Local bands often take the stage. The walls are nearly camouflaged by framed band posters, music paraphernalia and folk art. On an episode of “STL Live”, Kunz recalls when Guy Fieri filmed an episode of his show “Diners, Drive-ins and Dives” at Highway 61, during which Fieri remarked on the decor and said, “It looks like your garage exploded in here.” Kunz does not contest the observation: “My wife said, ‘Get rid of this junk, or open a restaurant,’” he recounts. Kuntz recommends menu favorites like the Cajasian Potstickers—homemade dumplings packed with Andouille sausage, vegetables and Sambal chili sauce, then pan-seared and served with Creole s o y d i p p i n g s a u c e . “ I t ’s g o t a l i t t l e h e a t t o it,” he says.
