Black Thorn Pub & Pizza is somewhat of a hidden gem of pizzerias, and I only knew of it thanks to someone that lives in the area. It is tucked away in a neat older neighborhood in southern St. Louis, and is well known to the locals for its Chicago-style pizza. They also offer thin and pan crust, but I had to try their more famous Chicago-style offering. I really enjoyed two things about the pizza; it’s great amount of cheese and its sauce, which had a little more spunk or spice than most. There isn’t a huge amount of eat-in area at Black Thorn Pub & Pizza as it looks a little more like a dive bar inside, and I hear there is usually a big line of customers waiting to pick up their pizzas on Friday and Saturday nights. It is definitely a great local pizza place worth trying in St. Louis though, and they do have a shuffleboard table to keep you busy while you wait for your pizza (that is, if drinking isn’t enough on its own).
