These establishments in St. Louis do not get as much love as we all think. Sure business is great or lack there of. They still need their flowers now to continue to plant their growth.

And the strange part about most of these businesses in metro Gateway, I have never been to. As a result, that is a great thing.

Because it clearly shows greatness, because eveidently someone in St. Louis is talking. Otherwise, how would I know to place them on my list.

All of the Top 5 are women’s operators, but not to worry this is Part 1 of a very long series.

With their crispy mouth-watering Tripe, chicken and soul food, you will never go hungry getting fed. Tripe City is also on a mission to feed the less unfortunate this holiday season as well. So, feel more than free to stop by and support.
