Pappy’s Smokehouse is a BBQ restaurant located in Saint Louis, MO, named in honor of the late Jim “Pappy” Emerson. Pappy was a beloved friend, mentor, and family member to the owners, and his simple yet hardworking nature is reflected in the atmosphere of the restaurant. Visitors can expect to enjoy great food and good times in a welcoming outdoor setting, just as Pappy would have wanted.
I normally avoid restaurants with wait times, but this one is always worth waiting for. If you like BBQ, there is no better option.
Pappy’s Smokehouse serves up some amazingly awesome ribs that are well worth the 30-minute wait we experienced to be seated. The staff are super friendly and efficient, constantly sanitizing and turning over tables quickly to provide a great dining experience. Our orders arrived piping hot within just 5 minutes of being seated. We also tried the delicious brisket and pulled pork, while the sides were equally impressive, especially the deep-fried corn on the cob and green beans.
We’re already looking forward to our next visit to Pappy’s Smokehouse. Thank you for the fantastic food and experience!
