We arrived around 2:30 on a Saturday and waited almost an hour in line to place our order. They did a great job managing the line and making sure people were ready when it was time to order. We tried the ribs, brisket, pulled chicken, and burnt ends. The ribs and brisket were incredible. The chicken was some of the... More

I had no idea! We were passing through from Texas and my husband told me to find a BBQ place to eat so I went to Trip Adviser and went to work. Thank goodness I found Pappy's because I'm not sure anything else would have come close to the awesomeness! Who knew they were famous? I didn't, but now I... More

Met 4 coworkers for Sunday lunch. I parked at 11 am while I waited for the rest of my party to show up - let me tell you how many cars spilled in and how crowded it got while I was waiting! Sunday hours are 11-4 or when they run out of food! Despite the mass of people funneling into... More

The chef stated that the rib meat would just fall off the bones and we will be loving every minute of it. The ribs were OK they were a little tough and the meet was just average certainly wasn't a place that I would say was one of the best barbecue in St. Louis.

Unless you enjoy standing in line for two hours or so on the weekend, why not save yourself the hassle and try takeout? Our first visit passing through St. Louis we stood in the barely moving line in the hot sun for 20 minutes. I moved maybe two feet. The woman behind me kept inching up on me, as if... More

Don't go for dinner if you want food it's not worth the trip out of downtown. Got there at 6 on a Thursday and they didn't have ribs. By the time we left they only had brisket left. They only make food for the day and when they are out they close. Heard about this style before but they had... More

I visited for lunch after reading reviews on Trip Advisor. I would rate the ribs a 8.0 and BBQ baked beans 9.5. The ribs had a good flavor but where not "fall off the bone". I am from the south and very picky about BBQ. I'm sure most folks would give the ribs a 9-10. Be sure to get there... More

We enjoyed going to Pappy's Smokehouse, my husband was a little disappointed that they didn't serve beer to go with his ribs. I got the brisket, it was good, but not near as good as the ribs. Next time, I will get ribs!
