I have learned to go hungry because the portions are ample, but I still end up taking home something, and savour every last bite. The Chicken Kabobs (with or without bbq sauce) are great. I always get the slaw and sometime fries (crisp

Terrible service and food

The good- The hot wings as an appetizer were good.

The bad- The waitress forgot to ask what i wanted to drink after asking everyone else. She (and the manage) apparently don't know how to ask the cooks to put turkey on a ham sandwich (didn't seem like a difficult request). The ham sandwich was covered in the most disguisting bbq sauce that immitated ketchup and brown sugar mixed together. I will never come back after driving 2.5 hours to get there the first time. I have never had a waitress huff, puff, and roll her eyes at me after asking her if it was possible to add turkey to a ham sandwich. WTF ppl. Is that what you call service? For the money spent, i'll stay at home and make my self a damn ham/turkey sandwich and add GOOD bbq sauce to it. -Andy

The service is slow and the servers are unprofessional and impolite. The place is filthy. They charge for soda refills. But to be fair, I will say the food is always good and the serving sizes are large.

My husband & I, along w/our friends & family frequent Penny's at least once a month. We've even used them for group holiday parties. They've never once been unprofessional and the food has always been good. The only drawbacks, I would

Prices aren't "cheap", but the value is there. HUGE PORTIONS, GREAT TASTE. No foreign beers, but the bartender makes a good drink. The older waitresses are a little rough, but the younger ones, or the only guy waiter, give good service and very nice. Check out the waitress sections before you sit down and don't choose the older ladies. You'll have leftovers - all dinners are WAY too big to eat in one sitting. BBQ sauce is very good.

Hard to believe this place gets away with calling their food "barbecue". Maybe I'm biased cuz I grew up in KC but this is the worst excuse for food I have had in an establishment to date. Had to run 4 miles when I got home just to work off the sugar high. DO NOT ORDER ANY "PULLED CHICKEN" as it is a soggy mess--should be called "brown sugar paste with pulverized chicken". Even the green beans had a funky taste--how bad a cook do you have to be to mess up green beans?? Waitress neglected to mention the grossly overindulgent portion sizes so we wasted most of our dinners--if it had been edible we could have at least had leftovers for lunch the next day. Also one of our party had to wait over 5 minutes for his food after the rest of us had been served--and my food was barely warm. If I don't wake up in the middle of the night with food poisoning I will call it a miracle. Oh I could go on and on, but the point is--go to Bandana's or some other BBQ chain but never go here.

I took my boys to Pennies BBQ this past weekend as a "treat" for their great report cards. We will not be going back. The staff, including management, was incredibly RUDE. There was a long wait & the place was dirty - urine on the restroom floor. This was my worst experience in a restaurant by far.

Warning....
We were in Penny's Saturday night. My husband and I live in Bridgeton, but we have always felt it's worth the trip to Penny's once a month.

In the middle of the meal, We heard screaming, cursing, and throwing of pans. My heart leaped into my throat, and I couldn't eat. When our waitress came out, the owner passed her and yelled out, "That goes for you too!"

I asked her what on earth was going on. She said he's a horrible man to work for and he treats them all that way, all the time. She said if it wasn't for the close commaradie of the other employees she wouldn't be there.

My husband has been a fan of Penny's for 3 years, and he said we will absolutely not contribute to such a harsh owner. We will not be going back!

Below average food quality & unfriendly staff. You must sit at seperate tables for seperate checks. Do yourself a favor. Go somewhere else.

Decided to try this today with the work lunch crowd as we're BBQ fans - not impressed by any means. The bbq sauce is WAY too sweet - if you like brown sugar mixed with red dye and a little water - this is your place - the sauce was sweeter than my applesauce!! The will not separate checks - and add 18% gratuity on for 5 or more people - but rude staff are included free of charge and are doled out generously. It's not smoked meat - so not real BBQ IMHO - and the meat is drenched, swimming etc in this sauce. The baked beans seem out of a can - applesauce was almost tasteless. Avoid at all costs if you like BBQ - this should not be ranked #4 in St. Louis for Citysearch's 2006 Best BBQ restaurants. I will say the portion size was nice...

Nice family setting. Great food, big big food too. Love to get the steak and hubby likes the pork steak, until I went here I had never seen a pork steak so big before. They don't have refills on soda. Dinners do come with salads tho. The smoking area is right there with the non smoking, so if the resturant is full you will get some smoke with dinner. If only the area would do away with smoking it would all be great then.

PROS: Great food
CONS: Smokers will get you if busy

Barbecue sauce was good, but a bit ketchup-like. Fries were cold and soggy. Beans were OK, but tasted suspisciously like they came from a can. Bartender was smoking while serving "to go" food. Portion size was very large and meat was good quality, though did not taste smoked.

I must have gone on a bad day...The barbecue was okay, but it definitely wasn't anything to write home about. The service was VERY slow. Parking was good and there were plenty seats.

Poor Service, Great Food

Sure the service is slow and the place is small, but the food is great and the portions are huge!! My favorites are the 2 x 10oz BBQ porkchops and the 20oz BBQ chicken kabobs. Each meal is like $7.95 and comes with a salad and a side....the baked potatoes are huge. Great value and a good place for a business lunch.

My family & I gave this place 2 shots. 1st time it was just a rude wait staff but the food was good and a good value for your $. The 2nd time was it. It took over 55 mins to make a hamburger (after the rest of the party had been served) & being rudely informed that "This is NOT a fast food joint, what do you expect". I WILL NEVER GO BACK!!! I tell all of my family & friends to beware of this place. The wait staff is slow, rude, disrespectful and will get down right nasty with an 80 year old man. BEWARE

This place is right by a friend of mines house, so she talked me into going one night. Not only did we wait over and hour the people who worked there where very rude. We finally ended up getting seat and the food was descent but not at the cost of being treated soo poorly. I recomend any place over that.

After hearing a friend boast about this place, and reading reviews, I tried it the other day. I ordered the jumbo pork steak, and WOW! 18oz. sounds big, and looks even bigger. Very, very little fat/waste, and extremely tender. It was well worth just under $10. The most fun in BBQ I have ever had.
