We're getting ready for both a STL and a KC visit - I know about some of the local/regional specialties of St Louis, (crispy snoots, fried ravioli, egg fu young sandwiches, provel cheese, gooey butter cake) but what about CanCity, as our resident friends pronounce it? Has CowTown evolved its own unique culinary delights? The only one I know about is NuWays, but I believe that is regional and is sometimes called MaidRite. Right? Please advise.
We are thinking about OK Joe's and Jack's Stack for bbq and Bichelmeyer's in Tonganoxie for steak but we'll be staying for more than 3 days and would love some more suggestions. FYI: we are not into white tableclothes, tuxedoed waiters and so forth. Deliciousness holds more interest that ambience.
We don't want to waste time or calories on food that isn't good/fresh/unique and I've learned the hard way to only rely on recs - which if why I turn to Chowhound! Thanks so much and I will post a reply when we get home.
