yeah, i'd agree with this. 90% of people who are hard core about imo's being great are pretty much so passionate about it because it's a st. louis style with a cheese biproduct on it that was made in st. louis. Happens no matter where you live there will always be something terrible that the locals worship because it's from that city. I know so many people that never eat imo's by choice yet when someone attacks it they jump down their throats.

"Local" pizza is like local barbeque or local chili styles / preferences - if you grew up with something, no matter how odd or "wrong" it may be to "outsiders", there's still a certain amount of indefinable comfort food that remains.  It's not rational, so it's an argument you'll never win . . . .

St. Louisans will never miss an opportunity to show how unique and freethinking they are by hating on Imo's. Shooting fish in a barrel requires more effort.

Just had BT pizza Friday and it was delish! Imo's should pair a different sauce with provel.

I'm going to make some enemies here, but Faraci's is the most overrated pizza in STL.

@ellav8or Food truck is a definite possibility. My only concern is that the pool of potential nominees is still pretty small.
