Our family has been eating at Phil's for years and we love their BBQ. The ribs and porksteaks are always great and the sauce is our favorite. Not at all deserving of such negative reviews.

I live nearby and decided to try Phil's for luch one day. The food is nasty. Both my Pulled pork sandwich and my boyfriend's combo plate of briscuit and ribs were hardly edible. Sauce is gross, meat was tough. Not good BBQ by any

Me and my husband decided to go to Phil's because they are in the neighborhood and like to support our local small business--but when we brought this bbq home we could not even eat it, ended up giving it to our dogs, that was the biggest

I have lived in Memphis, and visited KC. Both have outstanding BBQ.

Next time I am in St.Louis I will have to try some of the other recommended bbq...b/c I went to Phils and it was literally the worst meal I have ever had in my life. The ribs were bland, the pork steak was thin and WAY over cooked, the pulled pork was watery, slimy and just plain nasty. The place was just an all around miserable experience. I enjoy all kinds of bbq...dry, wet, sidewalk vendor, upscale restaurant...it doesnt matter ill try it and usually like it. HOWEVER, this place was just HORRID. They serve your food in a pool, LITERALLY A POOL, of bbq and water mixture. You cant even taste the meat whether it is too bland, or just too over sauced. I will try Roper, Bandanas, or maybe some of the others...but ill jump off the arch before I waste money at Phils again.

Im about to vomit just thinking about that meal again.
Just miserable...they should put it out of business...for those of you who like it; please travel 4 hours south to Central BBQ or Neelys I-55 BBQ in Memphis.
Or go to Kansas City and try Fiorellas Jack Stack BBQ, or Ruston, LA for the Rib Shack, Baton Rouge, LA for Podnahs, Dreamland in Alabama...and ANY OTHER BBQ PLACE YOU CAN FIND. If you think this food is good, you dont know good BBQ. Its disgusting. The Ribs at Chilis are better...just terrible.

Phils is always the same. Good food, ok service, and a dump. But dumps generally have the best food.

Don't drive to this place. I'm sure it's nice but it's located in the STL suburb of St. George (ZIP 63123), a notorious speedtrap and if you google "st. george, mo police" you'll find out how nasty their cops are.

It was alright. Restaurant quaint, service ok, food standard. I wouldn't go back. Tattooed waitress was frightening, lol. I recommend Bandanas or Richard's Ribs.

I have been going to Phil's for forty years now. Food is good, value is high. Service can sometimes be spotty. Since place is small, seconf-hand smoke can be a problem at times--best to sit as far back as possible.

I appreciate good bar be que and this place has potential to be the best around here. Friendly service, but not fast, and not real new looking inside, it looks really country, but its charming atmosphere. The food is good, not great, and not woth paying thirty dollars for a family's meal!!
