Part of the Bartolino's family of restaurants, which also consists of Bartolino's Osteria and Chris' Pancake & Dining, Bartolino's South opened in 1982 and serves upscale Italian fare. Lunch selections include pizzas - some of which are made with Provel, others get more exotic with asiago or gorgonzola - risotto and a hefty sandwich menu. Dinner brings an extended version of the lunch menu, with more risotto options, steak, fish and veal.
Bob Evans is an American restaurant chain. This location is located in south St. Louis county.
Bommarito's Pizzeria serves up small, medium and large pies from its small shop in south county. Toppings include the standards - pepperoni, black olives and pineapple - and a few nonstandard options, including shrimp and banana peppers. Specialty pizzas include the Don Antonio, with extra-virgin olive oil, prosciutto, garlic, mozzarella, artichokes, Kalamata olives, capers, basil, crushed San Marzano tomatoes and Parmigiano-Reggiano. Bommarito's also offers appetizers, calzones, sandwiches and a simple selection of pastas. Diners can sit in the dining room or, on nice days, enjoy the restaurant's patio. Bommarito's accepts cash and checks only, and also delivers.
Jonathan Seitz, who co-founded the local Bandanas Bar-B-Q chain, has moved on — sort of. He and partner Chris Makos have transformed a former Wendy’s in Affton into a barbecue joint. The menu is what you’d expect: pulled pork, pork ribs, beef brisket, chicken and turkey, all smoked over hickory and pecan woods. The ribs are very good, in large part thanks to a nicely balanced dry rub that adds both spice and sweetness. The surprise is the turkey, incredibly tender and flavorful. The fried biscuits, which accompany every platter, have the potential to become an object of cult worship and a destination in themselves.
It's easy to miss Bosna Grill, nestled as it is in a nondescript Affton strip mall between a cell-phone store and an income-tax preparer, identified by a tiny sign barely visible from Gravois Road. But it's worth the hunt because here you will find the best cevapi you will ever eat outside of Bosnia. It's true. The little beef sausages are all freshly grilled — no heat lamps or steam tables here! — then tucked in a spongy, round, ciabatta-like roll called lepinja (also lightly grilled). You can garnish as you like with sour cream and chopped onions. Bosna Grill also offers a reasonably priced Bosnian meat sampler that gives you a fine introduction to the national cuisine: pljeskavica (the Bosnian answer to a hamburger); suduk (a spicy sausage); chicken and veal; all served with a side of excellent fries and ajvar, a peppery sauce.
The South County location of this local chain serves up traditional Mexican-restaurant fare at affordable prices. Starters include guacamole, quesadillas and nachos, while the main event offers fajitas, a la carte items, chimichangas and combo platters. Margaritas, of course, are on the menu, with all the classics and specialties, including a Red Bull margarita.
Affton's Concord Grill, located near Lindbergh Boulevard and Tesson Ferry Road on Concord Village Avenue, is all about the burgers. It does offer a full menu, with fried chicken, appetizers, salads, steaks, catfish and other big, comfort meals, but the heart and soul of the Concord Grill is the burgers. It all starts with the basic, ten-ounces of ground beef, charbroiled and cooked to order, served with seasoned fries and lettuce, onion and pickles. From there, the options explode. Try the burger #24 with port wine cheddar cheese and bacon, or Hawaiian topped with sweet-and-sour sauce, pineapple and bacon, or the Chuckie burger covered with sautéed green peppers, onions, gravy and Provel. Hungry diners can take their order up a notch with the "KJ Big burger," a thirteen-ounce patty that comes with three double toppings of the diner's choosing. Patrons can enjoy their burgers in the large patio, or burger garden, during warm weather. Concord also offers daily lunch platters, including meat loaf, roast beef and chicken strips, served with mashed potatoes, gravy and green beans.
"Eat Rite or Don't Eat At All." So it says on the coffee cups (and the souvenir T-shirts) at this no-frills 24-hour greasy spoon amid the industrial wasteland between downtown and Soulard. Folks come from miles around to fill up on the breakfast-and-burgers menu: bar-hoppers and club kids finally coming down from their late-night-into-early-morning highs; factory workers and blue-collars getting off graveyard shifts; curious newcomers who've heard about the bizarro vibe that pervades these cramped counter-only environs. To call the food at Eat-Rite cheap is an understatement -- six burgers (real-size, not White Castle-size) run $4.50. And many swear by the Eat-Rite's redoubtable slinger (for the uninitiated, that'd be fried eggs, hash browns and a burger patty, avec chili).
Originally, the stollen was created for the advent season in Germany and was traditionally a flavorless, spartan concoction perfect for a season of fasting. Hundreds of years later, St. Louis pastry-eaters can count their blessings that this is no longer the case, and Federhofer's Bakery in Affton takes full advantage of this sweet and decadent recipe upgrade. In addition to their grocery list of available stollens, including citrus, honeybee, German chocolate and the seasonal strawberry, this South County establishment also serves up fresh Danishes, donuts, coffee cakes, pies and pastries of nearly limitless varieties. Decorated cakes and fresh bread are also available.
Fortel's has changed considerably since Bob Fortel bought the Pizza Den in 1981 and rechristened it Fortel's Pizza Den. The original Affton location has been replaced with a new, larger facility, and there are several additional Fortel's in the metro area. Still, the draw remains the pizza: thin-crust pies topped with mozzarella and your choice of sauce and toppings. Though the house red sauce is excellent, you can experiment with barbecue sauce, pesto or even gravy. Toppings include the usual suspects, as well as corned beef, sauerkraut and eggplant. The menu includes pasta, sandwiches and fried appetizers.
