St. Louis without a car

I'll be in downtown St. Louis for a conference for the next three days and I'm looking for some good food. I'm interested in anything that's walkable or possibly on the metro. Any kind of food (so long as it's good) but BBQ is especially appealing.

    The best BBQ in our area is a short cab ride away downtown. Pappy's BBQ is amazing. They close when they run out of food, so go for lunch or an ealier dinner. I have had everything there except the chicken. The ribs, pulled pork, brisket, turkey and links are all fantastic. I always get the cole slaw and baked beans, but have tasted the sweet potato fries and the fried corn. I even liked the frito pie. All awesome. No beer or booze though.

    Enjoy.

      I hear Anthony's right downtown has a FANTASTIC burger. It is the brother of Tony's who is probably the most famous restaurant in St. Louis.

        I like 410 Olive in the Hilton, at the corner of 4th and Olive.

        For Peruvian food, it is an easy walk to the new location of Mango.

          I grew up in STL and the title of this thread made me uncomfortable (and I've lived car-free for 20 years since then)
