“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.

“Missing Chi-Town Pie...Got It!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Like the Deep Dish Chicago Style. You can take a piece of pie and use it to break a car window...never did that by the way!!

Takes a little long to get your pie...about one hour. Worth it in the end. Small local "hole in the wall" bar, so dress to player shuffle board.

“Best (non-typical STL) Pizza in town!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 9, 2012

Well first this isn't your typcial STL pizza and that's just fine with me cause I'm from back east and our pizza has a thick crust. Black Thorn custom makes each pizza and each one has tons of toppings, trust me 1 piece is about all you can eat. Be prepared to wait a long time for your pizza so call your order in ahead of time of sip a few beers from their great selection while playing a few arcade games. It's a "bar" type atmosphere and can get a bit noisy at times but hey, you gotta do what you gotta due to eat some great non typical STL pizza!!! Excellent!
