“Great dive bar with Chicago style pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2012 via mobile

Like I said, this is a dive bar. A dive bar with great Chicago style pizza a great atmosphere and plenty of games. Our pizza took about 40 minutes but it was fantastic! No negatives to report. Decent beer prices and good garlic bread. The sauce for garlic bread and pizza were different but had a nice kick to them.

“Best non-thin crust pizza in St. Louis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

This place is awesome. Shuffleboard, cheap PBR and a good tap selection for more refined beers. Oh, and the pizza is outstanding. It takes a while since they only cook up to two pizzas at a time, but the wait is worth it. Looks like a dirty dive bar, but it's a great experience.

“Nothing like it in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2012 via mobile

For a truly great pie, look no further than this classic South City dive. Give them an hour to make it, then enjoy some Chicago-style pizza in the heart of STL.

“Popular with area locals as well as tourists.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

The Black Thorn is an iconic and comfortable place to enjoy St. Louis "Pub food"!

The sandwiches were very good and the pizza was also pleasant. This is a kind of place to go with a group after a sporting event, if you played or if you watched.

“Great Pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

Neighborhod pub known for it's great pizza. The deep dish is outstanding. Usually a wait especially on weekends but well worth it. Acceptable selection of beers to enjoy with dinner or while waiting.
