Sister Cities Cajun and BBQ (4144 South Grand Boulevard; 314-875-9653)

kdjohnst: Sister Cities on South Grand. The place is about as unpretentious as a restaurant can get, while at the same time serving up food worth of a place that charges four times as much. There is not a single thing on their menu that isn't drool worthy, and the bang for your buck can't be beat. I have legitimately considered ordering their gumbo by the gallon so that I can have it for every meal. The jambalaya, etoufee, fried chicken, po boys, mussels....everything is absolutely amazing. My family drove 6 hours round trip just to go eat lunch there. If that doesn't say it all, I don't know what does.

Riverbend Restaurant & Bar (701 Utah Street; 314-664-8443)

@MattHeldermanfrom: @RiverfrontTimes without a doubt, it's Riverbend. Nobody in town gives you the #NOLA experience like @Riverbendbar

Boogaloo (7344 Manchester Road, Maplewood; 314-645-4803)

@adamhilgendorffrom: @RiverfrontTimes boogaloo
Kitchen Sink (255 Union Boulevard; 314-454-1551)
nrb14: Kitchen Sink!

How is Gulf Shores not even on the list? City-biased much?! Gulf Shores is way better than all of these combined.

While technically not a Cajun restaurant, Farmhaus Tuesday's lunch sausage and peppers with dirty rice is as good as New Orleans...just saying

There are few things in life better than a Cochon De lait from Riverbend.....dressed of course.

Gallagher's Restaurant in Waterloo, while not a Cajun restaurant, has as good a bowl of gumbo as anyone in town.
