Steve's Hot Dogs is growing

I'm Steve Ewing. I'm a local musician, a business owner, a Dad. Growing up in St. Louis, I've been on the receiving end of such great energy from the fans of my music and it's thanks to their support that I was able to open Steve's Hot Dogs on the Hill back in 2011. 

Today, Steve's on the Hill is thriving. The Hill neighborhood and all of our customers have been so supportive of everything we've done, but in our current location, we're limited to a very small kitchen and lunchtime-only hours, so we want to expand to a second location in Tower Grove East. Our hope is that with a second location, we'll be able to create an experience for the whole family - with after-school hours for family dinners and later night hours for people hanging with their friends over at the new Tick Tock Bar. 

We are hoping that the fans of Steve's on the Hill will help back us in this new venture & help us bring something great to the Tower Grove East neighborhood.

Here's more on why we chose crowdfunding & why we believe in this project.

What We Need & What You Get

Your funds will go to:

  • Painting the walls
  • General repairs
  • New kitchen equipment
  • Tables and chairs
  • New flooring
  • If we exceed our goal by enough, we will add a smokehouse, a bike rack and a water purification system at the new site!

For more on our plan, CLICK HERE.

**Every donor gets their name on the wall in our new location as one of our original backers & the perks listed below!**

Your Impact

  • Help us bring something amazing to the Tower Grove East neighborhood.
  • Support a local small business. 
  • Help us open during the summer months while the park is still busy and we have an opportunity to attract people nearby to a new business.
  • If we exceed our goal, we plan to build a smokehouse, add a bike rack and install a water purification system at the new restaurant!
