Stopped here for vacation breakfast. This place is great. Another vintage midwest diner in St. Louis. The place looks like it hasn't been updated for years. Has vintage arcade game. Nothing wrong with the food, serves breakfast and hamburgers at all hours. Very cool place, worth a visit just to say you have been there once.

This is the most authentic Americana diner probably in all of the Midwest - the perfect first stop for anyone passing through the gateway to the west! The entire staff has timeless character - they are incredibly friendly, hard working, and they know how to make breakfast! Fast and delicious. Eat-Rite Diner is a main attraction for me when I'm...

This place will definitely take you back to the good ol' days. While it is not exactly the greatest quality of food, the experience alone is worth it!

Found this little place and it is amazing. It only has 14 seats and a very basic menu. About as Divey as you can get but still be clean. Family owned and operated for a long time it's like a St Louis staple. Surprisingly it has it's own parking lot. My son and I both had pancakes and eggs with... More

Great diner and service. Perfect hole in the wall with local flavor. Kids had a blast. Fun times. Fun start to our day in the city.

Crappy weird 50s diner where a cook with very few teeth that was hard to understand and a white chefs hat whipped together a dozen cheese burgers with onions in under 8 minutes. It is worth the visit just for the ambience as while the burgers ended up tiny ( 6 for $6.60 or 7.50 with cheese) they were a... More

My "Very Good" rating means this is a very good hole-in-the-wall 'burger and chili joint not that it's a very good place to impress your in-laws or business clients. As it's been doing since the 1930s, this place feeds the hungry good food for a good price. For a real treat (or challenge) try the signature Zinger, an all-in-one meal... More

This was a great little divey diner to visit. The place is tiny. I believe there are 9 seats around the counter, and that's it. The 2 ladies working, really worked! They do it all! MY hubby and I had read about this place, and had to try it out. It was exactly what we were hoping for! A great... More

We stopped at this diner upon the recommendation of a friend while in St. Louis for a Cardinals game. We should have known when we saw the outside of the building that it was not a suitable dining establishment, but for some reason we went in anyway. Diner is extremely small with limited seating. There were no restrooms. Food was... More

Small little authentic place to have a cheesy cheeseburger and some fries. Not far from bush stadium and pretty cheap
