Pickles is amazing!!!! I have been going for about a year and every sandwich I have tried has been the best I have ever had. The roast beef is melt in your mouth. They cut everything fresh to order, and the staff is very friendly. Even though I am a native to St. Louis and very partieal to the historic places, I would even recommend Pickles over any of the local sandwich shops. Big fan and will continue going back over and over again!!
Best Roast Beef Sandwich - 2008
Catering as it does to the metro area's most cosmopolitan population, the Central West End has always been a decent place to sample global cuisine. But the lowly American deli sandwich? Not so much. Which is why it came as such welcome news last year that meat lovers Tim Metz and Sean Olson had decided to debut Pickles Deli, and even better news that they sampled no fewer than fifteen different cold-cut roast beefs before deciding on the medium-rare version that's become a mainstay of their menu. Sliced extra-thick and piled higher than you'd ever dare try at home, the pink hunks o' meat come assembled-to-order with the bread and toppings of your choice. Feeling conventionally American? Stick to rye with mayo. Feeling worldly? Try the warm, sweet pretzel roll. And don't forget to thank Metz and Olson for putting roast beef back on the CWE map.
