the breakfast is very good and tasty, but the rest of the day should be eaten somewhere else other than at UNCLE BILLS

Love to think of the next occasion to go back for more delicious pancakes. Other menu items are just as delicious.

I honestly will not eat here again. I have been 3 times. The first experience was ok, second was terrible and I gave it a third try thinking maybe I just caught them on a bad day. The server Lee is very rude and the service is slow. I generally trip 20 - 30 %, rarely do I ever not... More

It's a St. Louis tradition. They are open all day and, famous for their pancakes, will serve you breakfast the whole time - which I really like. Their daily specials are usually very good and the fried chicken always is. The wait times are often very long and the service varies quite a lot, from gruff to exceedingly familiar. The... More

The place was packed on a Tuesday morning. Seated promptly and service was quick. Ordered steak and eggs. The steak was cooked to order but not a great cut of beef. A very generous portion of hash browns with two eggs and pancakes was around $12.00 . The decor was a little worn and could use an update.

Service was fast and friendly, food was good. It was our first time here and I was thinking more like a Shoney's but the menu is more similar to a Waffle House, large breakfast selection with just a few lunch and dinner choices. Prices were fair. Restrooms were not very clean and the restaurant is dated but the food is... More

The breakfast is really delicious and more than ample. The restaurant is a favorite of my family, young and old. ( I cannot rate their lunch or dinner.)

I titled my review "nostalgic" because the decor is right out of days gone by. As in: I wonder when was the last time they changed the carpeting, painted, reupholstered etc. The place is dingy to say the least. That said, the breakfast food is very good. There is nothing fancy about it, however. A big plus is that Uncle... More
