We have lived in St. Louis just about four years. That being said, we are not fans of the St. Louis style pizza (cracker thin, messy, and with not taste). Originally from the Chicago suburbs, it is hard to find a pizza with a thick crust. Well, look no more! We had been told about Blackthorn when we moved to STL and just had not gotten around to getting there. Nestled in St. Louis' Lafayette neighborhood, Blackthorn is not much to look at from the outside, but when you enter, you find an eclectic pizza pub perfect for a casual Friday night. The place is always packed and you will wait awhile for your pizza. However, it is totally worth it! We loaded our pizza up with veggies and it was fantastic. The cheese dripped from the top and need the signature Chicago style move of scrapping the cheese from the slice off the side of the plate with a spatula. Yum, perfection! They also have many local STL beers that you can choose from to accompany your pizza! Now, you can select from various crust sizes, but I prefer the thick Chicago style--you will not be disappointed here! So give Blackthorn a try! You will love it!
