St. Louis food: Pit Stop on The Hill
ST. LOUIS – A new restaurant opened its doors at The Hill last month, offering something different from the usual neighborhood spots.
Pit Stop is located in a converted former gas station at 2130 Macklind Avenue.
The restaurant was supposed to open in February but things were delayed. Then it was supposed to open in March, but the pandemic hit. At the end of May the restaurant opened for dinner.
At the Pit Stop, you can enjoy salads, sandwiches, burgers, seafood and fried chicken. The restaurant offers a list of starters, including roasted ravioli with brisket, salmon cake, and cheese boards.
The owners, Joe Smugala and Chef Carlos Hernandez, said they are very proud of the menu and the “new feel they have created,” according to the website.
Since opening, the restaurant has only received two reviews on Yelp – but both have received five stars.
“This place honestly blew me away! The food was exceptional! “Sergio O. wrote on Yelp:” Fives Fives Fives across the board! “
“I had the salmon with pesto and rice. My husband and son had the blues burger with red hot bacon. Oh my god the bacon is amazing. I couldn’t resist the chocolate cake with peanut butter cream. Made fresh this morning! “Stephanie M. said in her review.
The pit stop is open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m., Fridays and Saturdays from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m.
