Famous Daves-WAY too much liquid smoke.
Rudolphs is good and sweet.
Dickies-havent been there but folks rave about it saying its much better than FD.
Market BBQ-I used to love it, but recently the ribs seem too dried out.
My personal favorie is Big Daddys Saturday BBQ on University and Dale in StP.
And I know its pretensous, but MY BBQ is really the best. Pork ribs on a low heat for a long time. I have a dry rub receipe that I found a few years ago. The technique is what makes the so unbelievable.
Boil the ribs for 30-45 min take them out of the water and immediately put the rub on. The heat and moisture makes the rub MELT into the meat.
I make a sauce too that has Apple Schnapps in it. WOW!!!
