Blueberry Hill in St. Louis

Blueberry Hill is a restaurant and music club located in the Delmar Loop neighborhood in University City, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. Legendary performer and rock'n'roll icon Chuck Berry performs there every third Wednesday of each month, downstairs in the Duck Room.

The restaurant is considered a St. Louis landmark,[1] drawing tourists and locals during the day, and then becoming a popular hangout for university students in the evening, mostly from nearby Washington University. The restaurant is famous for its decor, its cheeseburgers, its darts room.[2] It is frequently mentioned by St. Louis-based announcer Bob Costas.

Joe Edwards and Linda Edwards opened Blueberry Hill on September 8, 1972. Since opening, the restaurant has expanded into the adjacent spaces on the east and the west, and it now occupies an entire block of Delmar Boulevard.

Outside the restaurant is the St. Louis Walk of Fame, the brainchild of Joe Edwards. The Walk lines the sidewalks on both sides of Delmar, and is made up of bronze stars and informative biographical plaques honoring individuals from the St. Louis area who have made major national contributions to US cultural heritage.
