  1. St. Louis is pretty good for pub fare. The wings are yummy, they come with a dipping sauce that is a mix between ranch and dill. The menu isnt big and the food is cheap, even cheaper lunch specials. If u just want to go for wings and ribs with a few pints, i would recommend it for sure. Oh, they also have onion chips, definalty get those instead of fries. Last time i was there was a few weeks ago, i was with one other person and our bill was around $30, and it wasnt lunch time. We each had a small wing/fry combo (9 good sized wings) and we each also upgraded to onion chips(like a buck 30 extra per person), and we had 2 sodas each. Not a bad deal if you ask me. I've been to the St Louis across from the Rogers Center, and the one near the airport on dixon rd. Both locations are consistant. Although i have never ordered the ribs, i have sampled from a friends plate. The ribs are good from what i remember, the only part that stuck in my mind is that the meat falls off the bone, which is a good start :)

    1. Yah, Ive only been to the one at Y and E, and I found the wings to be good, and the ribs to be really good too. I actually like the fries, though theyre probably frozen but if I remember right, they have a nice spice on them. The onion chips however, are better. Whatever you do though, dont get the nachos, theyre exactly the kinda cheesy sauce mess you get at movie theatres.

      1. I was at the Yonge and Sheppard location (which is actually closer to North York Centre) a few weeks ago to meet friends to watch the Leaf game. I was very underwhelmed by the food. I had the honey garlic wings, and tried some of my friend's medium-hot ones as well. Both were kind of flavourless, and not very meaty. The fries and appetizers looked like they came from the McCain frozen food section at the supermarket, and were kinda greasy. Maybe the other locations are better? I vaguely remember going to the Eglinton location four or five years ago and being more impressed.

          My wife and i always preferred Duffs over St. Louis. The St. Louis near yonge and Sheppard was particularly bad. Steps north on Yonge from that location was Fern's at Yonge & Hounslow, a decent, inelegant neighbourhood bar. It's the kind of place you pop into after cuttng the lawn or cycling downtown and back. I found their wings while preparing to move from the city. Has anyone tried the wings there? I found them amazing. So did anyone we took there.

          Is it still there? Anyone been there recently?

            Wouldn't that be Ferg's at Ellerslie??

              Yes, that's the one - sorry for my misdirection.

                the wing's at Ferg's are great, fries are good, and their sweet potato fries are amazing!
                St. Louis Wings has the weird batter I just never enjoyed and the fries.. All i can say is blah..

        2. Definitely the Y&E location. That's the only location that I've really been to, and it has never let me down once over the last 4 or so years.

          1. I've been several times and the wings are excellent. My only complaint with them is I like saucy wings and they aren't.

            The onion chips are amazing.
