One could, in theory, head to Sweetie Pie's location in the Grove neighborhood any day just for the sides: cabbage flavored with smoky bacon, tangy mac & cheese, thick yams, black-eyed peas and generous hunks of cornbread. But you might find a specific day especially mouthwatering, for at this most holy chapel of cafeteria-style soul food, the main courses rotate weekly. Grand matron Robbie Montgomery (a former backup singer for Ike and Tina Turner) does cook up wings, chops and steaks every day. But her lovely ladies in white aprons and hairnets could also dish you up short ribs on Tuesday; neck bones and beef liver on Wednesday; oxtails and meat loaf on Thursday; catfish or buffalo (the fish) on Friday; and roast beef and turkey for a nice Sunday repast. Wash it all down with a beverage brought to your table while you gaze at the giant mural of St. Louis people and places on the wall. Portions are enormous, but you've got time. Relax beneath the lazily twirling ceiling fans and let your contented belly do the work.

We here at Girls Night Out Social Club cannot wait to experience Ms Robbie's Sweet Pie's food. I remember Ms. Robbie from Ike and Tina Turner's acts. She are beautiful then and she still is beautiful. I love the way she handle her business. She do not let her family members or anyone damage her business and rep. I say do it Ms. Robbie at Sweetie Pie's . We will be visiting both of your shops very soon. And I think you should keep that building and make another Sweetie Pie's. Those millions sound great. But Billions are even greater. God Bless you Ms. Robbie and all your Sweetie Pie's businesses. We are out of Daytona Beach, FL and our plans for our little organization is to visit various cities and township. We choose St. Louis where Sweetie Pie's is located. Mangroove location. Look for us very soon. We love you Ms Robbie and the work that you and your son, Tim and his wife Janae are doing. I know you cannot wait for that grand baby to get over so that you can spoil him rotten. Lil Charles, watch out. Grandma has a new angel to spoil.
