Lunch: Blues City Deli – 2438 McNair Ave., Saint Louis, MO 63104
Known for their po’ boys and muffulettas, Blues City Deli will have a sandwich or hot dog that will fill you up. This is not your typical deli as there is live blues or jazz music on certain days, a huge variety of chips and unique sodas to accompany your meal.
Dinner: The Shaved Duck – 2900 Virginia Ave., St Louis, MO 63118
You can’t go to the Lou’ and not have any St. Louis-style barbecue. Although the Shaved Duck does have St. Louis style ribs, the menu has a lot of other items that will leave you more than satisfied.
