The watermelon stand had wood picnic benches where you could sit & eat your slices, now there's a place that BBQ's all the time (a bar?) across the street from that NOW is a QT station, Bailey Farm Dairy is now Grbic, a Bosnian restaurant

I remember Helen's Pizzeria very well! My mom worked there, I worked there, my sister- we knew the families very well. My mom started working at the original on Grand (across from the fire station, which was a Taco Bell last I knew), then Helen moved it to Hampton and Southwest, which where I worked for some time. I remember all thea different Lanasa's and Teal's that worked there. As for having another ORIGINAL Helen's, that probably won't happen as Helen died some years ago.

Sad news for ALL the hopefuls out here, that was some good GOOD pizza, HELEN, Rest In Peace & God Bless you for making MANY MANY people extremely HAPPY with the most memorable pizza we've ever eaten.

I remember Helens as well. I grew up in South St. Louis.. They had several locations.. One on Grand then moved to chippewa and later in my youth moved over on South Broadway not too far from the new casino.. Digregorio used to supply their pizza supplies. I miss that corn meal pizza. Took a trip to Chicago and found a similar pizza there. Apparently, Helen's recipe originated from that one. Can't remeber the name.

St Louis in general, has the best pizza. I'm not sure I remember Helen's...There was a Frank and Helen's...Maybe Frank died? As far as chains go, even Imo's pizza is great...But the best ever was at a place called Sunset 44, which has been out of business for years, but not due to the pizza. In Scottsdale, luckily there's a place called Frashers which had authentic St Louis style pizza. Just had some the other night...
Sunset 44 isn't closed. It just moved into Kirkwood, a couple miles north of the old location at Lindbergh/Watson.

Pizza a go-go is still around, also. They relocated to 6703 Scanlan Ave, a few blocks from 44/Jamieson.

I remember Helens Pizza. Elicia Pizza reminds me alot of Helens Pizza.
I grew up on both, and I can tell you Elicia does not come close to Helens... Helens you could fold it up, almost roll it up and the grease used to flow down your fingers.....DAMN that was good pizza....

Helen's on Grand and Potomic had the best pizza! Whenever I would tell my dad that I had pizza from any other pizza place, he would always ask me: "Was it as good as Helen's?". My answer to him was always "No!". If he asked me today (I'm now in my sixties) I would still say the same about all the pizza I've had since!

Back in the early thru mid 60s I lived next door to Helen's S. Grand location in the 2 story brick house across from the firehouse. There was some kind of car operation behind our house owned by a woman named Wilma and her huband. I remember Helen and a man named Otis. My grandma Jo and/or my step grandpa Fred used to take me over there for a soda when they were babysitting me. I always looked forward to Fridays because that was payday for both my parents and that often meant going to Helen's for sausauge pizza. I loved it. I'm sorry to hear she has passed. She was such a nice lady, may she rest in peace. If any of u who worked there know how to make that pizza I would love to have the reciepe as long as it won't compromise any kind of confidence or if the family is planning to sell it or open up a new place. If they do sell it or open up a new place PLEASE let me know. Some of my best and yearlist childhood memories are of eating pizza at Helen's. It's been at least 25 years since I've had a slice of that wonderful pizza and nothing else even comes close. It will always be my favorite.
