We traveled from Upstate New York to Missouri to visit family in Springfield. Stopped in St. Louis to see niece first
and check out the famous ribs at Pappy’s there. Simply amazing ribs.
When we reached Springfield, The Rib Shack was on our “definite to try list”as it is family owned, not just a franchise.
As we met with co-owner, we explained our “best of” ribs search, she was one of most open, down-to-earth
people we ever met. She offered us a frenzy of various bbq food samples to try while we waiting for our order. Out of this world.
We left with dinner to-go and 3 full racks to take to North Carolina to visit other in-laws.
Their response was that nothing compares to these “fall off the bone ribs” and sauce.
Co-owner said sadly, they will be closing shortly due to lack of business.
Visit them soon so you don’t miss out on these fabulous food.
If enough of you do so, maybe they will be able to stay open.
