The Quirkiest Restaurant In St. Louis That’s Impossible Not To Love
Most St. Louisans have enjoyed a Fitz’s Root Beer and many of us have stopped by their restaurant factory for an amazingly huge float, but if you are one of the few who haven’t been by this quirky, super cool eatery – today is the day! If you already love Fitz’s, read on for a mouthwatering look at those jumbo ice cream floats.
Fitz's is a soda factory, full service restaurant, and incredible ice cream shop all in one place!
Fitz's opened in 1993 in the Delmar Loop. They wanted to create a quality root beer and became the first soda microbrewery in America.
You can watch the magic of the bottling process from any seat in the restaurant.
The soda bottling line can create a bottle of soda every second!
Fitz's Root Beer is created from a recipe sold in St. Louis in the 1940s. They use the finest spices and natural pure cane sugar to create their iconic root beer.
The soda bottling line uses a completely refurbished 1940s system to keep the quality of the original recipe.
Fitz's also creates a full line of specialty sodas and (of course) the best root beer anywhere.
The ice cream floats here are huge!
True to their size, floats here have names like the "Mighty Mocha" and the "Big Muddy."
The "Peanut Butter Cup" is a favorite here.
This huge ice cream float starts with cream soda and is topped over the brim with chocolate ice cream, creamy peanut butter, and finished with whipped topping and chocolate sprinkles.
You'll find great food here too....
With house favorites like the Porgy and Beef....
It's the Bottlers burger topped with smoked pulled pork, Fitz's Root Beer BBQ sauce, and finished with crispy onion straws. Yummy!
If you crave a kick to your drink options, Fitz's has you covered with a full bar and local microbreweries on tap.
Fitz's, true to their motto of "If it wasn't better, we wouldn't bother," has not just given St. Louis a premier soda company and one-of-a-kind restaurant, but a true American success story.
Fitz's is located at: 6605 Delmar Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63130
