Krueger's Bar

In an area known for its fashionable cafes and glitzy martini bars, Krueger's is the best kind of anomaly: a genuinely old-school neighborhood watering hole. In this bar on the outskirts of Clayton (smoking is permitted, folks), they might not know your name when first you walk in, but they'll make it their business to learn it -- and to make you feel welcome while they're at it. Just steps off the Forsyth MetroLink stop, Krueger's boasts sidewalk dining with a full menu of reasonably priced eats. The menu features burgers, salads and hot and cold sandwiches, including a poor boy with salami, roast beef, ham and cheeses served on Fazio's French bread and a turkey melt on rye with tomato and American cheese. All can be served with a side of action from Busch Stadium, depending on the day.
