Yes, St Louis ribs is a very specific officially recognized cut.
St Louis Style barbecue though includes using that spare rib cut, but also direct heat grilling and heavy tomato-based saucing after grilling.

Anymore, "St Louis STYLE" BBQ is hard to distinguish from Memphis Style. Pappy's and Bogart's definitely gravitate towards a Memphis Style. Sugarfire on the other hand, is definitely more KC Style.

STL cut spareribs are ribs that have the cartilage and some of the flap meat removed. The result is a nice, rectangular cut of spareribs.

Philadelphia has cheesesteaks at Pat's or Geno's
Pittsburgh has sandwiches at Primanti Brothers
Atlanta has hot dogs at The Varsity

Many cities have their quintessential must-eat experience. Does St. Louis have one?

I'd say Italian food on "The Hill" and Ted Drewe's Frozen Custard.

Yes, I'd go with the Hill (any place but Rigazzi's) and Ted Drewe's as must eats. I also think you must eat Gooey Butter cake, but not frequently. It's heavenly and oh so unhealthy.

I also think getting barbeque from Sugarfire or Salt and Smoke is a great idea.

Whichever place on the hill claims they invented toasted ravs. I think it's Anthonino's? Could be wrong.

BLT and a malt at Crown Candy.

Maybe not as famous, but a burger at O'Connells Pub.

I moved away a few years ago and can't get a "pork steak" anywhere....that part of the pig must not grow out here in the west. I miss StL food and need a care package with pork steaks, ribs, toasted ravioli, provel cheese, Gooey Butter Cake, and a StL pizza. A concrete wouldn't survive the trip. Maybe a hot dog from Busch Stadium? I'll pass on the brain sandwich...if you can still get one (never saw one anywhere else). Don't send beer...I have that.


I got so desperate that I tried to make Gooey Butter Cake but at almost 6,000 feet it was a crusty pudding. Tasted great.

Just an FYI, pork steaks are just sliced pork butts from the shoulder (bone-in or boneless). You can ask your butcher to cut a whole pork butt roast for you...voila--pork steaks.
