Ah! This posting makes me so homesick. Thanks for the ono-looking photos and the terrific descriptions. I love your site!


Hi Dori,

Welcome to the site. I'm glad you enjoy it. I'm hoping it makes all of you in the states think about moving back here. I know I would...just for the food! =) Hope to hear from you again!


i used to go there w/ my friends afterschool to check out the st. louis boys...but i won't get into that right now ;)

i really love their sweet potato!! yum

your site always makes me want to drive out into town and find all these hole-in-the-walls i used to frequent in high school!!


Hi Gracie,

Nice to see you again. Are you a Sacred Hearts girl? =)

The sweet potato is very nice isn't it?

I like the hole-in-the-wall places too. You never know what you're going to find and where. I'm still glad that many of them are still around!



Back in the 60's we called St. Louis Drive In "Mama-san's". I used to go there after school before walking home all the way up to 12th Avenue and buying a small dish of gobo for 15 cents. If I had more money. I'd stop off at W&M's and order a bag of fries for 11 cents and load it up with ketchup. Thanks for the nostalgic memories of Saint Louis and also revisiting my old Chaminade days.


Had problems with my proxy server. Sorry for the multiple postings.


Hi Clinton,

Wow! That's so cheap.


How's their roast pork plate? Still ono? That's my dad's and my favorite.



I'm not so sure. I haven't had roast pork in ages. Maybe I need to go check it out.

    Canon EOS 5D

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

  • Dscu40r
    Sony Cyber-shot® DSC-U40

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
