By Riverfront Times Staff

THE BEST SCHNUCKS WEST OF THE RIVER
    Schnucks Harvester Square
    60 Harvester Square
    St. Charles, MO 63303
    Don't let the busted "H" in the Schnucks sign fool you, this is the golden Schnucks of St. Charles. Perhaps a hidden gem, this Schnucks is tucked into a corner of a badass strip mall: A Dollar General, GreatClips, thrift store and more will handle a weekend's worth of errands in one trip. This Schnucks is smaller than others on the list, but the phrase "tiny but mighty" comes to mind. Well-stocked and quiet, you can find what you're looking for with ease and don't have to worry about running into the college kids that frequent the First Capitol Schnucks. It does lack some of the perks the other stores possess, but a CVS pharmacy and full grocery will satisfy those who prefer a no-frills grocery experience.

Liliana’s Italian Kitchen
    (11836 Tesson Ferry Road, 314-729-1800)
    “We LOVE Liliana's! Came here on a whim one night because we wanted pizza but not Imo's (no shade)! We were NOT disappointed. First of all, love that they have a drive-up window. The only thing better than delicious pizza is delicious pizza you don't need to put a bra on to get. They also don't fry the fried stuff until you get there so it's super fresh and crispy -- the calamari is some of the best I've ever had (I know, in Missouri. I don't get it either but it's true). We also loved their fried artichokes! Both some with a mildly spicy aioli which is fab.” - Samantha K. Read RFT’s food editor Cheryl Baehr’s thoughts here.
