RE: Pgh-Arkansas I70-I44
If you are in St. Louis at meal time, I would suggest Iron Barley (a little bit of a detour) or O'Connell's Pub (right on 44). If you are looking for any particular cuisine, let us know.
Quotes from previous posts:
"If you're headed through the city of Saint Louis ..., I would recommend lunch or dinner at Iron Barley. Traveling south, exit Bates St., turn right and right again at the light (Virginia Ave.). IB is half a block up on the right. They have chalkboards on the sidewalk, so they're somewhat easy to spot. Entrance back onto I-55 southbound in on Virginia, so you'll have to turn around. The neighborhood's a little downtrodden but don't let that stop you. All of the soups are excellent. In the kitchen, they have a list of soups and customer's phone numbers. Whenever a particular soup is on for the day, they call the people on their list! Sandwiches (peppered pork or strip steak, my favorite) and Entrees (schneitzel and spaetzel) are available. Local beer, Schlafly, also available. Very casual, very friendly. They are closed Sun."
"O'Connell's is on Kingshighway at I-44. Eastbound, exit Kingshighway and turn right. It's immediately there on your left at Shaw. Westbound, exit Vandeventer and turn left. Turn right onto Shaw and it'll be on your left as you get to Kingshighway."
