Named Best Ribs in America by the Food Network
and Best BBQ in Missouri by Southern Living!
Welcome to Pappy's Smokehouse!
Great food. Good times.
The name of our BBQ joint is a tribute to the late Jim "Pappy" Emerson. He was our brother, uncle, friend and mentor.
Pappy kept things simple. He loved the outdoors and he worked hard. When people came to visit, he tried always to provide an atmosphere for great food and good times. A perfect description of Pappy's Smokehouse today.
We look forward to seeing you real soon at Pappy's Smokehouse Midtown St.Louis and St. Peters, Missouri locations! ~ John, Macchi, Brian and Niki
THE PAPPY'S EXPERIENCE
LOW AND SLOW.
SAUCE ON THE SIDE.
NOTHING TO HIDE.
Prepared fresh daily, we serve the best Memphis Style BBQ right here in our conveniently located midtown St. Louis restaurant.
We make it fresh for you, slow smoking our meats up to 24 long hours over sweet apple or cherry wood.
Finish off your choice of smoked meat with a selection of three delicious BBQ sauces - Sweet Baby Jane, Original or HooDoo Sauce.
*SERVING FRESH PRODUCT DAILY MEANS...
we sometimes close early when we sell out of all items;
which is why our closing hours are 4'ish and 6'ish.
"The opportunity to serve more than 4 million guests from around the globe since opening in 2008 and bring a great experience to those coming to our city has been a rewarding journey.
We're excited to see what the next 15 years brings!
