“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013 via mobile

Had the beef brisket sandwich and was very disappointed . It was basically very dry roast beef. My wife had the French dip and was likewise disappointed . Lots of fat and no substance. I guess we should have had the corned beef but I would say maybe next time but there won't be one

“Surprisingly good sports bar food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We came here to meet some friends. The main part of the restaurant was noisy, but we got to sit in a side room which was very reasonable. The food was really good! My daughter and I had barbeque brisket, which was tasty. My son and husband had baby back ribs, which were also really good. The salads were fresh and tasty. The rest of our family and friends had burgers, which all looked really good. They had a good selection of craft beers, too. Some clever cocktails as well.
And if you want to watch a game, there were screens everywhere. The place was surprisingly packed on a Thursday night (during the NCAA tournament, so maybe not surprisingly).

“Just a Deli”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

Okay food, nothing really special. Deli style sandwiches, my favorite is the Reuben sandwich. I have tried the CWE location, but not the other ones in the city. It is worth a try.

“Lester's LADUE MO”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2013

Great venue to meet friends for watching a ball game. Corned Beef and Patrami are the specialties. Try the matzo ball soup, salads and slider combinations, if you want to eat light.
Open 7 days a week.
