Four of us had breakfast today.. a holiday. Place was crowded, but we were seated quickly, served quickly. Waitress was terrific. My son and I had "skillets," a dish when properly prepared is a delicious meal. Not so here. No skillet was involved, just a jumbled mix of stuff on a plate topped with a couple of eggs. A really...

Uncle Bill's started out as a pancake house and it still offers many breakfast items, hearty in size and flavor. For other types of meals, the food is quite ordinary. I have always had pleasant servers, but on weekends there is often a long wait for a table for breakfast or lunch. The decor is a bit dark and tired.... More

Stopped by uncle bills for something different. Compared to a Denny's, average breakfast place. Pancakes were ok. They pushed the fried chicken as very good so my wife got it and it was average at best, canned green beans and mashed potatoes rounded out the meal with a soggy biscuit. Once and done.

To start, the line is out the door on Sunday mornings, but it's worth the wait. Patrons have been going there for years and you can always see multigenerational families eating breakfast on Sundays. The coffee keeps coming so it's always hot, fresh and tasty. The breakfast menu is diverse and they accommodate dietary needs or wants. The prices are... More

We’ve been going to Uncle Bill’s for about 40 years. First the St. Louis location then then the Ballwin location after us having moved to the county. We hadn’t visited Uncle Bill’s for about 2 years so decided to go there for breakfast this morning. Up until today the breakfasts have always been top quality even though the wait staff... More

This is our go-to breakfast spot, at least once or twice a month. Very efficient staff. There may be a line, but they really turn over tables quickly. They never try to rush you out, but they do get the tables cleaned for the next group quickly.........We have never had a bad breakfast there. A lot of the servers have... More

The food is good starting with breakfast, served anytime. Lunch and dinner are also good. The fried chicken and fried pork chops are excellent. The prices are great! Most people who complain about being treated poorly are typical whiners. If you don't like your table, ask for another one and move for Pete's sake. If your waitress is not taking... More

We alway try everything once. Typical old school diner. Decor needs updating. Server was nice and took our order in a timely manor. Menu was geared towards the breakfast crowd. I would not eat lunch or dinner here limited choices. Overall it was okay. Will not go back.

My wife and daughter went there 8/8 for afternoon lunch/ breakfast. They asked for a booth but was told none available (even though my wife saw a few open). They were seated in the back section. While waiting my wife thought she felt something wet hit her head. She felt a splash of water hit her again. She looked at... More
