STL: Joey B's

On Hampton Avenue where the old Bartolino's used to be. Joe Bonwich gave it a good review, but if I'm reading right only a half star rating out of a possible five. Anyone been there.?

  1. I am assuming you are talking about this review?

    I don't see any stars or star ranking at all.

    Based on the pictures and comments, it looks pretty good!

      I thought so, too, FOTD, but look on the top of the review. It has a half star. But this was in the St. Louis Post Dispatch.

        I'm not sure I know what you mean when you say "but this was in the post dispatch". If it was a review by Joe Bonwich, you can usually trust his opinion. But if it was a reader's rating...I would go find out for yourself.

        1. re: CheesemongersWife

          Joey B's is indeed this week's featured restaurant review by Joe Bonwich in the Post Dispatch. It was a bit hard to find in the online edition, not in its usual featured place. He was generally favorable -- big portions, good value, tasty food. But once again I am grateful for him saving me the trip by specifying that they allow smoking.

    2. Looks ordinary and more of the same to me. Big portions, lots of caloric dairy products, mostly fried apps. So what if if only got a half star, or whatever. If it appeals to you go for it and find out for yourself. It's not a major investment.
