I heard about Pappy's on the Food Network. They were competing against 17th Street BBQ. Pappy's received 2nd place but I may disagree. Pappy's is excellent-they have the best ribs I've ever had. There was a 45 minute wait at Noon on a Sunday but well worth it. For $21 I got a full slab, baked beans and sweet potato fries. I also had sweet tea. This is a must stop if you're visiting St. Louis.
