I read all of the great reviews here, so my mother, husband and I made it a point to go there while we were in St. Louis. We drove 30 minutes each way through a very bad neighborhood. After getting our food, we waited the 30 minutes back to the place we were staying before we ate it. During the... More

Visited Roper's this week while in St. Louis on business. Read the reviews and got cautiously excited (because they were almost too good to be true). As it turns out--the reviews and many awards that Roper's has earned over the years are well earned. I think that the baby back ribs helped restore my faith in all of humanity. I... More

We went here because we wanted to taste the "best bar B Que in St Louis" and Ropers did not disappoint. They were friendly, beautiful people who can really make some excellent food. Go here. If you're hungry, you will leave full!

The setting is exactly what we were looking for for good bbq. Mrs. Roper behind the counter was one of the friendliest most talkative people i have ever met. She... More

The meat is tender and easy to chew. If you know about snouts, they are crispy and will have you tapping your toes. It is best to call in your order and go to pick it up 1/2 hour later to keep from waiting. Nice smoke ring on meat that a true BBQ person woiuld love.

I was browsing for the nearest restaurant in my office here at Emerson and this is included as recommendation and it's just 6mins away. I head on and expecting some cozy restaurant but I was disappointed. It's a small old looking restaurant at the corner of the street with only 3 table for dine in. Well that's just the outer...
