German Spoken Here

Don't be fooled by the name. Pepino's on 14th Street may very well be St. Louis' only German pizza joint. Judging by the women behind the counter, it's a three-generational operation. Orders are often relayed back to the kitchen in German. Another unique aspect of the restaurant are the prices. For $4.50 you can get two slices of sausage or pepperoni pizza and a small soda. For diners who choose to eat at the restaurant the the square slices are served on paper plates. Orders to go are wrapped in aluminum foil. Apparently, Pepino's doesn't believe in over-packaging its food.
