You may remember the show “Welcome to Sweetie Pie’s” on the Oprah television network. Yep, this is the place, the beginning of the chain.
Sweetie Pie’s is owned by Robbie Montgomery, who was one of the original Ikettes of the Ike and Tina Turner band. Pictures of Robbie and the band fill the walls, and yes, she’s just as gorgeous today as she was back in the day.
Remember that Ike and Tina were from St. Louis and are listed on the St. Louis Walk of Fame.
But old-school soul food, served with love, is what this place is all about.
Fried chicken, okra, corn bread, smothered pork chops and real mashed potatoes fill the buffet here.
The mac & cheese and the peach cobbler are the BEST!
