ST. LOUIS — A St. Louis favorite was featured in ‘Food and Wine’ as one of the top fast food restaurants in the United States and the best in Missouri.

Writer David Landsel gave nods to Lion’s Choice’s roast beef, their selection of sauces and their custard.

‘Those classic roast beef sandwiches, some of the best you’ll find at a fast food joint, and to the little dispensers sitting on the counter labeled “Au Jus,” from which you may allow yourself just as much as you like, turning that sandwich into a French dip, for all you care. (Don’t forget the horseradish.) For starters, though, can we talk about the ice cream? Being St. Louis, where they know from these things, it’s more like frozen custard, thick and creamy, and it’s being sold for pennies. Seriously, a regular sized cone, which back in the old days would have been considered enough ice cream in one sitting, costs just 50 cents, at least whenever we’ve been to a Lion’s Choice, which isn’t nearly enough.’
