Going to St. Louis for 2+ days - specifically, for two breakfasts, three lunches, and plenty of time for mid-afternoon or late-night snacks (ice cream, coffee, pastries, whatever). Other than Ted Drewes, I have nothing on my to-eat list. No interest in fancypants restaurants - I have plenty of that here in Boston. I'm staying downtown, will have a car but would prefer to stay in town as much as possible (since I do have to work while I'm there). I have no freedom on dinner, so places like Harvest are off limits.
Also, I have seen some older posts here bemoaning the lack of Q in St. Louis, except for one recommendation for Ropers on W Florissant. If any of that has changed, I'd love to hear about it, as there isn't a single barbecue place anywhere within 45 minutes of Boston that's worth a damn.
Thanks in advance for any recs.
