Gus' Pretzel Shop
Gus’ Pretzel Shop is located in the Benton Park neighborhood on St. Louis’s south side, in the shadows of the world-famous Anheuser-Busch Brewery. A family-owned business that has been using the same recipe and method of making pretzels, including twisting each pretzel by hand, since the business started in 1920. Visitors are able to view the entire pretzel-production process through the viewing area at various times throughout the day and takeout orders are quickly filled at the retail counter. Through the years, Gus’ has become a St. Louis destination for both locals and visitors, still produce the traditional German twisted pretzel, but the pretzel stick has become the preference of our customers. The menu has expanded and includes bratwursts, salsiccias and hot dogs wrapped in pretzel dough, custom-ordered party pretzels, and specialty dips and mustard.
