Some of the best sandwich game in town. Owner Vinnie Valenza has done a fine job of making this eatery a St. Louis staple. Fancy, step aside, this is a finger lickin’ type of place where you won’t think twice about getting a little messy.
A true deli, you’ll order and wait until your number is called. The menu, as they say, is a “tip of the hat” to blues music and culture, and the decor doesn’t stray too far.
A line out the door, but it’s well worth the wait. Get the off-the-menu “Beefy Jo-Jo.”
The toughest part of this place is deciding what to order. With a solid menu featuring po-boys, muffulettas, New York-Style sandwiches, Italian favorites, and even vegetarian options, you’ll just have to keep coming back to sample it all. Come with a group—it’ll make the line less daunting.
