Iconic foods in an iconic city.

St. Louis is home to some of the most famous landmarks in America, from the Gateway Arch to the sculptures in Citygarden. There are also some pretty amazing places to eat in the city, including the area around "The Hill" — an old Italian neighborhood that is famous for its restaurants and the home of Yogi Berra and Joe Garagiola.

Beyond the famous "Hill," St. Louis is home to some other popular dishes.

Mama’s on the Hill is said to be the birthplace of toasted ravioli, a dish that came to exist purely by accident when the new chef at Oldani’s dropped the ravioli’s into a pot of boiling oil that he thought was water. Pappy’s Smokehouse offers some of the best barbecue in the city, and you can satisfy your sweet tooth at Crown Candy Kitchen.

If you follow this guide, you’ll have the chance to taste some of the best foods in St. Louis, from savory to sweet, and your taste buds will thank you. And of course, you’ll be able to satisfy your thirst with a classic beer: the Budweiser.
