I lived in KC for 20 years and I lived in Texas for 20 years - both places certainly known for their BBQ. However Mr. Roper serves up the best ribs (and slaw) I've ever eaten. Fall off the bone perfection, and I didn't even need sauce. Just fantastic! I felt just like Francis eating at Fred's...for those of you... More

We just visited Roper's Ribs today by searching for a BBQ place in North County. We arrived and the owner was so welcoming! She explained to us what meats were available and called out the order for accuracy several times. We decided to stay and eat since we had a few more errands to run. When she realized we were...

Some friends introduced me to Roper's today, and I guarantee I'll be going back for more. The baby back ribs were delicious, tender, flavorful, and nicely sauced. The potato salad was very good, and the lady behind the counter could not have been friendlier. I plan to try many more dishes over time. I just wish I still worked in... More

This place is horrible, the service is bad and the food is not number 1 in St Louis. The owner who works the counter is not friendly at all and has no customer service skills. I ordered a rib tip Sandwich and combo and it took a hour and half to get the food. They were out of a lot... More

I am writing this because I love the BBQ at Roper's Ribs. As hustle and bustle pervades almost all aspects of our lives, sadly, starting about 10 years ago, BBQ in Saint Louis started turning into fast food. You know the places I am referring to. Roper's Ribs is, simply put, the best BBQ in Saint Louis. The sides are... More

St. Louis has many places to go for ribs but Roper's is one of the best! I had them cater a party for me for a large group visiting St. Louis. I paid for delivery which was worth it. The food was delivered as agreed. The meat was packed in small, covered aluminum serving pans. Two pans fit side by... More

My family was visting St. Louis this weekend. We found this lovely place. This was an excellent place to dine for fantastic food while in the company of beautiful people. The BBQ, chicken , brisket, and Polish sausage was so tender. It is one of the best places to come to in St. Louis.
