At Malone’s Grill & Pub, chefs fire-grill steaks and half-pound burgers, and they slow-char grill baby back ribs while basting the slabs in a house barbecue sauce. The comfort food that travels from kitchen to table matches the pub’s neighborhood vibes, as friends and families connect over meals and glasses of Malone’s own Irish brews. Daily specials reinforce the pub’s friendly aura, including on Tuesdays, when kids eat for free with each paid adult entrée.

Husband-and-wife team Koffy and Kike Osun bring the singular flavors of African cuisine from Nigeria, Ghana, and Jamaica to the St. Louis area. The kitchen's chefs craft dishes of jollof rice, fried plantains, fried tilapia, pounded yam, and fried chicken wings with a host of ingredients they import directly from Africa. When the sun drops in the Missouri sky, a DJ sets up shop inside the eatery, spinning afrobeat, kwaito, juju, and soukous beats as patrons show off their best square-dance moves.

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.

Cooks at Pirrone's Pizzeria's two locations craft pizzas from fresh dough, housemade sauce, and 17 different toppings. Inside the kitchens, cooks bake lasagnas and deep-fry golden onion rings to pair with sandwiches stuffed with meatballs, chicken parmesan, and italian salami. In the evening, diners can opt for a dinner portion of golden fried jumbo shrimp, skinless chicken breast, or italian sausage accompanied by salad, spaghetti, and all the napkins you can eat. Both locations have sizeable dining rooms, and the newer Saint Peters location fills its red-hued walls with flat-screen televisions showing sporting events for customers seated at the full bar.

So established is Circle K Midwest that even brand-new vehicles recognize what its red-and-white logo stands for—fuel, snacks, and everything else a car might need to keep powering down the road with its driver. Circle K's story starts back in 1951, when Fred Hervey bought three Kay's Food Stores in El Paso, Texas. Under his guidance, these three little shops grew into the more than 3,000 convenience stores that crouch on our nation's street corners today.

After rolling up to a Circle K, drivers can pump their faithful roadsters full of high-octane fuel and send them skipping through a car wash to experience the cleansing touch of Blue Coral Beyond Green and Rain-X products. Then it's time to step inside the air-conditioned shop for a peek at the provisions. Rows of sodas hibernate behind glass doors, and snacks, candy, and their ATM guardians stand boldly out in the open. Some Circle Ks also offer the Take Away Fresh Café, which presents an appetizing lineup of healthy road fare including sandwiches, fruit cups, and fresh-cut vegetables. Drivers can gear up for a long drive with premium coffees or enjoy a cold Polar Pop, whose specially formulated cup keeps drinks colder thanks to the family of tiny snowmen trapped in its foam walls.
