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.
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.
Pappy's private banquet space is perfect for a variety of events including graduation parties, rehearsal dinners, bridal and baby showers and off-site business meetings. Let us take the menu planning off your plate. Cater with Pappy's. Your guests will thank you!
