You can't see the butter in the photo I took. Believe me, though, it's there, a pool of melted gold slicking each soft bite of baked pretzel with a hint of sweetness. Swirl the pretzel in the jalapeño cheese dip (or maybe that's "cheese" dip -- I don't know whether that cheese is real and, frankly, I don't care), and the pretzels now have a double layer of unctuous fat and a mildly spicy kick.
Is there a more over-the-top bar snack in St. Louis? Without doubt. Is there a better
bar snack? I'm still looking.Joey B's on the Hill

$5.99I'm counting down -- in no particular order -- 100 of my
dishes in St. Louis. Some are well-known, others obscure. Some are
expensive, others dirt cheap. All of them, I guarantee, are delicious.
