Zagat rated one of the best barbeque joints in the nation, literally the day before we went. Lines are long, but worth the wait, get there early though before they sell out. We agree, ribs are amazing, chicken is good, brisket and pulled pork are ok. As for the sides, potato salad and green beans were very good, sweet potato fries were tasty.
Ted Drewes Frozen Custard
You can't say goodbye to summer without having some frozen custard before the season is out. With all the flavor choices for their concretes (think DQ Blizzard only better), malts and sundaes, there's something for everyone.
The Mudhouse (Midtown)
Very good breakfast, excellent coffee and related drinks. Doesn't hurt that the staff are super nice and friendly. Downside is service is slow when they are busy and clearing your own table. Local brewhouse with really great beers and pretty good food. The toffee pudding dessert though was definitely the highlight of the meal. I'd come back for beers and dessert.
Schlafly Tap Room

St Louis Brewhouse Historical Sports Bar
Yeah, the name doesn't make much sense to me either, but the food is pretty darn good. Even though it's in the Hyatt hotel, it way exceeded my expectations for flavor and variety for a hotel restaurant. Having a good assortment of local tap beers and bottles of microbrews is always a nice touch too. Definitely impressed, get the garlic fries!
Pretty good downtown breakfast option, get the crepes or three egg scrambles over breakfast potatoes. The French Toast is good too and they have a lengthy Bloody Mary variety list if that's your thing.
Broadway Oyster Bar
Competes with Brewhouse Historical Sports Bar for second best meal in St. Louis. The chicken wings were very fresh, super crispy and had a unique flavor that was a cross of cajun and buffalo. Nicely done. Jenny had the fish tacos and the rice and beans with Andouille sausage were really good. My oyster po' boy was tasty, loved the sour pickle and slaw on the sandwich. Fun atmosphere for dining outside, a great way to end the day and our trip.
