Just visited one of our favorite places to eat when near Granite City. Great fried chicken, great pasta, even better desserts! Excellent wait staff. If your really hungry try the King Pasta Pie. Usually bring at least half home in a doggy bag.

always like getting the family sized meal to go from Rav's. Pretty quick service, usually use the drive through window (after ordering ahead). They also have a nice selection of pies. Wish they had cherry, don't really like the mountain berry pie. They also have a nice all you can eat on weekdays around lunch. Again one of the best... More

In the entire metro area of St. Louis, this restaurant serves up the best friend chicken. It is pressure cooked, which is unusual, and it is so moist and delicious. They offer an extensive menu in addition to the chicken. The service is always good.

Been here bunch of times before but never realized how good the ravioli were. Got some this time and I'll be getting them next time too! The baked rigatoni is what I always get and it never disappoints. Some tof the service is hit and miss. They hire younger people who don't exactly refined their service skills. But we're ok... More

Great broasted chicken. Great salad. GREAT bakery goods. Quick polite servers. The buffet I only had once was good for the money. Banana cream pie is to die for.
