I once — back in the early ’80s — had a great steak at Stan Musial’s. Is it still around? The best part of the meal was meeting Stan Musial.
Don’t leave town without dessert at the original Ted Drewes, particularly if you’re in town on a warm summer evening…phenomenal Frozen Custard from a real Route 66 roadside stand…it’s history for heaven’s sake! My St.Louis native friends grew up eating Emo’s Pizza and it seems there’s an Emo’s on every corner…definitely an acquired taste, but you’ve gotta try it (try it but don’t expect to be wild about it if you’re not a St. Louis native!). Any of the great Italian resaurants on "The Hill" can make me happy. And for a casual evening meal, the Schlafly Brewpub on Locust Street is a great meal at a great price. Man, I’d like an order of toasted ravioli. My two cents…
I’ve only eaten at one St. Louis restaurant that I can remember the name. That was Favazza’s Italian "on the Hill". I thoroughly enjoyed it.
I think the best restaurant I have ever eaten at is Stefanina’s – Troy. The pasta’s and prime rib are out of this world and the pizza compares to non other. I love the fact that this restaurant is in an old catholic church. It is just beautiful.
I have eaten at Annie Gunn’s. It is good–not cheap.
I have not been to either restaurant you name in O’Fallon, but I have been to Stefanina’s in Troy, MO. It’s in the old Catholic Church, and the food is good. I’ve had pizza; others in the group had sandwiches.
My kids have a hard time bypassing Cunetto’s and Amighetti’s on the Hill. Both have pretty solied Italian food and sandwiches and are kid friendly. Cunettos can have a signficant wait unless you pop in right at 5P.
I was visiting St. Louis this past weekend & had two excellent meals: The Druken Fish (we only had the sushi, but the menu was quite extensive) & also Bar Italia – – very tasty.
Several of the places mentioned in this and your other post on St Louis Favorites are corporate chains; P.F. Changs, Smokey Bones, and Bahama Breeze. We don’t typically discuss chains here as every one knows about them and they are antithecal to the concept of RoadFood.
Yia Yia’s (pronounced Ya Ya’s) is a small chain and I would recommend it. Very good apps and creme brulee.
Seamus McDaniel’s is basically a bar but has a fairly decent menu. Very good hamburgers.
A favorite place for children would be Fitz’s on The Loop in U City.
