Best Comfort Food - 2007
Hwy 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen
The subject of the blues may be misery, but the result is often comfort. By sharing our pain with one another, we begin to heal. Some gooey, stick-to-your-ribs grub usually helps speed along the process. You'll find both the blues and the grub at Hwy 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen in Webster Groves, which celebrates the music and food of that fabled Blues Highway running from New Orleans to Memphis to St. Louis. So you can heal your broken heart with St. Louis-cut spare ribs in a peppery, tangy barbecue sauce or, for a Memphis-style treat, spaghetti and pulled pork topped with that same sauce. Louisianan dishes are fantastic, especially the shrimp-and-crawfish étouffée and fried tamales. Portions are huge, so even if your woman done left you, you'll have enough to share if she done change her mind and come back.
