It really is "The Square Beyond Compare"

I normally don't do food reviews but I just finished eating dinner, Imo's pizza, & thought I'd give it a try since it's a local favorite.  In case you were wondering, Imo is pronounced ee-mow, & it's the name of the restaurant's founder. 

Imo's has been my favorite pizza for many, many years.  I have always enjoyed the crispy, thin crust pizza & no one else's compares (except for maybe Cecil Whitaker's pizza, another local pizza chain).  I've tried Pizza Hut's, Domino's, & Little Caesar's.  All are inferior. 

Imo's uses fresh, fine quality ingredients.  They have a signature, tangy sauce, & they use Provel cheese, which sticks to the roof of your mouth when you eat it.  I don't usually go for too many veggies on my pizza, just mushrooms.  Other places use dried up, shrivelled mushrooms but Imo's are big & fresh.  They use real bacon slices, crisped to perfection.  Their sausage & pepperoni are also very good. 

They also have some delicious pasta dishes, sandwiches, & salads.  Their garlic cheese bread is sooo good.  I also have to add that they have the best Ranch dressing I've ever tasted & it's low fat!    I wish they'd sell it in stores, like they do their Provel cheese. 

If you're ever in the St. Louis area & are in the mood for pizza, look up Imo's & give it a try.  They have several locations throughout the St. Louis area in Missouri & Illinois.  They offer dine-in, carry-out, & delivery services.  I also see, on their website, that they now ship their food to anywhere in the U.S. 

What did you think of this review?

This sounds amazing.  Thanks for sharing!  I had never heard of Provel cheese before, so I wikipedia'ed it and learned that it's mostly a St. Louis thing.  I'm jealous!

Hi Jamie: I just had to comment on this, as I too am a big fan of Imo's. I live in St. Louis and lived on Imo's Pizza when I was in college. When I moved to Los Angeles everyone bragged about how good the pizza was there, (I called it new wave), but it never could hold a candle to Imo's. I haven't had it in awhile, but you certainly roused my appetite! Their ingredients are truly outstanding and I love that thin crust. Very nice review of a destination restaurant in and around St. Louis. Thanks!
