Not the greatest neighborhood, but I went during lunch with a few people from work and everything was great. Very small restaurant and you might wait a little while for a table but the food is worth it. Huge sandwiches (BLTs, turkey melts, etc.) and even bigger milk shakes and sundaes. Definitely a place to stop while in St. Louis!... More

I heard about this on MSN.com. They listed the greatest BLTs in America and it was on the list. The BLT is as big as the picture. My wife and I had to split it. They also have great milkshakes

This old soda fountain restaurant is a step back in time and they have plenty of atmosphere. There was a line and we had to wait since the seating is relatively small but once we sat down the service was fast. We tried the egg salad, the famous bacon sandwich (not greasy at all), and, of course some shakes. There's... More

Best malts in St louis. This is a small place and can get busy at lunch, expect a line. Small booths and classic decor, not like the fancy joints. Their Ruben sandwich is great and the heart attack BLT is wonderful. The malts are worth it, always order in because you get the full metal cup which will fill the... More

A long time STL favorite, Crown Candy never disappoints. With their quaint soda shop setting, their food will take you back to the good ole days. The BLT is loaded with so much bacon, it is rediculous, and you must order a sundae to top it off. Anything on the menu won't disappoint. Just get there early, or prepare to... More

Casual dining in a retro venue. The food is wonderful and the candy shop is something to experience. You have to try the BLT!
