It’s a rare thing that sometimes, on this side of Illinois, you find yourself in a bar that reminds you of the legendary Fast Eddies Bon-Air.
Cruisin’ Route 66 is that bar. Not only do they serve up original, independent St. Louis music 5 days a week, Karaoke on Thursdays, but they also serve up some cheap, delicious food.
Take for instance their Big Ass Burger. (That is its official name, check the menu).
It’s 1/3 lbs of awesome, you can get it cooked to order – always get Medium Rare, just for juicyness’ sake – it comes with steak fries and you get it all for $3.
It used to be $1, but since you now get an order of fries and more veggies with it, I think that’s a fair trade.
The bar itself is rather large, with a total seating capacity in the 500s. You can go see a show, have a beer ($2 you-call-its from 8pm-10pm, including all specialty beers) and order this delicous burg all while having plenty of room.
Another thing of note, is the serving staff. All women, all hot as the sun and all very good at what they do.
So the burg itself is cheap, fast and tastes great, the atmosphere is truly superior, the music is generally top-notch and the beers are cold.
Definitely a must-go experience, from start to finish.
