This is the only place that will go to when I want BBQ. Nice family and good food, what more could you ask for. Best to call your order in., cause the wait can be long

My brother and I traveled across the country. From Denver to Charleston. We ate at some great BBQ joints. We got the Rib Tips, they were the BOMB! Denise Roper made it feel like we were eating in her kitchen. She came out and we chatted for a while. Get there early, it gets busy during lunch and don't have... More

I'd been craving good bbq & Roper's Ribs didn't fail my taste buds. I wasn't sure of what I wanted so I choose the pick 3 combination meal and all of my choices where delicious. The plate was a little pricey in my opinion but it was worth it as a treat to myself .

In the area for business and found this amazing BBQ joint. I had the pulled pork sandwich with the potato salad. Delicious! Whenever I get sent to the St. Louis area for work again I know I'll be stopping back for more.

I lived in KC for 20 years and I lived in Texas for 20 years - both places certainly known for their BBQ. However Mr. Roper serves up the best ribs (and slaw) I've ever eaten. Fall off the bone perfection, and I didn't even need sauce. Just fantastic! I felt just like Francis eating at Fred's...for those of you... More

We just visited Roper's Ribs today by searching for a BBQ place in North County. We arrived and the owner was so welcoming! She explained to us what meats were available and called out the order for accuracy several times. We decided to stay and eat since we had a few more errands to run. When she realized we were...

Some friends introduced me to Roper's today, and I guarantee I'll be going back for more. The baby back ribs were delicious, tender, flavorful, and nicely sauced. The potato salad was very good, and the lady behind the counter could not have been friendlier. I plan to try many more dishes over time. I just wish I still worked in... More

This place is horrible, the service is bad and the food is not number 1 in St Louis. The owner who works the counter is not friendly at all and has no customer service skills. I ordered a rib tip Sandwich and combo and it took a hour and half to get the food. They were out of a lot... More
