. Louis style ribs and to compare them to Texas. The ribs were amazingly soft....very delicious for any meat lover

Thankfully we read other reviews of Bogart's and knew that they serve until the food runs out or we would have missed out. We showed up around 6:30 on a Saturday night which would be late for a warmer night (it was only 20 degrees that day). There was literally only one 1/2 slab left of the ribs! In short... More

Came here looking for the best St. Louis ribs ever. The ribs are good but I have had better St. Louis outside of St. Louis. Looking for a tad more smoke and to be more moist. The baked beans are outstanding. BYOB. Closes at 4pm weekdays.

Very similar rib to Pappy's smokehouse, which is the best rib in STL. Great rub and fantastic sauces. Where this joint falls short is in sides (not especially good, they were out of everything but pork skins when I came), and atmosphere (the line goes outside, and it was raining). About half an hour wait for lunch on a weekday,... More
