With a Stag Beer light overhanging the unused front door and Pabst in cans on the drink list, you know this is a special kind of place. Walk into BJ's pizza in Old Town Florissant, and you step into a different universe. You can pick up cheese or veggies by the pound, buy a carton of cigarettes, or even have a beer. You want an 8 ounce bottle of Bud? Okay!
The food will tempt you, even if all the old political signs and posters are trying to keep your attention. From the tastiest, crispest St. Louis-style pizza to the 1/2 pound bacon cheeseburger, it's all good. Beer battered onion rings, fish sandwiches, rib-eye on a roll... The choices go on, and most of them are the kind that will go straight to your hips.
BJ's has the requisite pull-tab machines, as well as a deer hunting game and a video jukebox, to keep you occupied while the big screen tv is showing commercials. The bartenders are down-to-earth, and the guys who write up your order are good with faces. You'll quickly feel like a regular, and this place will make you want to be one.
