I was recently in St. Louis. Found some great stuff, like Nasiib (3445 S Grand; 314-664-4143), a great Somali; great Aussie meat pies at The Silver Ballroom (4701 Morganford; 314-832-9223), and magically over-achieving short order work at The Buttery Restaurant (3659 S Grand Blvd; 314-771-4443), I came up short on ribs.

I didn't even look at the big box rib places downtown. I did make a pilgrimage to legendary Roper's Ribs in the north, but found them really really mediocre (good snouts, though).

I did spot one out-of-the-way place that looked like it could be good: Taylor's Place (4064 S Grand Blvd, 314-457-0130), but it was closed when I got there.

Has anyone tried it? If not, is anyone willing to take one for the team?

Also, if you haven't tried the mashed potatoes at Schlafly Tap Room, you've missed something great. Waxy and al dente, with magical faux-brown sauce (it's a long story).
