Jimmy Fallon Visits Crown Candy Kitchen

Categories: This Just In

Comedian and future Tonight Show host Jimmy Fallon was in town last night for the first leg of his "Clean Cut" tour, and hey, guy's gotta eat, right?

So he went classic St. Louis and had lunch at Crown Candy Kitchen (1401 St. Louis Avenue; 314-621-9650).

We're dying to know what he thought, but more importantly -- especially now that he and Jimmy Kimmel will be rivals in the world of late night -- WHAT DOES HE THINK OF IMO'S?!

Fallon stopped by KSDK-TV (Channel 5) yesterday afternoon and mentioned he lives for BLTs and would be stopping by Crown Candy (not much of a milkshake drinker, however). Here is the clip:

Here's what we know about his experience from his caption on that Instagram: "Thank you St. Louis!!! First night of Clean Cut Tour - so fun!! Great city."

Gut Check called Crown Candy to see if anyone there actually served Jay Leno's replacement yesterday and can tell us about it -- we'll update if we hear anything.

We also reached out to Fallon (through Twitter) to see if he'll weigh in on the Imo's debate. C'mon, Jimmy! We need a late-night champion against the evil forces of Jim-O's. We'll update you just as soon as he gets back to us on that offer.

Gut Check is always hungry for tips. Email us!

Imos is another good choice! If you're not from St. Louis, you may not like Imos. While I have one friend in Colorado that I delivered 2 Imos pizzas too, I had another friend from New York who came to town and when she bit into her pizza she said it was like cardboard! I laughed at her. It's a St. Louis thing man!

Crown Candy...the Reuben is Amazing, so much more worth it then the BLT but I don't do Tomatoes. & IMOS is the BEST. People that criticize, just don't know and appear to want to stay ignorant of what is Great about St Louis. Good thing some people know better, of which have actually lived and eaten in Saint Louis. Jimmy Fallon ate my mini burgers and other menu items at Mosaic one night and applauded everyone who served him except the actual chef that feed him, me... can't say much for him but people like him so sir ra sir ra....

He was in town?  That's nice. Did he perform in an outhouse, at Art Hill?

No he performed on the great stage of unsurpassed Kiel Opera House, I think. The finest place in which to render and enjoy music in the Country is used mostly for standups, weddings and banquets which is pretty much tourism suicide, at least for a downtown in middle America.

So, where did he perform. And yes, it was nice he went to Crown.

Mine and the vast majority of likers of comments on this thread... lol You're entitled to like crappy pizza if you wish. Try Pi in the loop, or Peel in Belleville, and come back and have a chat about REAL pizza. :)

Imos sucks, I'd rather have him experience Pi.

Why ruin a perfectly good story about Jimmy Fallon and Crown Candy by bringing Imo's into it?

I've lived here my entire life and have never liked Imo's. I cringe every time someone uses them as a representation of the city. Provel is not cheese.

imo's is to st. louis what obama is to chicago. just because it's from there...doesn't mean it's any good.

Why Imo's? It's not that good, and it's WAY overpriced.
