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... More

After watching about ribs on Food TV all day, we decided to find a place close to our home in St Louis MO to get ribs for dinner. My husband found Ropers so we decided to give them a try. Such a lucky find! We got two St Louis style full racks of ribs, foot long polish, beans, coleslaw, fries... More

We visited Roper's on June 17, 2014. We heard about Roper's Ribs before heading to St. Louis via a St. Louis Cardinals broadcast and Google searches for "St. Louis Style Ribs." We are huge BBQ fans, and being from Texas we've had it all over Texas, as well as other BBQ hot spots like Kansas City, Memphis, and North Carolina.... More

I know this is a bold statement but if you've ever been here and experienced their out of this world BBQ, you know i'm not exaggerating. Their ribs, pulled pork, jumbo shrimp and peach cobbler are out of this world. Furthermore, the family that owns and operates this BBQ paradise are some of the nicest people i've ever met. They...

We ventured off the beaten path to Roper's. This is a small establishment, maybe 3-4 tables, seemed like most locals take out. The staff was very friendly, the owner came out and chatted a bit. They explained and offered suggestions which is always nice. We had the St. Louis ribs (they were out of baby back), pulled chicken, fried shrimp... More
