The Scene: Hwy 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen is a hefty helping of New Orleans smack dab in Webster Groves. The spacious dining areas and bar feature a veritable kaleidoscope of Mardi Gras and blues paraphernalia -- everything f rom colorful murals and fleur de lis flags to funky, jeweled chandeliers. Patrons of all ages seem to convene here; the atmosphere is a lively in more ways than one.

The Food: Southern comfort food reigns supreme. The appetizer menu features around twenty different options that range from $5.99 to $12.99, including a dish made famous by Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives: Cajun potstickers. The take on the classic Chinese dumpling features a filling of andouille sausage, vegetables & sambal chili sauce, pan-seared then steamed. We imagine that the restaurant sells a lot of these, and for good reason. Paired with a creole soy dipping sauce, they're a savory and satisfying take on a comforting classic.
