Fozzie's Sandwich Emporium opened back in June 2010 and was the first St. Louis restaurant to serve a Minneapolis-St. Paul favorite, the Juicy Lucy, a burger with the cheese stuffed inside the patty. Since then, we've named it one of the five best sandwich spots in the city, one of the best places to get grilled cheeses and Food & Wine even named owner Mark Lucas one of twenty "sandwich chefs to know" across the country.

So, needless to say, we were psyched when we found out Fozzie's was opening a new location. Plus, they deliver! The Des Peres location will deliver to zip codes 63011, 63021, 63088, 63119, 63122, 63124, 63126, 63127, 63131, 63141 and 63144. It will open at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, August 28.
