  • Places to eat in St. Louis?

    My BIL is going to be in town in a week or so and was asking me about BBQ joints (I BBQ a lot and participate on some forums).

    Anyway, figured St. Louis probably has some other things it's known for more than BBQ? Anyone know of moderately priced unique type places? No chain restaraunts need apply.

    Best Italian food in the country. Go to "The Hill" in St. Louis and take your pick of dozens of authentic iIalian restaurants making real Italian food cooked by real Italians.

      Darn, he's from an Italian (and I mean un hyphenated Italian) family. But who knows, he might be in the mood for some.

      St.Louis+Italian, wouldn't have thought it; too far from the Ocean.

        The Hill is fantastic... not just authentic, great food, but dozens of family restaurants, many of which are ran by the family who lives upstairs... and work downstairs. Some authentic Italian Family Groceries as well, deli counters, sit down 5 start dining, pizza parlors, etc.

        To give this a baseball angle.... Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola's boyhood homes are across the street from each other on Elizabeth Avenue on "The Hill." Easy access off the Interstate too.


        There are some nice, neighborhood restaurants in the Soulard Market area, south of downtown. The Anheuser-Busch Brewery is close as well, some good stuff there too. University City (Saint Louis U) has lots of trendy, young crowd, pubs/restaurants. There is always downtown as well. Ted Drewes (two locations, both South) has been serving authentic Frozen Custard for nearly 100 years and is a St. Louis classic....

        Have fun!

          Lots of Italian immigrants - which explains all of the Catholics/two official Basilicas/and a Pope visit/high number of kids playing soccer.

            Look for a big arch. You should be able to get a burger and fries there.

                  My son and I (from Chicago...huge White Sox fans) adopted the Cards as our "B" team couple of years ago. Went on a Cardinal forum and asked for rib recommendations as well. Happy to report we've made four seperate trips and each time have gone to Super Smokers (right off 44...1/2 hour ride out of StL). The ribs are the BEST, their sauces (6) are AMAZING...you will NOT be disapointed!

                    Pappy's Smokehouse on Olive Street near the central west end is pretty good. But this is a short car ride from the ballpark (not exactly within walking distance if that's what the original poster was looking for).
