St Louis, MO 63104
Riverfront Times's Description
In appearance and ambiance, Sassy JAC’s is the quintessential Soulard tavern. Yet chef Andrew Ladlie, who owns Sassy JAC’s with his wife, Jennifer, brings a serious pedigree to the party: His résumé includes time as the sous chef at west-county institution Annie Gunn’s. The fare is southern, unfussy and delicious. Standouts include a spicy blackened grouper sandwich, a “club” sandwich with chicken and andouille, excellent fried chicken in gravy (Wednesdays only) and topnotch garlic fries.
Tips from foursquare
It’s easy for a Monte Cristo to go overboard with sweet, but Sassy JAC's strikes the perfect sweet-savory balance. To borrow from Joey Tribbiani: "Jam: Good. Meat: Gooood." (Gabe Hartwig)
RFT 2012 Best of St. Louis Winner - Best French Fries- Crisp, medium-thick, with a tender interior- tossed with diced garlic to perfection! http://bit.ly/QFYRqH
One of Soulards hidden gems. Easily one of the best restaurants in town. The chef made great recommendations and came and checked on how the food was after it had been served. Try the pecan chicken!
Summer beer (blue moon with a shot of citron) goes awesome with crawfish fritters and frog legs.
