The Shack in Frontenac, MO – Breakfast & Lunch

FRONTENAC, MO/August 19, 2017 (STLRestaurant.News) The Shack in Frontenac dazzles the pallet with intriguing dishes spiced with humor.  Plan on arriving a little early and before the stomach growling so you can enjoy scanning the menu where you’ll find amusing names such as the Witness Protection™omelet (avocado, mozzarella & tomato); the Gringo Killer™ Skillet (chorizo, onion, bell peppers, green chili salsa & Shack cheese); or the If Tim & Biebs Went to Prison Skillet (fried chicken breast on a biscuit smothered in gravy, sharp cheddar cheese & green onions) and Plates such as Ma…The Meatloaf (bacon-wrapped meatloaf stuffed with onions & peppers served over crispy hash browns & topped with homemade gravy and two sunny side eggs), or the Love Me Now Hate Me Later™ (breakfast burrito stuffed with scrambled eggs, tater tots, crushed Fritos & cheddar cheese nestled on a bed of chili smothered with Shack cheese and topped with green onion); or the Why The French Hate Us™ (Toasted Croissant stuffed with two sausage links, scrambled eggs, covered in Shack gravy and cheddar cheese); or the Do It Yourself Meg Ryan; or the Up The River Without a Paddle (Smoked salmon, thick cut bacon, lettuce, tomato & peppercorn aioli on a brioche bun); or the Cease & Desist (1/4 seared double stack burger, shredded lettuce, peppercorn aioli, bacon jam, white cheddar, tomato and red onion); or the Ta-Ta Tacos* (beer-battered panko-breaded tilapia, cabbage, salsa fresca, queso blanco, and avocado spread; and many more. * – Note: For each taco order sold, one dollar is donated to the TaTa Sisterhood organization, which provides financial and motivational support for women battling triple negative breast cancer.

There’s plenty of sweet love at the Shack Griddle with a variety of Belgian Waffles, Pancakes such as The King Lives (chocolate chips, bacon, banana & peanut butter drizzle); and French Toast Brioche such as the Merica (strawberries, blueberries, marscapoe honey glaze topped with whipped cream and powered sugar).

If you like your sandwiches hard pressed, you might enjoy a Panini, which they have several such as the Rubin, or Turkey Foccaia, and the Wicked Good Turkey to name a few.  Sides include Roasted Brussels Sprouts, Sweet Pot Tots, Fries, Homemade Chips, and more.

The Shack salads are huge and big enough for sharing.  Among their savory dressings, their white balsamic vinaigrette stands out and is absolutely fabulous.  For those sustaining healthier habits there are options such as egg white omelets, skillets, Avocado Focaccia, Granola & Fruit Parfaits, Fresh Fruit and more.

The Shack also specializes in Gluten Free cuisine with dedicated skillets and fryers when preparing all gluten free meals. The GF Menu includes omelets, skillets, pancakes (YES pancakes), chicken Strips & Buffalo chicken (breaded in-house with wheat free flour); a variety of Sammies served on gluten-free buns such as the S.O.B (chicken, bacon, tomato, jalapenos, avocado spread and pepper jack cheese), a Philly, and the Caprese to name a few. And don’t forget the yummy smoothies (which are non-fat and gluten free) such as “UR My Boy Blue (blueberry), Billy Bob’s Straw (strawberry) and Gone ‘Biebs” (banana).

As you’ll note during your visit, The Shack’s witty theme is tied into every aspect of the dining experience. The hipster barn vibe with re-purposed wood throughout, most of which are sharpie decorated with colorful autographs by happy patrons enhances the fun mood for enjoying breakfast or lunch with family, friends, colleagues, a date or perhaps a morning cocktail with a quick bite at the bar. Will that be a mimosa with your breakfast? Or how about one of these clever concoctions: Good Mooning (Blue moon, Amsterdam Peach, St. Germain, cranberry & orange juice) or a Meaty Mary (Zing Zang Tomato juice, Cucumber Vodka, Shack-seasoned rim bacon, cheese, that comes with a Beef Jerky Straw), or perhaps one of the Shack’s Cereal Killer Boozie Shakes such as: I Do What I Want (Coco puffs, Yogurt, Bailey’s & Frangelico), or Not That There’s Anything Wrong with That (Yogurt, Loopy Vodka, Froot Loops, strawberries & blueberries), and others to kick up the party.

The Shack is managed by the OG Hospitality Group (which also manages The Corner Pub and Grill, and the award wining 2011 Restaurant of the year, The Tavern Kitchen and Bar)

Shack – Breakfast & Lunch

The Shack – Breakfast & Lunch

ST. LOUIS, MO: (STLRestaurant.News) – To some, breakfast is the most important meal of the day.  It symbolizes waking up, getting the day started and spending time with loved ones.  At Shack, it is all that and then some!  Looking through the Shack menu, one’s mouth is guaranteed to water while his heart laughs at the witty, one-of-a-kind menu selections.  Tim Kimmell, kitchen manager at the Valley Park location, said the item names seem to be a big hit among customers.  “One of the reasons we stand out to guests is because of the comical names we use to introduce our dishes,” Kimmell said, referring to item names like The Kitchen Sink, Smoke ‘Em if You Got ‘Em and Make a Grown Man Cry.  “Not only are our dishes’ names funny, but they taste great!”  Shack’s breakfast menu has something for everyone with its wide selection ranging from omelets to pancakes to skillets to healthy choices (some of which are gluten free, depending on location).  A crowd favorite, Gringo Killer, is a two-egg skillet with chorizo, onions, bell peppers, green chili salsa and special SHACK cheese, all served with hash browns.  For those with more of a sweet tooth, Because We Can E-Z, another crowd favorite, treats customers to a scrumptious french toast sandwich stuffed full of eggs, sausage and bacon, all served with hash browns.  But the fun doesn’t stop there.  Shack also offers a variety of tasty smoothies, cereal shakes, adult swim beverages and boozy shakes, some of which are even fat free and gluten free.

Shack also offers lunch but is most well-known for its succulent breakfast menu.  In fact, Shack has been recognized repeatedly for its mouth-watering menu. St. Louis Post Dispatch GO!  Magazine named Shack #1 for breakfast for 2016; STL Magazine named Shack as “Best Breakfast in the County” for 2015; and Shack was also named “Best Restaurant of 2015” by STL Magazine, and these are just a few of the awards.  The Shack offers patrons two locations, one at 13645 Big Bend Rd., in Valley Park and another at 731 S. Lindbergh BLVD., in Frontenac.  Hours of operation vary by location, but more information can be found at http://www.shackstl.com/.
