Riverfront Times' Description

CLOSED - The U is a fitting name, given the restaurant's proximity to the Saint Louis University campus, and the sandwich-intensive menu even features a course-catalogue motif. The reuben is at the head of the U's class (though it's not served on the customary rye bread), with the exact right ratio of shaved corned beef to sauerkraut. The chicken ranch club offers a peppery sauce and fried onion straws while the hot Italian beef sandwich pairs very thin meat with banana peppers and spicy, tart giardiniera sauce. Bar hoppers and insomniacs take note: The U is open till 3:30 a.m.

    Even if you're not a vegetarian, try the sesame tofu. It kills.

    Everything here is delicious. If you're looking for great delivery, even late night, or a comfortable place to dine in with cheap beer and free wifi, the U is it!

    Best fries in town

  • Matt S. on 09/06/10

    Call in a to-go order at Pappy's and come over here for beers.

  • Devin E. on 02/02/10

    The Cobb salad is the best! Also get up early and treat yourself to breakfast.
