For the most part, Ferguson’s Pub (2925 Mt. Pleasant, 314-351-1466) is your typical South City corner bar, replete with the usual A-B signage, paneling, and saucy behind-the-bar staff. And it’s cheap. The price of beer isn’t going to break your wallet, with Bud on tap for a buck and Milwaukee’s Best drafts 15 cents less than that. Certainly, thriftiness is part of the clientele’s reason for being there.
But what’s a little different from the average place down the block is the menu of this Mt. Pleasant neighborhood tavern, which features some three dozen items. Things like hot wings ($4.25) and nachos with chili ($4.25) you’d certainly expect. But broccoli cheese poppers ($4.25)? Or a 16 oz. K.C. strip steak ($13.95)? A bit out of the ordinary. The combo bar-and-grill also offers roast beef sandwiches ($6.25), burgers ($1.60) and, yes, a brain sandwich ($4.75). The kitchen’s open seven days a week, shutting down at 9 p.m. The bar, obviously, stays open for a later last-call.
