Best St. Louis-Style Pizza 

BJ's Bar & Restaurant

From the outside, BJ's looks like a boarded-up biker bar. OK, it looks like that from the inside, too. The windows are covered, the front door is blocked, and the space seems like it hasn't had a facelift since, well, ever. But don't let the rough-and-tumble appearance fool you. BJ's has been serving its signature thin-crust pizza before Imo was a glimmer in his mom and pop's eyes. The crust, while thin, is a touch heftier and flakier than what is typically served in the Gateway City. That allows it to stand up to more toppings, such as the hamburger or sausage the staff at BJ's makes in house. Boldly risking the ire of St. Louis-style pizza purists, BJ's uses mozzarella cheese to cover its rectangular slices of heaven. And don't worry if you burn the roof of your mouth: The friendly bartenders are always ready with a Mason jar cocktail that's about as stiff and cheap as they come. 184 Washington Street, Florissant, 63031. 314-837-7783,
