    Best ribs in St. Louis!

    We can't recommend the smothered fries highly enough. How can rib meat over crispy, hand-cut fries, topped with cheese sauce possibly disappoint? Read more

    One of my favorite places in the city. I recommend the Big Jimmy Sampler for a first time there (it's enough food for two). Don't miss out on the smothered fries or the mac 'n cheese.

    Fries Taste Test: The porky meat on Shaved Duck's smothered fries is excellent — but the flavor of the actual fries got lost in all the other stuff. Also: They coulda and shoulda been a lot hotter. Read more

    The food never disappoints here. I eat till I am in pain almost every time. Beer and wine list is impressive and reasonably priced. Holly is the best server/bartender I have ever had.

    Jalepeno cream corn is the best side there. Always go for the duck plate.

    Smothered fries and burnt ends are the way to go. Beer is a little overpriced but food is amazing.

    You must try the pulled rib meat layered over hand-cut fries that just so happen to be smothered in cheese sauce made in-house.

    Riverfront Times · September 17, 2013

    Get the covered fries and the meat sampler.

    chris · August 15, 2013

    Order the sampler if its your first time. Oh, and show up early! Very crowded even on week nights.

    No duck at lunch, but meatloaf sandwich was tasty. Brisket doesn't have much flavor before you add sauce (which is good), but it's nice & juicy, not all dried out like smoe places.

    Bridget Cabibi-Wilkin · June 19, 2013
  • Elena L.

    Patate affumicate (con carne di spalla e costata affumicata, mescolata in salsa al formaggio), petto d'anatra affumicato con confettura al ginepro . . .
