Reviewed May 9, 2014

stopped in here for a quick lunch while on a trip in St. Louis, and the food and malts made it worth our while. what a gem - limited menu, but large portions and quality service.

“GO!!!”
Reviewed April 27, 2014 via mobile

Is there a wait? Yes. Is it worth it? YES. Not a big establishment and it's very popular. Went on a Sunday about a half hour after it opened and waited about 20-30 minutes for a seat. You line up at the door to wait so if the weather is bad you're in it. The booths are old and seat only 2-4 people, so of you're party is bigger you have to split up and there is no guarantee you will sit down at the same time. An alternative on nice days is to sit at the nice patio across the street with picnic tables and get your food to go. The food is good, very good. The bacon on the BLT is extreme (in a good way if you ask me). You get about a pound. My wife had the chili tamale and my daughter the roast beef sandwich. They were very happy as well. The malts are thick and taste great. It's was well worth the trip.

“BLT is big, lasting, and tall”
Reviewed April 13, 2014

The pictures are very accurate, and looks like the size of the meals guarantees a full stomach and a take away box. Quality of food was good and brought back the classic ice cream soda feeling. Prices reasonable

“Awesome BLT.”
Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

Visited while on Spring Break. No crowd. No line. Must have been our lucky day. The BLT and Reuben were both great. So much bacon, it was falling off the sandwich. Chocolate malt and sundae were great also. This place also has a malt challenge.. if you can drink 5 in 30 mins, they are free and you earn a place on the plaque on the wall.
