This place is one of my favorites. Truly a hidden gem in Kirkwood. I'm constantly looking for Groupons. It is a small place with limited seating, but I love how the tables are set up so you may potentially share a table with a complete stranger. Every time I go there, I always try a different combination. The menu is... More

A brand new Pot Belly has opened right across from Lindenwood University in St Charles, Missouri. Located in the new strip mall on First Capital Drive it serves freshly made sub sandwiches, soups, and salads. Everything is fresh, soups made daily and made to order. They have a limited menu and topping but do an excellent job in preparing your... More

Jason & Sam were a warm welcome for my first visit. Hospitable and very informative on how and what to order. I opted for the tofu bowl with rice noodles in a combination miso yaki sauce loaded with fresh veggies. I paired my delicious bowl with a glass of Sauvignon Blanc wine and ended with a banana brownie. Sam warned... More

A friend told me about The Hot Pot, but only recently did I go there to eat. What a treat! The meal was delicious and gluten free! They cater to you having a meal your body can enjoy! Each person's food is made to order, so you know exactly what you are getting. The service was excellent. The owner's daughter... More

I have been going to hot pot for a couple years now, I have just never made a review. I am very particular about healthy food, so I don't go to just any restaurant. The food has to be at least local, which is what I love about Hot Pot. I really like the hot pot bowl, with all of... More

We got very lucky to arrive during a lull before dinner service. The restaurant is very small and all of their mains are made to order in an open kitchen. You place your order, pay the bill at the counter and your food is served to you. The menu is wide, deep and quite tasty. They also have a super... More

Having been on the AIP (autoimmune protocol) diet for the past 4 months, it has been all but impossible to eat out. Restaurants simply do not know how to accommodate such a restrictive diet (and really I can't blame them). My wife had found Hotpot and when we went for the first time, I was in shock that they had... More

Be careful if you try to use a groupon for the free bowl and drink. We went tonight and they charged us $36. We asked if that included the groupon and the girl said yes. Mind you, we had already paid $18 for the groupon. You don't get a receipt, so afterwards I added up our bill and it didn't... More

So I've been eating here now for a couple of months and can't get over how great the food is! I switched to a Paleo diet in January of this year and have struggled with where to go to get a good lunch which follows the Paleo protocol to even a limited degree. You should go and give it a... More

I love this place. It's a block from my home...and thank goodness because even if it was 10 miles away I would still frequent it as often as I do. Which is pretty much every week. Maybe every other. We have been coming here since they first opened and I really can't find one thing to complain about. The owners,... More
