Really terrific NY style deli, with corned beef, pastrami and lots more. Also St. Louis style bbq. Big on sports motif, screens and signed baseballs everywhere. Huge portions for moderate prices. Very popular, crowded. it's in t he suburbs, not so close to airport or downtown.

This place was a real gem. Something for everyone! Great ribs, sandwiches, salads. Even matzo ball chicken soup! Also had vegetarian and gluten free options. Everyone was happy here. Kids and adults alike. Also excellent for our large family group of 16.

The decor in Lester's Clayton is outstanding. Full of sports memorobilia and plenty of TVs. It has a clean fresh look despite having been around a while. It tends to attract a more up market crowd and prices reflect that. Its in Clayton so that shouldn't be a surprise. Service was decent however the kitchen was slow and one of... More

This was one of my first BBQ experiences as a Canadian traveller in the US. Lester's was recommended by our Missouri-based friends. My husband had the brisket (yum!!); my daughter and I had the ribs with their delicious coleslaw, baked beans and potato salad (all amazing!); and my son had the traditional St. Louis toasted ravioli, which he really enjoyed....

After recommendations from friends, we tried Lester's for lunch. Had the brisket sandwich with potato salad and slaw. The brisket sandwich was large and tasty. the potato salad and slaw were both mayonnaise based and delicious. The lunch crowd was full so we had a ten minute wait. Service was prompt and friendly. Will be coming back to try more... More

Lester's has always had a great reputation. Their food is good the atmosphere is good and during baseball games they provide some pretty good drink specials. The chopped salad in their deli sandwiches are superb.

Met family members to spend some time with out of town visitor. Food was very good. I am partial to roast beef sandwiches and their French Dip was very good. Everyone was pleased with their choices as well. I will go back to try again since they smoke their own and it smelled SO good. Large space and somewhat noisy... More

A wide section of deli foods which leans towards the average audience, not strongly towards the Jewish Deli atmosphere. Great brisket sandwich. Good sports restaurant.
