  1. I live around St.Louis and I walk outside when I hear a tornado warning lmao watched my grill get blown across my patio and just continued watching Netflix😂😂

  2. I’m a Missourian born and bred and I LOVE all those things! Glad you got to try foods traditional to our state. The ravs and Imos are the bomb!

  3. They missed a few other good food places like Gramophone, Cunetto House of Pasta, Sugarfire, etc. Ted Drews is a must for sure though.

  4. Besides a few bbq places st louis is one of the worst cities to travel to for great food experiences. Lived here my entire life. It sucks trust me.

  5. Y'all hit the real touristy spots if that's even a word. I'm thinking about some C&K BBQ, Ropers Ribs, O. T Hodge's Chili, Porter's Chicken, damn near any Chinese. White Castles. It's some other spots and the weather just wait 😆.

  6. Feels a little one sided, y'all only chose white owned operations, it would been nice to see y all embracing various cultures ,example sweetie pie's was featured by Oprah, black owned and operated..

  7. I'm sorry if this is rude but they were absolutely adorable during the tornado alert. So cute! I hope they weren't really all that scared, storms pop up and blow through pretty quickly here in the Midwest.

  8. St. Louis is one of the best kept secrets of the Midwest. It doesn't get the shine or recognition that other big cities get (actually a good thing) but it has just as much character and excitement- and it's MUCH cheaper to live and play there (most attractions are free or extremely affordable)! I hope it stays that way. GO ST. LOUIS!

  9. glad you had fun in our city….if you come again, know that that the St. Louis style BBQ that gained fame has been hijacked by what tourist (looking for what they heard about) actually get. If you want to try what ACTUALLY gained the fame, go to a black neighborhood and a black BBQ spot. All of the items you tried at Pappy's will be different PLUS there is a item that can be found in very few places other than St. Louis, and even in St. Louis, very, very few white BBQ places have. Its a Pork Steak. P.S. The ribs you gals had at Pappy's were baby back ribs, not St. Louis cut ribs (different part of the rib)

  10. 😥. You didn't try a Pork Steak!
    The Pork Steak is Only know in the Midwest… Every Grocery Store has them but no restaurant servers them.

  11. I live in St. Louis Missouri & it always makes me happy to see people who arent from here come here to try our food. I've lived here my whole life, & I love our food here.

  12. I remember growing up having the realization that not everyone has gooeybutter cake and toasted ravs. I was so sad! I could eat toasted ravs every day and be happy. Next time get some fried rice! its so good here and i havent been able to find anything like it in other parts of the country.

  13. i grew up in st louis, MISS ALL THAT FOOD, and always remember if you go back, if you see weather that turns bad, just wait 20 minutes, the sun will be out after the storm..lol

  14. Tornado sirens go off
    People from La- WE ARE GOING TO DIE
    stl people- ohh kids get your lawn chairs look at the cool cloud!!

  15. Soo I’m from STL and live in STL and what I have to say is you all should have went to O Charlie’s there bread is TO DIE FOR

  16. Gerber sandwich is not a St. Louis thing…it may be a Ruma's deli thing…but…it's like saying an Amighetti's Special is a St. Louis thing…well it is…but it's really
    an Amighetti thing.

  17. I dunno, St. Louis born and raised, me and a lot of people I knew hated Imo's, it's kind of 50-50 even among St.Louis natives.

  18. I have had "St. Louis style" ribs in the highlands of Guatemala, & T-Ravs in a bar across from "A" stadium in Tempe, AZ. Nothing beats having St. Louis foods in St. Louis.

  19. I live in the Lou so I’m watching this for places I never heard of or been toooo before . Nice , ladies I hope ur visit was great and u guys where safe while here !!!!

  20. y’all really missed the mark on this by not calling this “Show me! St. Louis, Missouri “ instead of bring me… because we are called “ the Show Me State “ 😂😂😭

  21. also we are now a Stanley Cup champion city thanks to our St. Louis Blues!!! Love our boys so much and happy for any good publicity for stl as it really is a good city 💙

  22. ohh you know you always eat the whole thing…anyway i didnt see any pricing, just a suggestion for next time. people would like to know what ur paying.

  23. The Imos cheese is called provel…used to be spelled pro-vel, because its actually half and half Velvetta and Provolone. That's why it doesn't "string" and there's controversy around it because Velvetta isn't cheese. That aside, Provel is delicious!!! The Imos owner won't tell you that though…lol…you ladies should have tried a "St. Paul" sandwich at a Chinese takeout!! They are only in St. Louis and wonderful!!! Kind of like a crispy omlet on a sandwich. Your reactions to the tornado warning were hilarious!!!!

  24. I'm good friends with the owner of Pappys. Such a great guy! They have 5 or 6 locations now but they're all called something different.

  25. Lifelong St. Louisian here. Literally three of the five spots are within 15 minutes of my place on the south side. So cool to see my town get some respect. Just a tip though Federhoffers Bakery is the best gooey butter cake you’ll ever have. Oh and you have to fold those delicious party squares of Imo’s if you’re gonna do it right. SoCoMo is the place to be!

  26. You missed a couple big ones. Giola's Hot Salami Sandwich is absolutely a big one. Missouri Baking Company's Chocolate Drops. The St. Paul Sandwich (Rice House) is a Saint Louis original as well. A slinger from Tiffany's Diner, and hit up O'Connells for a salad with their house Mayfair and then a hot Roast Beef sandwich (and a Guinness.)

  27. The crunchy bits of gooey butter cake are all i need in life. Schnucks’ pumpkin gooey butter cake is a blessing from heaven

  28. In St. Louis, when you need to know if a tornado is near – look for a large grey thing in the sky sucking up stuff… otherwise ignore the siren. No visit is complete with out a "slinger" for breakfast at Courtesy Diner.

  29. You went to the right place for toasted ravioli!! And Imo's pizza is AWESOME, but only if it's hot. I always get double bacon, that's it, just bacon & more bacon & I can eat a large by myself!
