Hi everyone! I enjoy all of your posts as always and have used many on multiple occasions. I am a transplanted St. Louisan who now lives in NYC. I recall there used to be a restaurant, very homey-looking type of restaurant, called the Blue Springs Cafe right on 40/64 (I think?) just outside of STL in Illinois. My family and I have never eaten there but have been intrigued by their signs for "mile high pie" and (on a quick glance inside) the plates of fried chicken, potatoes, and all of the other delicious looking comfort foods I saw being passed around.
I'm going to be back in STL in about two weeks and would love to try it. Has anyone been there? Could you tell me a little about it? Is it worth the drive? Do their pies live up to the advertising? I'd really appreciate it as I'm in the mood for a meal like this. Thanks very much...Emily
