After having read a number of favorable reviews (of which I believe are very suspect) on-line, my lady friend and I elected to visit this restaurant yesterday. What a horrible experience! The placed had a foul order about it, it was dirty, every employee I engaged with had a bad attitude and clearly didn't want to work. They were rude,... More

Fast, abrupt no-frills service, but the food is good. Great place to go before the theater or symphony.

Most dirty steak house. Actually the food was decent but everything from the front door handle to the tables were dirty. Sorry but I can't return to this one.

I had always wanted to try this place, it is just across from the Fox theater, so it is a great location for dining before the theater. The food was just average. It is cafeteria style, you stand in line and the cooks yell "NEXT" and you place your order. Our steak and pork chop were very thin, similar in... More

Folks this is a steakhouse on a budget. Don't expect great accommodations or table service just good ole food. It is just down the street from St Louis University and they grill em up by the dozens as you order. The steaks are a good cut, perhaps not the finest but the price is right and they know how to...

My lady ordered for the both of us while I parked. She ordered steak and shrimp. We usually order our steaks medium. The steaks were so damn thin I couldn't believe it. They were also over cooked and had so much grisle throughout meat I didn't even bother finishing it. Will never go back again. What happened to that place?... More

?Road trip in St Louis area-felt like steak, but not a wallet buster and a 2 hour meal. We had read a review about the Best Steak House so we were prepared to shout out our order while standing in line. Although about 8th in line back from the counter the grill cook looked right at us and shouted out... More

I went to this restaurant knowing that it is good food for a good price. Overall, I have to agree! Do you stand in line and wait for your food to cook like you're in a cafeteria? Yes. Is the seating area a little old and outdated? Yes. Can the line be a little chaotic? Yes, but I think that... More

PROS: 1.Right across the street from the Fabulous Fox Theater. 2.Very reasonably priced. 3.Great selection of food. 4. Fantastic meal. CONS: You have to yell your order to the cook from the cafeteria-style line. This can get a bit confusing/overwhelming when the place is packed. BOTTOM LINE: I would highly-recommend this restaurant for anyone wanting fabulous food at a cheap... More

My daughter thought it was very cool that you yell out your order to the cooks, and the steaks were wonderful. I loved the fact that they have fried okra on the menu. The desserts even received the wifes approval, and that's not easy!
