Great small town diner feel

Tried their breakfast and was not disappointed. The ladies there are very sweet and funny. I had the bacon egg and cheese sandwich with a side of biscuits and gravy. Yummy!! Will become my go-to breakfast joint in the area.

Was in town for conferance and found this diner. Took a chance and it was great. They made you feel like home. Good conversation, good service and good food. Had to come for breakfast on last morning in town.

This place serves classic, stick-to-your-ribs, American food. It's a turn and burn diner. The food is hot, heavy, and cheap. The kind of place where you want to see old waitresses who have been there forever, give you a little (good-natured) attitude and treat you right - and it delivers. You don't go here for quinoa, or kale. Please. You... More

We were looking for a place to eat and ran into this place. The menu was simple, the food was awesome and the price was right. Try the spaghetti with two eggs smothered in chili. I know, who would have those items would taste so good together. It does! We hope to go back to St Louis soon and will... More

Slinger...yummy. Double cheeseburger, with American fries topped with chili. Hit the spot. Waitresses are on spot and fun! We will be back!

I decided on my recent trip to St Louis I was not having anything we have in England. I had this place marked down before I set off and it was close to the hotel I was staying in so I popped in for lunch one day. As with everywhere, the staff were very friendly and the place was a... More

Forget yuppie at this place. It's Wisconsin in the middle of St. Louis. This is the kind of dive, hole in the wall I really love. The food is just basic and good. It's as much the dive atmosphere as it is the food which was sufficiently good. We tried both the chili eggs and French toast which were satisfying.... More

I spent six months hunting for a job at an out-placement agency in St. Louis. Big Ed' made the time fly. It is a tiny venue with long lines at lunch time. You are as likely to find a Missouri politician, policeman or frustrated job seeker consoling there souls in chilli-drenched happiness. The slinger is a must have meal in... More
