The Shack Pubgrub

13645 Big Bend Rd., 105 St Louis, MO 63122 | Kirkwood | 314-533-7000

Location Description:

The Shack Pubgrub is first and foremost a college hangout. It offers cheap eats, cold beer and ridiculous specials ($1 burgers on Monday!). But that student-magnet veneer cloaks a serious pedigree: The owners and chef Justin Haifley are the folks behind the acclaimed Tavern Kitchen & Bar in Valley Park. The food is simple but fun and tasty, from the perfect “Boardwalk” fries to the tasty “Smash Burger.” There are tacos both conventional (fried fish, steak) and not (chicken with...Cool Ranch Doritos). The signature sandwich, the “Shack-Which,” is a massive, hangover-curing slab of meat, cheese, french fries (in the sandwich!), cole slaw and tomato.

Business Description

The Shack Pubgrub is first and foremost a college hangout. Located a scant walk-of-shame from the Saint Louis University campus, it offers cheap eats, cold beer and ridiculous specials ($1 burgers on Monday!). But that student-magnet veneer cloaks a serious pedigree: The owners and chef Justin Haifley are the folks behind the acclaimed Tavern Kitchen & Bar in Valley Park. The food is simple but fun and tasty, from the perfect “Boardwalk” fries to the tasty “Smash Burger.” There are tacos both conventional (fried fish, steak) and not (chicken with...Cool Ranch Doritos). The signature sandwich, the “Shack-Which,” is a massive, hangover-curing slab of meat, cheese, french fries (in the sandwich!), cole slaw and tomato.
