Great Diner Food

Standard diner menu that is good food in a great atmosphere!! Food is not greasy at all as normally would be the case with diner food. Sausage, egg and cheese sandwich with homemade hash browns was phenomenal!! Cheeseburger and fries was also outstanding!!

I must say, do not judge this restaurant by the outside. The food was amazing, the staff were very friendly. The burger and fries were very good. The pie was also very good. I had fun playing the old gampling pinball game. The shakes were good and I was talked into the malt and it was amazing.

This is a great breakfast stop. An old school diner with like 12 total seats. Food is cooked as ordered. The Slinger is their signature item and a must have!!!

Ok I've been many times before a Cards game and for the first time tried the fried chicken. 4 pieces with two sides freshly made for only $7.40 so why not. Didn't come close to the burgers or slingers so I'd recommend sticking with them. Always remember to bring CASH. Small place has a very unique atmosphere to it.

Delicious quick food. If a small 10 seat counter only diner with no frills but hearty griddle food does not intimidate you this is your place. I grabbed breakfast at 1AM. Had the ripper- eggs, potatoes, and breakfast meat covered and smothered. The experience is something like a Tom Waites song. This ones in the rotation. Cash only ATM and... More

We were looking for a breakfast place and stumbled on this place via the internet. We took a cab from our hotel and were shocked when we got to the place. It is tiny! It sits in the very corner of a large parking lot across the street from the Nestle Purina building. We had one of our group check... More

We ate here before the Cardinals game and loved it!! The workers are all super nice. The food was made right in front of us and was delicious!! Only counter seating and not much of that. Worth the stop if you are near by

What a great surprise! A fantastic traditional diner offering good straightforward food. The ladies running it on the day of our visit had years of experience resulting in the best over easy eggs we enjoyed on our Route 66 trip. A must visit stop in St. Louis.

A bit of old time flavor in the midst of a large city. Friendly people and good food. An icon of route 66, it is a must stop for anyone passing by. The pie's are fantastic and the food and atmosphere and good conversation made it worthwhile.

This is a real-deal, corner diner. It is a historic piece of St. Louis. First, it is tiny. There is a counter that runs the length of the building, which means there aren't a ton of seats. The jukebox is great, and there is a pinball machine that looks about as old as the diner itself. The lady who prepared... More
