Happy Hour at Hwy 61 Roadhouse and Kitchen: Taste the South in Webster Groves
The Verdict: With a pretty vast range of appetizers and correspondingly varying prices, digging into Hwy 61's "Opening Numbers" menu can be a good deal, if planned strategically. On the somehwat higher end of the menu, the "Louisiana Bbq shrimp," hits the spot with plump, flavorful shrimp swimming in a piquant sauce. We also enjoyed the "Roadhouse Fries" topped with pulled pork, bacon, cheddar cheese sauce and scallions. The plate's a big one and gets the job done with a trifecta of satiating savory flavors: potato, meat and cheese.

For a sweet take on starch, opt for an inexpensive order of sweet potato fries, also in waffle-form. Crispy and slightly sweet, they're a tasty alternative to the otherwise salt-loving appetizer menu. We're not exactly sure if we'd reach for the bleach to show our allegiance to Guy's recommendations, but we can certainly agree that Hwy 61 is a "dive" worth stopping by.
