The 6 Best St. Louis Sports Bars for Food

Read Full Story

Lester's is the rare sports bar where the first thing that springs to mind is its food. Specifically, the sandwiches rightly deemed "colossal" on its menu: Favorites such as pastrami, corned beef (both cured in-house), brisket and turkey come piled comically high, so much so that finishing even one half of one "colossal" sandwich is a feat. (Fear not, sandwiches also come in mortal sizes.) Everything here is homemade, and considering Lester's menu encompasses soups, salads, entrees, burgers, barbecue and dessert, that's a feat as well. Dozens upon dozens of large HD TVs ensure that there's really not a bad seat in the house. Though the Ladue address is its flagship, there are also locations in Chesterfield and in the Central West End.
