(NECN: Josh Brogadir, St. Louis) - NECN has introduced you to Cardinals fans and their ballpark, but what's to eat and drink in St. Louis?

There's more to it than Budweiser and ribs.

In the STL, you won't find deep dish; here, the pizza is made with a thin crust.

They showed NECN how it's done at Cicero's in the Loop near Washington University, family owned since 1977.

The specialty of the house is the Super Pig - there is more meat on this baby than spins around on a spit at a barbecue in July.

Fans also stuffed their faces with the toasted ravioli, with veal, chicken and beef, deep fried and fantastic.

At the bar, Anheuser Busch gets all the love, but local brew Schlafly's is hoppy goodness.

Bartender Lou from the Lou poured a special edition IPA, in the name of research, of course.

Cardinals fan and Cicero's co-owner Trisha Jacobs wouldn't have it any other way.

Or would she?

"No, as a matter of fact we don't," she said with a laugh when asked if she served Bostonians. "Of course we serve Bostonians here."

There's plenty to eat around this ballpark as well - no steak tips, but hot dogs and brats.
