Humans cannot be expected to perform well at karaoke or during open-mic nights if they don’t receive the proper fuel. Therefore, Dylan’s Sports Bar and Grill's kitchen churns out a menu of hearty pub classics, and the bar offers potent brews to subdue excess nerves. On select Monday nights, guests can prepare for a competitive game of darts by carbo-loading with pasta alfredo or greasing elbows with a french dip’s au jus. Friday and Saturday nights call locals to the mic to demonstrate their singing skills—which generally seem to increase whenever audience members tuck toasted ravioli in their ears. Dylan's also features a few things you might not find at other eateries—a liberal smoking policy, for example. Thanks to a cutting-edge ventilation system, diners can smoke at their tables while keeping the air fresh for nonsmokers nearby. And even after reveling late into the night, they open bright and early at 6 a.m. to serve breakfasts of omelets, biscuits and gravy, and a "hangover cure"—a mound of crispy hash browns piled with eggs, sausage, and chili.

Flowing steadily from a fountain, or la fuente in Spanish, water represents luck, promises, hopes, and dreams. For the past decade or so, Las Fuentes restaurant has certainly fulfilled the virtue of its name, as the family-owned eatery has expanded to three locations across St. Louis. At each spot, chefs prepare authentic Mexican feasts fit for meat eaters, seafood lovers, and vegetarians alike. Soft corn and flour tortillas envelop succulent meats, such as al pastor, shrimp, and shredded beef. Cast-iron skillets sizzle with fresh fajita vegetables and a bounty of seafood, including scallops and tilapia. Vegetarians, meanwhile, can enjoy tostadas, chalupas, and quesadillas chock-full of beans and cheese. As patrons chow down, they can also enjoy the day?s event, such as karaoke or a live mariachi band, or order from the new bar at the Arnold location.

Finger-friendly foods abound here: from Side Pocket Potato Skins (dolled up with bacon bits, cheddar cheese, and sour cream, $6.99) to fried cheese sticks ($6.99), the extensive list of grabbable grub stretches on longer than a sloth-baseball double-header. For heartier bites, the Hall of Fame Burgers ($7.99) are all made from a half pound of Kobe beef and served on a Kaiser roll with lettuce, pickle, and fries. A small selection of salads and sides appeases those in search of a lighter bite. O'Aces features weekly drink specials as well as pool tables, dart boards, foosball, arcade games, and a sports-themed mural dedicated to St. Louis sports. Enjoy live music every Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday, or showcase your own vocal dexterity on Karaoke Thursdays.

One foot across, and two-and-a-half feet tall. That?s an estimate of the dimensions of the mammoth Levee High Apple Pie. The pie?made with no fewer than 18 hand-sliced and hand-placed golden delicious apples?is something of a local celebrity: it was named one of Oprah?s ?Favorite Things?, featured on the Today Show, profiled on the Food Network?s Paula?s Party, and honored with the Nobel Pie Prize. Tipping the scales at 10 pounds, the apple pie feeds eight and has become so popular, its creator, The Blue Owl Restaurant and Bakery, now ships frozen versions around the country to make stunning appearances at home tables year-round.

But anvil-sized desserts aren?t the only reason locals flock to The Blue Owl. A whole menu of casual comfort foods beckons with options such as biscuits and gravy, hot roast beef sandwiches, fried chicken, and fresh tossed strawberry salad. Yet homemade fruit pies, cream pies, cheesecakes, and wedding cakes are still the restaurant's biggest claim to fame, and have been since 1985. That's the year that local baker Mary Hostetter (whose homemade baked goods had taken area fairs and festivals by storm), blended her home-based business with that of the legendary Blue Owl Restaurant. And the rest, as they say, is history.

When founders J. Kim Tucci, Joseph A. Fresta, and John P. Ferrara first opened The Pasta House Co. in 1974, they wanted to elevate pasta to an art form. ?Some artists sculpt, some paint, and some sketch,? they write on the restaurant?s website. ?But, at The Pasta House Co., we create authentic Italian culinary delights.? A few of the locations even have giant, exhibition kitchens so you can watch as pizzas, pastas, and entrees come to life.

Naturally, The Pasta House Co.?s menu revolves around the Italian staple from which it gets its name. There are more than 25 varieties of pasta to choose from, including linguine with chicken livers and the signature lasagna, plus weekday specials such as stuffed manicotti. Meanwhile, the mangia bene menu?which translates to ?eat well? in Italian?showcases the more wholesome side of Italian eating, with dishes low in fat and calories that won?t peer pressure you to break curfew.

Even if pizza isn't your thing—which is unthinkable—the menu at St. Louis Pizza & Wings has something tasty and satisfying to please palates. The kitchen staff prepares 14 signature sandwiches, including an open-faced ham and cheese on garlic bread, and seven traditional pasta dishes for in-house dining or takeout. Double-decker burgers and boneless wings sate cravings for classic pub cuisine, and nine specialty pizzas come with hand-tossed thick crusts or St. Louis–style thin crusts.
