Bobby's Frozen Custard INC

Reviewed By 1101Traveler - Edgartown, Massachusetts

We live far from Bobby's but make a point of visiting when we're in the area. The clean-cut operation, enthusiastic staff and fun atmosphere are the perfect "toppings" to Bobby's delicious frozen custard. I chose a peach sundae and was pleased to enjoy the chunks of fresh, perfectly cut fruit. --Can't wait for our next visit to Bobby's!

Annie's Frozen Custard

Reviewed By 042143 - Glen Carbon, Illinois

Spouse was dying for a butter-finger concrete. She had hers made with chocolate custard and loved it. I had a butter pecan cone. Very good. We went to the one on Illini Dr in Glen Carbon and sat inside. Service was prompt and friendly and the place was spotless.

Wooden Nickle Pub and Grill

Reviewed By barbdrum - Saint Louis, Missouri

No blaring music - just the sound of laughter from a group on the patio. I agree with all of the wonderful reviews already posted. Located near the bike trail so we were there in the afternoon. Food was delicious, service prompt and friendly, area clean (patio). Look forward to returning.

Doc's Smokehouse

Doc and Susan Richardson started their journey on the Pro BBQ circuit. For several years they traveled the country competing and doing very well on the pro BBQ trail. Catering business started in 2009 and was a big hit with customers. Next step was a full service restaurant.

We tried Doc's Smokehouse for a to go order of pulled pork and it was very good. The sandwiches each included a side at a very reasonable price.

Fire-N-Smoke Wood Fired Kitchen

Reviewed By Ricardo59IL - Edwardsville, Illinois

We've been coming to Fire N Smoke since shortly after they opened and we've never had a bad meal. They follow the current trend in no-frills plating (brown paper on a metal tray) but they offer a great selection of BBQ in both sandwich and larger portions with lots of great sides to choose from. Occasionally you may encounter a line back to the front door. The actual ordering transaction seems to take longer than it should, but once your order is in, your food arrives pretty quickly. Their burnt ends, brisket and BBQ Turkey are my favorites. The baked beans are very good too.

Dewey's Pizza

Reviewed By Jack35933 - Edwardsville, Illinois

Adding an aditional venue to the St. Louis well know chain was a great addition to Edwardsville. This is a wonderful place for kids &/or grown ups to celebrate a birthday with excellent pizza, salads, and more. As with any pizza, eating in is always better than the carryout. A little extra is that one can purchase their pizza dough to make al kinds of wonderful dishes at home.
Probably best known for their pizza the salads are unmatched.

The cup is a great place to pickup a treat for yourself or anyone really. They have a wide range of flavor combinations and I have not found one I do not like. They also have delicious butter cookies that my son prefers.

The Cabin at Judy Creek

Rustic tavern, craft beers, craft cocktails, simple food..

Reviewed By RachelSt.Louis - Saint Louis, Missouri

We ate at The Cabin after going on the Mastermind Vodka tour because you get a free mastermind cocktail with the purchase of food. The menu was interesting, including a signature fried bologna sandwich. Historically, it's the first carriage stop from St Louis, which is pretty interesting. We also enjoyed the nostalgic glasses our waters were served in. Fun place if you're in the area!

There is streetside parking in the front of the building, and much more parking in the rear of the building. Front and rear entrances available.

Applebee's

Reviewed By tmf7150 - Highland, Illinois

We went to Applebees with 5 family members. Kiersten was our server and did a great job waiting on our table, recommending food and refilling drinks. We had a variety of food in fried mozarella sticks to start, dinner salad, 3 cheese chicken cavatapi, chicken strips with fries and the Butcher's meat and potatoes. All was good enough and priced inexpensively. The pasta dish had plenty left for a take home container. The men who ordered meat and potatoes at the whole thing and enjoyed it. The food is decent, but nothing stood out exactly.
