The bars of Main Street in St. Charles tend to blend in with one another, and from the outside, Cooper's Legendary American Pub (140 North Main Street, St. Charles; 636-724-5505) is no exception. However, step inside this humble bar and grill, order the roasted chicken spinach flatbread, and it quickly becomes clear that Cooper's is a standout.
The roasted chicken spinach flatbread at Cooper's is actually cracker-thin naan. It's akin to St. Louis-style pizza but slightly heartier with crispier edges that cook to a golden brown. The naan is slathered with the restaurant's creamy spinach chicken dip, laden with garlic and hunks of pulled chicken. It's then topped with molten Provel cheese, making it a decadent gooey treat. Pair it with a cold pint on the pub's river-facing patio for some of the best pizza St. Charles County has to offer.
