I was out of the country for a year and asked my in laws if they would like to stop by Crown Candy for a BLT. We had one. It is nearly impossible to eat this sandwich without picking off some bacon first as there is a full pound on one sandwich. It was great.

This is definitely a place to visit if you have a sweet tooth or if you like a good BLT! The BLT is known at the "Heart Stopping BLT" and most people find that they can share the BLT sandwich because it is so large. Another good item on the menu is the chili which comes with cheese & onions... More

So really how often should you order and eat one pound of bacon? We had a 45 minute wait. Good street music entertainment. Shake was great, as was my one pound of bacon. Not a healthy thing in sight. Sometimes you just have to binge and this place helps. The candy is very good. The atmosphere is unique. You'll spend... More

Typical dinner inspired menu, but outstanding tastes. Go for two things...the BLT and a malt. And make sure you watch them. Just seeing them whip out the malts and shakes is something to be impressed by...almost as impressive as the pile of bacon on the BLT. Worth every calorie! Expect a wait, but you'll be glad you did. Loved that... More

My mom and I made a side trip to this place after finding out there sandwiches were featured on the travel channel. We got a roast beef sandwich and a BLT and two chocolate malt shakes. First off, it was well worth the wait in line, the malts were light and fluffy and a great chocolate creamy taste. Best we... More

I've lived in St. Louis all of my 60 years and just this summer went TWICE to Crown Candy Kitchen! They open at 10:30am and the line starts then...so be prepared to wait. Crown only holds about 50 people but the crowd turns over pretty quickly. As far as the food...large portions! I've had the BLT which has almost a... More

One of the tastiest sundaes I've had in a long time. Very busy but the staff don't seem overwhelmed by the crowds. Highly recommend the "Crown Sundae". Prices very reasonable and they work quickly to get you seated even during peak times. Although I can understand some of the concerns about the area, at no time did we ever feel... More

I was driving 31/2 hours to meet friends at Crown Kitchen, so it was unrealistic to think we could meet early. I arrived just before noon and they had already been in line for 20 minutes. It was easily another hour before we were seated and 5 of us squeezed into a 4 person booth. Most of us ordered chili... More

We had the BLT, Grilled Cheese, and Hot Dog lunch along with a Chocolate Malt, Strawberry, and Chocolate Shakes, and left with bags of candy to share with family back home. This place was worth the wait in line!

My boyfriend and i are on holiday from Australia and we were told about this gem from locals. We went here about 11:45 on 31/7/2014 but the were too many people outside waiting! We decided to go to the butterfly house. We finished there just after 15:00 so we thought we should go back to Crown Candy, what a great... More
