    Big Elwood (tenderloin and peppers) is awesome. Burgers and shrimp excellent too. Chicken is half salt and inedible. Only one craft beer on draft which is sad. Fun place.

    This place is an STL Area institution! The outdoor patio is the best spot. It's fun to see college students, bikers, older adults, and everyone else mix at a bar like this one.

    You can literally eat until you pop! Shrimp and the chicken on a stick is the way to go. Remember it is cash only, pay as you go.

    I've ate here on multiple occasions. Bring cash they don't accept cards. 21 & over only. Service is always GREAT. I suggest the $1.99 Fat Eddie Burger or the $0.39 peel & eat shrimp.

    BRING CASH! This place is an experience. It's usually packed, but they have service down to a science. Get (really cheap) food inside then go outside for live music.

    How can you go wrong with 39-cent shrimp, $1.99 half-pound burgers, free popcorn and more? Just don't expect to bring the kiddies. (Over 21 only.)

    If you like the beer and being cramped this is the hangout. Add the burgers and the peel & eat shrimp and the live music on weekends, you've got a happening joint for all ages - over 21.

    Go to Fast Eddie's for good, super cheap eats! Tell your vegetarian friends to eat before they come, though, and make sure you get the Long Island Iced Tea instead of the Frosty Mudslide.
