Pappy's makes no apologies. Their Memphis style barbecue, with the meat as the main attraction and the sauce as a perk, brings in meat mavericks from all over the city. Located near SLU's campus and frequented by famished students, Pappy's has become such a popular attraction that the kitchen sells out every night, so closing time varies. On weekends, don't risk waiting until the evening to get a fix because you may go home disappointed. With a reasonably priced menu and pure, uncut fully flavored meat by the platter or the pound, dieters need not even bother. Pappy's may be single-handedly responsible for the freshman 15 around these parts.
Words cannot describe how good the food, service and atmosphere is at this restaurant. My wife and I saw this place on Man vs. Food and we were not disappointed. The lines is long, but WELL worth the wait. We were greeted by the owner when we arrived…nice touch! We ordered a platter and enjoyed everything. Try the ribs, pulled pork, pulled chicken and make sure to drink one of those local root beers. The fried corn on the cob is a unique draw as well. This place has raised the bar on BBQ for me and has left me comparing other places to Pappy’s, but honestly there is no comparison.
