Jennings >Roper's Ribs Inc
Mr and Mrs. Roper are the about the nicest people I have ever met., and they have a true love for everything BBQ. I have vowed to eat here any time I go to St. Louis. The baby back ribs are possible the best food I have ever eaten, and the St. Louis style ribs are also amazing. I am from the south so I am almost never satisfied with pulled pork from anywhere outside of North Carolina or South Carolina, however, Roper's has the best pulled pork I've ever eaten. You could easily drive right past the place, but this is a must stop if you love the Q.
Tenderest Ribs I Ever Had!!!.
Ropers Ribs have the most tender, delicious ribs I have ever eaten. The best lunch I ever had at a catered event. Not one complaint.
The lunch we had the pulled pork, which is soo tasty too. But the Ribs. What can I say about the ribs? If you loev your bbq done right and delicious, then try this place.
Recommendation: baby back ribs and pulled pork.
if u don't know, now u know....
Not only are they great smoker's, they are good people. The service first and foremost is always friendly and courteous. Makes you feel at home with gradma cooking, with the smells teasing your nose from blocks away, of chicken, ribs and snoots, yes SNOOTS, THE BEST. I've had the pleasure of helping them, help me gain weight for years, just finally got around to writing a review, like the rating says walk, don't run, get to Roper's Ribs. It is right there at, Jennings Station Road and West Florissant and if you haven't heard, they brought that TRIPE back, I hope I don't hurt myself, but at least I'll be happy and full if I do.
Get there people, your boy is out...so if u don't know, now u know, u know...
Roper's Ribs is a must stop!. In early August my wife and I stopped at Roper's Ribs on the way to Chicago from Ft Smith, AR. We had heard about Roper's from other reviews and web searches. We sat down at 3:00pm and ordered enough food for 4 people. WOW-it was fantastic St Louis style BBQ! On a side note don't leave Roper's without trying the Shrimp. It is out of this world! Mr. & Mrs. Roper were so polite and cordial they made us feel like family! We talked with them for 20 minutes after we finished eating. Bring your appetite and sit down to some award winning ribs. I'm getting hungry just typing this review! We can't wait to go back. Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Roper!
25 plus years wasted!!!. I have lived in Jennings for over 25 years. I've have heard people talk about Ropers day in and day out but never ever attempted to go purchase any of their food. I wasnt really fond of the location but the officers I work with have always said go in the daytime you'll have nothing to worry about...I wasn't trying to hear them. My brother decided to bring some home one day...his first time eating there too. LOL You should have seen us hovered over that box of rib tips!!! Lawd hav mercy they were the best ribs ever. I was upset that all this time I had been living here I never tried them....Now I will be going as often as I can!!!
THE BEST THERE IS!!!!. Last year and this year we went on an RV road trip just to eat at BBQ places and find the best....last year Ropers was by far the best and this years trip we had to go back and its still the best even after trying a bunch of new places. Some places weve been: LC's (St. Louis) excellent!!, Rondevou (Memphis) excellent sausage and fun, Neeleys (Memphis) very good, Corkeys (Nashville) only thing I liked was the fried pickle, Arthur Bryants (Kansas City) not good to sweet, many others not mentionable. I would have never passed by this place and thought I needed to try it because its small and dingy but WELL WORTH IT. YOU HAVE TO GET IT...I cant stress it enough. Everything from catfish to st. louis style bbq ribs has been excellent, sides are ok but still good.
Artisan ribs. I live iin Minneapolis and commute to St Louis. The trips can get tedious but one thing I always look forward to is Carl's ribs and Denise' cheerful smile. There are no better ribs, anywhere!!!! And the Ropers take pride in what they are do, a rare thing now days.
WOW. We had come to St. Louis for a Rams game, and wanted the best St. Louis style ribs in the area. I read the previos reviews, and they were all true. The best ribs i have ever had. I used to work for a Famous Daves and had thought that those ribs couldn't be beat. Boy was i wrong, not only were they beat, they embarrased. Mr. and Mrs. Roper have a great product and terrific hospitality to boot. Thought i would suggest getting take out if you wanted the kids to enjoy with you, for that part of town isn't one that you want to bring the family out for a nice night out. All in all, Ropers Ribs was the best tasting BBQ that i have ever had and i would recommend it to anyone and everyone. And if you are reading this Mrs. Roper, thanks for the Sud's, and letting us use the bathroom.
Fantastic bbq. I saw so many great reviews on here that I wondered if someone was posting under different names... but I went to check Roper's out for myself and realized why it has such a devoted following. It all begins with the service. Mrs Roper spent 10 minutes telling me all about the cuts of meat and advising me on which dish to go for (apparently the ribs & shrimp combo is the choice of the connoisseur). Then the food! As someone else here said, the sauce is amazing but it doesn't dominate. The meat is the star and the portions were very generous. The Ropers were even kind enough to throw in a taste of other cuts too so I could tell the difference. All in all, a great experience.
Did Not Disappoint.
My father was in from Colorado and said he wanted to try some of the famous St Louis ribs he's been hearing so much about. We took him to Roper's Ribs and they did not disappoint. The ribs, rib tips, riblets, and shrimp were outstanding. It was definitely worth the 20 minute wait.
Roper's is run by Carl and Denise Roper and what the little corner shop lacks in elegance is made up for in superior taste. The rib meat fell off the bone and melted in your mouth. The down home hospitality is felt the moment you walk up to the door. It is pretty much a take out place with people striking up good conversation while they wait on your food.
Definitely worth the trip no matter how far out of the way you have to go to get there.
