BlackThorn Pub and Pizza

Tucked within Tower Grove South at the corner of Spring and Wyoming, BlackThorn Pub and Pizza is an old-school South-side watering hole that also happens to serve some of the city’s best pizza. The delightfully divey neighborhood haunt is well-known throughout the city for its deep-dish Chicago-style za drowning in mozzarella and their famous spicy sauce. And the kitchen also serves up thin-crust and pan pizzas, as well as a small selection of other joint staples like garlic bread and a few basic salads. If you decide to grab dinner at BlackThorn, be prepared to make an evening of it. You can expect to wait awhile for your pie whether it’s busy or not, but the chalkboard walls, shuffleboard table, and retro arcade games that give the neighborhood bar its quintessentially South St. Louis vibe - not to mention the freely-flowing drinks from a full bar - will provide more than enough entertainment to keep you occupied until the main course arrives.
