My wife like the roast beef well done and they prepared it like requested. It was a good lunch. The service was very good. We... More

I've been eating at Lion's Choice since the first location opened near my home in Ballwin when I was 6 years old... it's REAL RoastBeef... prepared exactly as it should be and seasoned perfectly... and they have my favorite fries on the planet. Eat here once and you'll never touch Arby's again.

Whoever hasn't tried a Lions Choice in St. Louis is just plain missing out. A landmark Restaraunt that serves REAL roast beef sandwiches that are tender and seasoned to perfection. The horsey sauce is my fav - even dip my fries in the stuff. Other assorted sauces are hit with the kids. Prices are good considering you are getting real... More

The overall quality of the sandwiches at Lion's Choice is hard to beat. Everything comes out hot and freshly carved. The au jus is really good, the toasted bun sets the sandwich off. the French fries are perfect. The ice cream for dessert is the bomb.

Good sandwich and fries, especially if you enjoy seasoning with cheese. Drinks average like most fast food facilities.

Just go and get a dipped mini cone for .39 and you will be happy the rest of the day! Or for only .25 you can get a not dipped cone. Fun!

Visited St. Louis this weekend. Decided to try Lion's Choice ( LC) which I hadn't had gone to for several years. Found one located on Manchester Rd. in Des Peres. Restaurant was clean. Problem was the food and prices. They expanded their menu to now include giant size. But it is pricy for what you get. I went with mid... More

Lions choice always has great roast beef although this visit it seemed they were a bit light on the amount of meat given.

Have been going to Lions Choice for years. Best roast beef in town. The Des Peres location has friendly staff and fast service.

Local chain of shaved roast beef restaurants is just fantastic. Owners: bring back the rye rolls you used to carry; the wheat is only a fair substitute! And if you have young kids in tow, they offer (regular size and) tiny ice cream cones for dessert, and you can get them dipped in chocolate, too!
