My family is meeting up with my wife's family in St. Louis for a quick weekend reunion. I have never been there. I am looking for recommendations for a place that is sort of a can't miss institution in the city. I am thinking along the lines of pizza, bbq or deli but am open to other ideas if they are quintessentially St. Louis.
We will be a fairly large group and there will be lots of kids. We are staying 15 miles south of downtown but I am willing to drive to get a taste of the city.
Thanks for any suggestions.
