Best roast beef sandwich ever!

This chain has the best roast beef in town! I wish they had locations in other states on a national level. Their sandwich and fries combination can not be beat! When ever we are in St Louis we always make an effort to eat lunch here several times during our time here. The service is always fast and... read more

We love the healthy veggie stick alternative to fries and the mini ice-cream cone. Sandwiches are also a great alternative to fried food. Drive-thru with no fried foods....welcome

I liked it but it was pricey. Good food though a must try at least once.the staff was friendly and very helpful, our kids were a bit picky. They did like the food and thought the portions were small

We went to Six Flags and Lion's Choice was a good meal. Not junk food...somewhat healthy. The food was fresh and filling.

This is not processed meat like other national roast beef chains. try the sandwich with a dollop of horseradish sauce and a slice of swiss cheese.

Would I go back? Yes. This is a good spot for a not so bad for you fast food meal. The roast beef is tender and flavorful and the sandwich is comparatively low calorie for fast food. The service was quick and the food good. Not much else to say about a fast food joint.

Yes, this is a fast food restaurant but it has a lot to offer. Although Lion"s Choice is known for their medium rare roast beef sandwiches with their special seasonings this particular restaurant has a definite advantage. Management has it all together providing quick service, friendly faces, clean dining and a self serve condiment bar. You are able to choose... More

Husband and I always have wanted to try a Lion's Choice, so we finally gave it a whirl...Glad we did, as we will be back. Service was friendly and quick. Food was served hot and was tasty. Loved that the kids meals came with 2 sides and there was healthy options to choose from. We thought their roast beef was... More
