Best pizza in Saint Louis: I have been to Uncle Leo's four times now, and have had great experiences. The people that answer the phone were polite and informative. They told me up front about their specials. I asked them about their ingredients and was told that most of all the ingredients come from the hill, but the pizza dough is made from scratch every day from a family recipe. I have had Pizza, Italian sub, Hamburger and fries and an appetizer called Spinocci (WOW). I have had several pizzas, even picked up seven for a party. The pizzas were hot and loaded with ingredients. The crust is thin and more like a cracker not dough. The Italian sub was unbelievable and loaded with meat. Now for the Hamburgers, my wife had the regular cheeseburger and fries and I had the double cheeseburger. You had better be hungry because the double was about a pound of meat, and cooked just like I ordered it. The last pizzas I ordered were half baked. The next day I baked them at 475 degrees for 10min and they were perfect!!! Keep it up Uncle Leo's
I didn't know about Fortel's until I moved to Kirkwood, and it really is one of the best pizza places around. The crust has a wonderful, crispy, olive oil crustiness to it that always holds up well to whatever toppings you add. We always get two 10 or 12 inch pizzas to maximize pizza variety, and to guard against a soggy middle, which we've found can happen at Fortel's with the larger pizzas. That's a small concern, though.You always get just the right amount of toppings and sauce. Plus, those toppings are gourmet level and they've got seven different sauces to choose from. Not many pizza places can say that! They also have some of the best fries and house salad dressing around. Put the Bottle neck French Fries together with their House Dressing and you will not stop eating until it's all gone! I've never had a bad pizza, salad or appetizer from Fortel's. Do yourself a favor and give them a call the next time your need your pizza itch scratched.
I knew someone who worked at the Pizza Hut on tesson ferry road in the St. Louis mo 63128 area code. Unfortunately I heard that an employee went to the restroom in the fryer once and that drugs and alcohol were frequently used at the establishment by employees on the clock. As well as some employees were having sex w minors in the storage shed that belongs to the business corporation and is located right by the dumpster. Thank you for your loyal concern as a Pizza Hut customer. God Bless. Btw another person who used to work there had there car stolen by some of the employees then vandalized followed by the corporation impounding the car and the former worker couldn't afford to get their car back so their car is permanently vandalized in a city impound lot.
Today was my first time ever frequenting this establishment in all my years as a St. Louis resident. I have to say to all that will listen, this was the best decision I've made all week in regards to dining in the downtown area. It was a self service buffet that included a spectrum of choices for every tastebud. The food was hot, fresh, and the service was excellent. The environment was very comfortable and accomodating. It also has a bar area for those who want to enjoy the adult refreshments, possibly before or after a Cardinal game. From the amount of traffic the business receives its a no brainer why it has been in business for the time it has. Great job guys, I'll be back for sure.
The Dewey's off Delmar is our favorite stop for pizza. So much so that I have made this my birthday dinner stop for the past 6 years and counting. I love that they rotate their beers on tap. Their calzones (our kids favorite item) are amazing. Their marinara has a bit of a bite - which I like but turns some people off. The crust is amazing. Love their salads and their specialty pizza options. Their plain cheese pizza is amazing as well. Lot's of options for non-meat eaters like ourselves. Amazing team service. Windows to the kitchen allow kids to watch as they toss and top the pizzas. Highly recommend. (Warning: This is NOT St. Louis style. No provel in this pizza house.)
This place is busy all the time, or so it seems. Every time I go in there to eat or to carry out, it's buzzing with activity. They are known for their pizza and calzones. They offer some specialty pizza's in addition to the normal build-your-own pizzas. Their salad choices are very good too, which makes this a good place to take the whole family even if you don't have pizza lovers. Seating is a bit crowded since it's not a large space and they do a very big carryout business so it can be crowded as you wait for a table. The service has always been good when I've been there or carried out. It's become a hot place to go in Kirkwood for the locals.
At my old job, my boss bought us all Maurizio's pizza one day, after scoring a huge contract with the boss. This was back when the location was still under construction. At any rate, I can honestly say it was one of the best pizzas I've ever had. Not in the sense that all the toppings *I* would have picked were on it, but rather, being what it was (I think I had sausage and mushrooms), this pizza was the booommmmbbbbb. I haven't been to their location on-site, and also haven't given them any more patronage just 'cuz I'm not in the mood for pizza too often, but still, this was one of the best pizzas I've ever had! Two thumbs up.
We ate at this restaurant on a rainy, week day night with few patrons in the bar at 8:00 pm at night so we sat in the bar area and watched the FIFA women's USA soccer tournament and ate the best Mostaccioli that we've ever had. We shared a dish and it was more than enough for the two of us. Thought we'd have room for dessert but the main dish filled us both up. Wonderful service from the bartender and great food. Might be hard to access this restaurant if the Cardinals are playing since it is located downtown and close to the stadium, but we were not rushed and had fabulous service and food.
We love Fortel's at our house. When anyone brings up pizza, we know where we're going. We're stuck on the Shelley's Deluxe and have ordered it maybe 10 times without trying anything else! It's 3 meats and lots of veggies. The veggies are always fresh, the meat is in small pieces - not like other places with huge chunks of sausage that doesn't get cooked through and the sauce is terrific - not too spicy or too sweet. The Fortel's in Fairview Heights is very friendly, and kid friendly too. We're raising our 3 year old twin grandsons to know right where to go for pizza!
The black thorn is this little hole in the wall bar...that just happens to serve the very best pizza you have ever had. The wait can easily be close to 2 hours to get a pizza. Definately get the Chicago Style. The regular thick crust pizza is good, but just doesn't compare to their Chicago Style. This pizza just screams that it is made with top quality ingrediants. Who would have ever guessed the best pizza you will ever try would come from such a place. Don't believe me? Well give it a try and I am sure you will have changed your favorite place to get pizza...I did.
