The staff was rude and apathetic even when prompted for suggestions. The pig ear was covered in hair. Everything was drenched in a bland katsup based sauce. It was not anyplace I would return to: run down, mediocre food, bad staff, normal prices.

I was in Saint Louis for 3 days and tried BBQ in 3 different places. Hands down, C&K had the BEST sauce of them all! Family owned for generations, this drive up, take out, spot is worth the extra few blocks off your regular route! They even have snout and pig ear on the menu if you are a bit... More

Visited this establishment years ago. While in St Louis for a few days we decided to give it a try. I had the rib tips and threw away about 3/4 of the meal. The meat was tough and chewy. Sooo disappointed it was good back in the day.

What better place to have St Louis style ribs than St Louis? A little research turned up this place and it was quite a find. The ribs were tender and the sauce perfect. We really enjoyed the potato salad. It had a very nice flavor and texture. As a bonus we tried the hog snoots and they were a pleasant... More

Grew up on C&K and still love it to this today. Rib tips are a must. The potato salad is very sweet and delicious. Have also had the snoot and tripe sandwiches. Very much a hole in the wall place, but worth trying at least once.

I grew up on C&K and hadn't had it in the 12 years I have been away from saint Louis. I googled them to make sure they were still open, & saw some pretty unsubstantiated reviews. C&K is exactly like it used to be. Delicious! Sauce is still the same! I had the rib tips & my husband had a... More

I went to C&K with hopes to find another bbq jewel in this area. I order the spare ribs, pulled pork and snoots. The ribs were awful they were so tough i couldn't even eat them. No smoke flavor, hardly any rub and they tasted boiled. I asked the lady who took my order what kind of wood they use... More

Based on reviews we read on Yelp, we decided to try C& K when we were visiting St. Louis. We decided to stick with ribs. They were good, but not great. We found them to be meaty, but lacking smoky flavor. After we left C &K, we were driving down a nearby street and saw a local vendor with a... More
