East St. Louis is a city in St. Clair County, Illinois, across the Mississippi River from St. Louis, Missouri, in the Metro-East region of Southern Illinois. Once a bustling industrial center like many cities in the Rust Belt, East St. Louis has been severely affected by loss of jobs due to deindustrialization during the second half of the 20th century. In 1950, East St. Louis was the fourth largest city in Illinois when population peaked at 82,366. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 27,006, less than one-third of the 1950 census.

Limited seating to probably 20 or so but great food. The Pulled Pork sandwich was delicious even though the pulled pieces were bigger than i like. The sauce was great. The coleslaw was out of this world good and especially on top of the sandwich. You have to try it.

I've had barbeque in Kansas City, Myrtle Beach, Gallup and Albuquerque New Mexico, Pigeon Forge, and Nashville and everywhere I've been the ribs just don't taste right to me because of Pappy's. Easily my favorite place to eat on Earth all the meat is incredible and the sweet potato fries taste like heaven as well.

Four of us stopped here for an early dinner before going to a blues show across the street at Beale on Broadway. Staff were fine, and my order of shrimp and grits was superb.
My second draft Forest Park Pils [the first one was very tasty] came out cloudy, and the server was great at first bringing out another one and then returning it to the bar and taking it off of the tab [cloudy, murky beer that is not supposed to look like an unfiltered wheat beer can be dangerous to my lower unit]. Food came out as oredered and in speedy fashion, so this was a great place to stop before heading to another place for some Kim Massie blues.
