I am taking a road trip with a friend next month and we'll be driving through St. Louis around lunchtime on my birthday (a Monday). A big part of the road trip for me is eating awesome local foods. I'm planning to get beef on weck in Buffalo, deep dish in Chicago, Tex Mex in Albuquerque, buffet in Vegas, and chain restaurant food in Tulsa. ;)
I don't know anything about St. Louis food, though, so I'm not even sure what to ask for. Are there regional specialties? What would be the tastiest lunch I could get? I don't care about specific cuisine much at all, only about tastiness.
i know this is pretty vague, but I didn't have much luck getting any ideas by reading existing threads (though please feel free to link to some if I missed something helpful).
Thanks very much!
