I have lived my while life eating texas bbq, and cooking in restaurants and these are by far the best ribs I have ever had. Tender, juicy, perfectly smoked and fall off the bone good. If you leave texas and visit St. Louis, you must stop here. Only a couple of tables, but once you sink your teeth into those... More

Headed to the airport, Roper's Ribs was a nice quick stop for some good BBQ. My co-workers and I came in from a long drive and were pretty hungry. Ms. Roper made us feel at home. She was very professional and accommodating. I had rib-tips while my co-workers ate half-slabs. We enjoyed our food and left very satisfied. As a... More

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!

We went to St Louis to try bbq. The two locations we were thining of trying were both closed on Sundays. We found Roper's Ribs. We couldnt have been happier!! 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
