      And, "st louis style pizza". Calling it "pizza on a cracker" would be very accurate. But the cheese SUCKS.

    You sir blaspheme and therefore lose the game of life!

    Toasted ravioli is the most delicious thing ever made. If you argue this point then you also probably hate joy and therefore your opinion does not matter.

    I am a HUGE fan of St. Louis style pizza, though I will admit it is not too popular with people not from St. Louis and people who are anti-minority rights (like StaggerLee I am assuming).

    Finally a Slider is specifically eggs and a breakfast meat (usually bacon or sausage) covered in chili and it is awesome. People that hate it also probably hate children's laughter.

    St. Louis is also known for Gooey Butter Cake. If you do not like Gooey Butter Cake then please accept deportation back to whatever land your ancestor's were chased out of (I'm just assuming they had to come here to escape the justice they faced for burning down orphanages).


I know a guy from St. Louis and he once made me some kind of sandwich he called a Gerber. I mostly remember ham, really gooey cheese, and garlic. Lots of garlic. It was delicious, but could have used some peppers and onions.

The Gerber uses the same cheese that the heretic StaggerLee hated which would be provolone (or sometimes provel). And yes it is delicious. Usually its just the bread, ham, and cheese and garlic with no peppers.

A bushel of crabs, cold beer.

Other than that, most anything with crab meat in it. Not as rampant as in Maryland, which is more softshell, but the other side of the Chesapeake has a rather nice bounty of crab meat.

Can't think of anything here in historic Parts Unknown (unless I just say "PORK PORK PORK ANYTHING PORK"), so since nobody else has, I'll throw in Cincinnati's Chili 3-Way.

It's Cincinnati chili (an all-meat concoction that has a distinct cinnamon taste...VERY different and takes some getting used to) topping spaghetti noodles. The chili is topped with a heaping pile of cheddar.

There's two large chains in the tri-state area that specialize in the stuff...Skyline Chili and Gold Star Chili, each who have over 100 locations. The originator of all this is said to be Empress Chili, which still operates a few locations too.

Those familiar with Steak n' Shake's Chili 3-way...that's a whole different animal.

    You a Portillo's or Al's man? I also like the Breaded Italian at Rocobeni's.

I prefer Portillo's. Though I've never been to Al's on Taylor so I'll have to wait.

Ricobene's is the greatest thing on earth. I could live in there.

Badmouthing Primantis? You can get your ass back to New York, you hear?

But yes, mammoth sandwiches with french fries and coleslaw. Don't knock it until you've tried it - it will change your life. And shorten it a bit.

We've also got a large Slovak population which has led to a strange piece of cultural pride dedicated to the pierogie as well. Which I also can't complain about.

Said brats are properly done by being par-boiled the night before in dark beer and onions. Then prepared over a grill, preferably in the Lambeau Field or Miller Park parking lot.

Toasted Ravioli is the best appetizer ever. How can someone not like this?

Also, I'm not "from" St. Louis, but I lived there for a few years and must say St. Louis style pizza is one of my favorite BECAUSE of the cheese. Really great flavor you can't find anywhere else. But then again I think Deep Dish pizza sucks ass so I'm a little strange. I'm not buying pizza for the stinking bread so as little of that as possible please.

As for Austin, I dunno. I mean Texas has it's style of chili and a ton of German towns that make great sausage. But the breakfast tacos are what really stick out to me as something I've never seen much of before and certainly not to this level.

First of all, I agree, fried ravioli is pretty much awesome.

As for St Louis pizza - I was born there - there is a pizza place in St Louis called Ponacellos (probably spelled wrong) that is the stuff of legend in my family.

Not FROM St Louis, so that's why I think "St Louis style pizza" sucks ass.

Also, for the St Louis area, I forgot Pork Steaks.

    The two most famous places to get coney dogs (Lafayette Coney Island & American Coney Island) are open right next door to each other and they both have their share of fiercely loyal customers (i.e. they NEVER eat at the other place upon penalty of death).


Don't forget the slider! Burgers and dogs. And the slider has just as much history, and just as many die-hard fans defending their slider joint of choice. You've got Telway, Hunter House, the fast-food version in White Castle, and any number of other places scattered around.

Wasn't trying to badmouth Primanties, I'll stop there whenever I am near one and looking for lunch. But for a populance know for weight issues, having fries a regular part of you salads just stikes me as funny.

And yes, I neglected the Pierogie, which until I came here my experiance had been limited to the store bought frozen kind. The couple of times I have had them here, they have been excellent.

Lefse is a Norwegian dish, so that sounds more like a Minnesota thing. I'm sure there are pockets of Norwegians in Wisconsin and the Upper Peninsula of Michigan as well, but I'd never heard of it before you mentioned it.

I was living near LaCrosse at the time, so that makes sense.
