Our normal dining spots near the Fox were jammed so we decided to try this. Had no idea what to expect. Didn't know it was cafeteria style. While the atmosphere and ambiance is non-existent, I have to give it a 4 star because of the unique experience with the way orders are placed and the quality of the food which... More

I visit hear for dinner two or three times a year. The prices are phenomenal. I wish the food was as good as the prices. Still, I have never had a 'bad' meal. It's convenient to the Fabulous Fox Theater. Cafeteria style keeps prices low. The chicken is great as well, although most come for the steaks.

I started going here for lunch many years ago when I worked for the Woolworth Regional office. This was one of Friday lunch destinations. The atmosphere is unique - service is done at a counter where you order your food when asked "Next"!. Burgers are served on Texas Toast. You can order a burger or a steak dinner - either... More

Heard they had good food and that I should try it - so I did. Whoa nelly - I was immediately thrown into the mix with "next". I was 15 ppl behind grill - so I knew they were talking to me, but as locals and some theatre- goers looked my way, it was my turn. Not knowing what I... More

The food here is pretty good and reasonably priced. Though it is popular with all the locals it is a big draw for the theater crowd making the style of dress vary between the customers. As a first time customer I was intimidated at first and was glad to see a line so I could learn how the ordering system... More

We had concert tickets at the Fabulous Fox and wanted a quick dinner close by. Best Steak House fit the bill. Decent food at decent prices. Ordering is a little confusing so pay attention to who's NEXT.

This place sits right across the street from the incomparable Fox Theatre and has become a bit of an institution for its longevity. It's far from the "best" steakhouse in St. Louis, but it is a fun little place. You order in a cafeteria-style line, and if you pause for even a second, expect the cooks to skip you for... More

I've only ever had the milkshakes - but they are delicious! It's also right across from the Fox Theatre, so it's a great place to grab a bite to eat (or enjoy a milkshake) before or after a show.

Food was horrible! Service was horrible! Restaurant was filthy! We finally had a chance to go before a Fox show and we were very disappointed. The outside steak smell will fool you!
