Was in Saint Louis last weekend and had to check out Pappy’s. It did not disappoint. The line was intimidating when I walked in but didn’t have to wait nearly as long as I thought that I would (20 minutes or so). The ribs were...More

Delicious food! We had ribs, pulled pork, burnt ends, applesauce, sweet potato fries, and the corn on the cob was the best we’d ever eaten! Not a disappointment! Over $40 for lunch but well worth it!

Pappy’s is the most incredible barbecue place in the world!!! Where to start? The atmosphere is just perfect for barbecue, not high brow, but not dumpy, either. But I don’t go to Pappy’s for the atmosphere. I go for the food. Every meat I’ve had...More
