“Consistently legendary”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2014

We have been going to Lions Choice for thirty plus years. It is always great. The St Charles/Cave Springs location has improved in the last few years after it seemed to have been not as good as the other locations for a very long time!

“REAL Roast Beef”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

Love this "fast food" roast beef. It's the only one with Real Carved Roast Beef. Also, ham, turkey, great soups! They don't have Lion's Choice where I live and always stop in here when I'm in St. Peters!

“Best Roast Beef Sandwiches”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 20, 2013

Arby's roast beef does not even compare to Lion's Choice. It is shaved very thin and cooked medium rare so it is juicy. However, you can request well done if you prefer. The spices they season it with are very tasty. I get the large but get it on the wheat bun which I think is much better tasting. They currently have waffle cut sweet potato fries and they are delicious.

“Good sandwich”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2012

Having friends in MO that rave about Lion's Choice, I had to at least try one of their sandwiches on a recent visit to the area. The place is a typical fast food layout with a drive through window and interior service.

I stopped there in the middle of the afternoon, and ordered a large roast beef. The meat was cooked nicely, warm but still rare and was very tasty When it is sliced it is almost shaved, rather than having actual roast beef slices.

The service was good, of course I was one of only two customers in the location at the time. One thing I noticed was that the young lady making the sandwich spent quite a bit of effort trying to get the exact amount of beef on the scale, seemingly afraid that she would put 3 grams more on the sandwich than the specifications called for. This is a good sandwich, but you can't say that they are generous with the meat. The meat covered the bun, but was not stacked high.

The price was a bit high for what you get, but I will return again when I am in the area.

“Good Food, poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2012

Lions Choice food is good, but they have the most impersonal, seemingly bored employees that could care less, just want to get you in and out. No smiles, a forced "thanks"....wouldn't offer one of my business cards to them for a job!
