PJ's Tavern (123 W. Jefferson Avenue, Kirkwood; 314-966-2001) PJ's Tavern is more of a family-oriented bar and grill, and has been a Kirkwood favorite since 1996. The walls here are decorated with brightly colored lettermen jackets from St. Louis high schools and other local sports memorabilia. If you're looking to watch a game, PJ's offers no fewer than six high-definition flat screens to peek at while going to town on a half-pound burger and fries.

Amigos Cantina (120 W. Jefferson Street, Kirkwood; 314-821-0877) Beginning with its colorful storefront, Amigos Cantina offers a taste of authentic Mexican cuisine, as well as a few gringo favorites. Entrées include that Tex-Mex staple, fajitas. Tacos, burritos and quesadillas manage to bridge the gap between Americanized Mexican food and the real deal, and for a taste of taqueria cuisine, consider a torta, the traditional Mexican sandwich. The cheese dip, made from Monterey jack, is a thick, guilty pleasure. Beyond tasty food, Amigos has also gained the reputation for its mixed- and shaken-to-order margaritas. The blend of Hornitos Plata tequila, Cointreau, freshly squeeze lime juice and agave nectar is a dangerously delicious combination.
