It's been a few yrs since we've been to Crown----and it's still GREAT. Best BLT around---bar none. Make sure you get a dessert and some take home candy. You might find a line---try at mid afternoon---but its worth it!

Good ham and cheese sandwiches, chocolate milkshakes and candy. Extremely friendly staff. So glad we ventured off the normal path to find this gem.

This quaint restaurant is historic and delicious. I loved their chicken salad sandwich (only available on Thursdays) and my friend had the BLT with sooo much bacon. Yum, for both. We even saved room for a fabulous shake to take. The menu had so many...options that when I come back in a few weeks I’ll be exploring more of it. Go hungry and be ready to take some home for later.More

When you get there, if there are no tables, a line forms outside and they do a fine job of managing it. The menu is limited to sandwiches. We had a turkey, bacon and cheese sandwich. It was good. We also had a peach malt...to go, also good. They were very attentive to our wheelchair. I got a 1/4 lb. of chocolate turtles to go. They were good too. Iced tea was good.More

My first trip lived in Missouri my entire life. Took my 12 yr old grandson from Denver and 10 month grandson from here. It was a lot of bacon and a huge malt. A great adventure just for lunch.

My 13 y.o. son and I stopped in based on a local’s recommendation, and we couldn’t have been happier with our choice. There are generally lines at lunch time, but it was worth the wait. We enjoyed our sandwiches and shared a milkshake, which was...handmade and very filling. We bought a chocolates and rick candy to go and enjoyed them later. It felt like we stepped back in time. Definitely worth checking out if you are in STL.More

Sandwiches are definitely fulfilling. Shakes are handmade. Inside is like travelling back to 50's or 60's. A place to visit for sure.

Old-fashioned ice cream shop. All the staff were extremely friendly. Homemade ice cream, 14% milk fat. Classic Sundays with great sauces, fresh crispy nuts and excellent fruit. The sandwiches we saw looked amazing at BLT with probably a half pound of crispy bacon. We will...definitely be back.More

Wonderful service and atmosphere. Great ice cream! Delicious malts. We came in in the late afternoon, so there was no wait. Great place to take a child and make a memory. Certainly a St. Louis treasure and one that a person should experience when visiting...St. Louis!More

She had the BLT heart attack I had the Turkey melt. Both came with an insane amount of bacon. My turkey was deli style, piled and delicious. Her BLT was enormous and delicious. We had too much to do Ice cream, next time. We did...get some assorted chocolates, they have all been very good so far.More

A very nice local restaurant that offers sandwiches and hot dogs that will be familiar to most. The milkshakes are a must-have to accompany these delicious sandwiches. Homemade chocolate assortments are a great way to end the meal on a good note.

This was a fun experience with family. We had a 10 minute wait for a late lunch. We got the famous BLT and a Reuben and milkshakes. The BLT has half pound of bacon which was a little overwhelming. My suggestion-two people split a Reuben...( so so good ) and then split a malt/milkshake. It was enough for 2 people easy. Staff was nice even though they were busy. The atmosphere is fun.More

Good Food, great portions. Loved the 50’s soda shop vibe. The heart-stopping BLT is intimidating! I ordered the Turkey Bacon melt & had to box 1/2 for carry out. Recommend this eatery!

I just looked it up online. It’s the heart stopping BLT and it’s $10 dollars.

I always recommend getting their food to go unless you have lots of time and no other appointments.
