Vote for St. Louis' Most Underrated Barbecue

Our call for nominations for St. Louis' most underrated barbecue yielded both traditional barbecue joints as well as restaurants that happen to serve excellent 'cue (or so you say). We waived our arbitrary wand to eliminate a couple of spots because they are too new to be considered underrated or overrated.

We narrowed the list down to four spots. We're also leaving a write-in option.

Lil' Mickey's Memphis Barbeque (1020 Cave Springs Boulevard, St. Peters; 636-922-4227)

kuskagod: The chopped pork shoulder is amazing. My favorite BBQ sauce in town.

Mi Hungry Catering & BBQ (8660 St. Charles Rock Road, Overland; 314-427-3368)

knoxes2el: Just the name should get them on the list, but the food is amazing, the portions are large, the staff is friendly. It should be on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. Don't let the outer appearance fool you -- and try the jerk chicken while you're there, too.

Roper's Ribs (6929 West Florissant Avenue, Jennings; 314-381-6200)

Cdollarsign: I am going to throw Roper's Ribs on the list. I have never had a bad meal there, and it actually assembles some sort of St. Louis style while Pappy's et. al. are a assimilation of nation wide styles.

The Shaved Duck (2900 Virginia Avenue; 314-776-1407)

corinn45: There are several restaurants that serve up excellent pulled pork, but it's not their sole genre of cuisine: ...Shaved Duck (also serving up remarkable pork flatbread with bacon and pulled pork!)...

The Shaved Duck is NOT underrated. Yes, the food is good, but it's impossible to get a seat.

Lil Mickey's was awesome when we had it 2 weeks ago. Couldn't believe how good the ribs were.

I was really not that impressed by Lil Mickey's (reminds me of typical 'St Louis bbq' swimming in Maul's), if anyone in St Peter's needs a nod ... it's Stumpy's

We had Lil' Mickey's 2 weeks ago and were SHOCKED at how delicious it was. Awesome ribs, brisket, and pulled pork. The sauce was fantastic.
