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

I am writing this because I love the BBQ at Roper's Ribs. As hustle and bustle pervades almost all aspects of our lives, sadly, starting about 10 years ago, BBQ in Saint Louis started turning into fast food. You know the places I am referring to. Roper's Ribs is, simply put, the best BBQ in Saint Louis. The sides are... More

St. Louis has many places to go for ribs but Roper's is one of the best! I had them cater a party for me for a large group visiting St. Louis. I paid for delivery which was worth it. The food was delivered as agreed. The meat was packed in small, covered aluminum serving pans. Two pans fit side by... More

My family was visting St. Louis this weekend. We found this lovely place. This was an excellent place to dine for fantastic food while in the company of beautiful people. The BBQ, chicken , brisket, and Polish sausage was so tender. It is one of the best places to come to in St. Louis.

Great tasting ribs done in a unique style billed as the best in St. Louis. Best for takeout. Pleasant owners . Unsure if the neighborhood is safe, but worth the trip.

We went due to ratings but the food was so so. I'm from Texas and my husband from St. Louis and we wanted short ribs. Wasn't that great or what I expected.
