Romine's in St. Louis

Monday 11/27/2006--After nearly 75 years in business, Romine's, a chicken-lover's institution on St. Louis' north side, has closed down. But in November 2006 the recipe lived on at Malone's Grill and Pub in St. Peters, also owned by Steve Schafermeyer. The advertised special? Romine's fried chicken. Post-Dispatch photo 

In business for 75 years, customers flocked to Romine's, famous for its fried chicken. When the restaurant closed in 2006, the owners cited rising crime in the area in the 9000 block of Riverview Drive and declining dinner sales.

But the fried chicken lived on - it got added to the menu at the Malone's Grill and Pub in St. Peters.
