Diner food is something I'm only occasionally up for. However, this place does it really well! Better yet, they were genuinely welcoming and friendly. They took our order quickly and served it quickly. The prices were very reasonable, and Chili Mac's is walking distance from the Arch and the Old Courthouse. We're just visiting, and sort of stumbled across this... More

This is a true diner where the waitress just shouts out the foods to the fry cooks. There's not much seating, so it feels like the real deal. The food was really good. We had a BLT, chili cheese fries, a grilled ham and cheese, and hot dogs. All were good and very affordable. It's very close to the Arch... More

This place is awesome. Home cooked food prepared fresh right in front of you. The staff, while busy, is friendly and seems to actually like their customers! I didn't think chili on spaghetti would taste that great, but it does. Try it!

Stopped by for the chili and decided to get a burger and fries. The food was fantastic and the service was most pleasant. It's good to know that an ole school diner can still stay open and crank out great food ... I'll be back !!!

Nice clean restaurant with very friendly staff. Breakfast is simple, traditional and always good. Service right on time. If you frequent enough they know you by name. Most customers are regulars.

Ate breakfast here twice on my recent trip and will be going back if I ever make it to St. Louis again. The Steak and Eggs on the first day were very good and the steak had good seasoning, and it was under $12 with OJ. The French Toast the next day was a highlight of the trip. Servers were... More

We eat breakfast here every time we come to St. Louis. Very close to Busch Stadium and downtown hotels. Like an old-time diner wt counter service. Food is GREAT! Good place for kids too.

Came up to run the Rock & Roll 1/2 Marathon. Ate here on our last morning before heading to the Airport. Went here based on Trip Advisor reviews. The place is like an old style dinner with a simple breakfast menu. Nothing great, just basic food but at a very reasonable price with good old fashioned service

Always go here for breakfast when in town. Feels like going back in time. The sisters that own this place do a wonderful job of taking care of customers, and they're very friendly. The eggs, bacon, grits, home fries, and toast are hard to beat-especially for the price. Wash it all down with fresh hot coffee, and enjoy the rest... More

Ambling along Pinelake Street early morning looking for a bite to eat and a parking attendant recommends this quaint diner so what do I have to lose? History, delicious food and friendly service made for a wonderful experience. Definitely recommend
