    Price: 42 cents per ounce

    With a clean shop, 30 diverse toppings and 12 different flavors, there is no cooler ice cream parlor so close to Saint Louis University than The Flying Cow.

    Located on Locust Street, The Flying Cow is a five-minute walk from campus.

    In addition, it is a relatively new place that opened this past summer.

    Though we are new here with business, we promise at Flying Cow you can enjoy a healthy snack that you can cus-tomize yourself, Manager Zack Smith said.

    Thats right, The Flying Cow is a unique self-serve frozen yogurt destination where the possibilities for tasty treats are endless.

    extremely friendly employees. Customers are welcome to

    try sample after sample before they settle on a certain one.

    The Fountain on Locust

    3037 Locust St., within walk-ing distance of campus

    Price: Approximately $7 per desert

    The Fountain is said to be one of the most handsome ice cream spots in St. Louis City.

    The restaurants interior dec-oration is particularly cool, not just because of its signature ice cream, but also because of the beautiful, hand-painted Art Deco interior.

    Home of the ice cream mar-tini, every desert at the Fountain is handcrafted to look exactly like the pictures on the menu.

    With homemade ice cream sauces, chocolates, ice cream martinis, champaign floats and a variety of signature cock-tails, everything asserts The Fountains sincerity for food.

    Crown Candy Kitchen

    1401 St. Louis Ave.

    Price: $2.50 for a one-scoop cone/cup, $3.85 for a two-scoop cone/cup

    Crown Candy has been owned by the Karandzieff family since 1913, and is now living in a charming relic.

    Upon stepping in the restau-rant, the first thing that may surprise a customer might be the old-fashioned atmosphere, complete with the hand-painted wooden structure and vintage Coca-Cola trays.

    Taking a sip of the inch-thick Lovers Delight, or a strawberry-

    pineapple-marshmallow-sauced French sundae, layered with toasted cashews and chocolate sprinkles, is an adventure for your taste buds.

    The Crown Candy Kitchens turtle sundae may be the most remarkable, cloaked in silken vanilla ice cream and hot fudge, and covered with caramel sauce and buttered, toasted pecans.

    Everything is served in a soda fountain glass, soaking your heart into the sweet, old-fashioned atmosphere.

    Ted Drewes Frozen Custard

    6726 Chippewa Ave.

    Price: $5 for a concrete, $4 for a sundae

    Ted Drewes offers custom-ers a different way to indulge a sweet tooth.

    Since 1930, Ted Drewes has served St. Louisans with its sig-nature concrete, served upside down.

    Every evening, the store will gather lines growing to the edge of Chippewa Street, but that does not mean customers cannot get custard as soon as possible.

    The staff operates seven win-dows, so lines move quickly.

    Ted Drewes frozen custard is also available at select local groceries.

  • Pappys Smokehouse complements its famous barbecue sandwiches with delectable sides, including sweet potato fries and coleslaw. Other side item menu favorites include baked beans, potato salad, fried corn on the cob, green beans and baked potatoes.

    Only at Pappys Smokehouse will fanatics wait in a line that extends out the back door just to sink their teeth into some good old Memphis-style barbecue.

    Named as the best barbecue joint in the United States by a recent Zagat survey, Pappys crme de la crme meats and their out-of-the-ordinary busi-ness culture capture the hearts of both local residents and trav-elers alike.

    Mike Emerson, owner of Pappys Smokehouse, grills with a unique mindset.

    His slogan, Weve got noth-ing to hide, so the sauce is on the side, accurately describes why Pappys ribs and beef bris-ket spends anywhere between four and 14 hours in the smoker, above apple or cherry wood.

    It is left up to the customer to choose which of the three home-made sauces to devour.

    The simple, but delicious, sides, including sweet potato fries, baked beans and more, are nothing short of extraordinary.

    Pappys just celebrated their third birthday this year.

    In such a short time, Emerson and his staff have had their share in the scope from critics across the nation. Pappys has been featured on the Food Network and other related tele-vision channels.

    Famous critic Adam Richman, from the TV series Man Versus

    Food, made a pit stop in St. Louis to film an episode.

    Richman was pinned up against the $35 dollar Big Ben meal on his trip to the Gateway City.

    Emerson invented the Adam bomb, which then became planted on the full-time menu in his honor.

    Seasoned customers under-stand to head to the smoke-

    house early because Pappys is officially closed once the last bits of brisket are scarfed down.

    Arriving early is a must, even though the visitors sometimes arrive before the doors are offi-cially opened for the day.

    If an early trip is out of the question, Pappys encourag-es customers to call ahead of time and order for pickup, at 314-535-4340.

    Pi Pizzeria, presidentially-approved food and fare

    The deep-dish, Chicago-style pizza served at Pi Pizzeria has captured the hearts and taste buds of critics and food maga-zines alike.

    The restaurant gained popu-larity when President Obama visited St. Louis and ordered pizzas for his staff, prompting the opening of a new location in Washington, D.C. this fall.

    With four permanent loca-tions in the St. Louis metro area, including Kirkwood, the Delmar Loop, the Central West End and

    By MATT EMODIStaff Writer

    one on wheels, the Pi Truck, there is no need to stress about getting that needed pizza fix.

    The prices for either a thin crust or deep dish pizza may be a bit steep, but signs show these conceptions have failed to deter people from swinging by for a hearty meal and a drink or two.

    A pizza, thick or thin, can cost anywhere from $11 to $20, dep-pending on the topping selec-tion.

    The deep dish pizza caught me totally off guard, said junior John Kozlik. It only took two slices to fill me up.

    To accommodate the upper-

    end prices are much larger slic-es of pizza, as many Chicago-style pizzas live up to.

    Drinks, on the other end, have people calling Pis Green Hour one of the best happy hours in the city. From 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day, Pi offers varying drink specials at every location, not to mention their lengthy list of draft beers.

    Not only has this restaurant become a hot spot for happy hour fiends, but they serve breakfast every day starting at 6 a.m.

    Their almost famous break-fast pizza is popular among

    many hot and cold breakfast items, such as waffles, biscuits and scones.

    Pi has become a staple to St. Louis dining.

    One might crave a simple sit-down meal with friends, or be found using Twitter to locate the official Pi Truck (@PiTruckSTL) that could be sta-tioned anywhere in St. Louis.

    This pizzeria is unlike many in the industry, with trendy happy hour specials and hours of operation that are not com-mon. Like a typical college stu-dent, Pi believes that pizza is good at anytime of the day.

    The Central West End Pi location includes a full-service, wrap-around bar for patrons.
