“Hodges is back, food better than ever”
Review of O T Hodge Chile Parlor - CLOSED

O T Hodge Chile Parlor
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed January 18, 2006

Having been a longtime downtown O.T. Hodge customer, I was leery of this suburban location, but visited it last week.

It certainly is not the old place - no yelling, no profanity, no raucous laughter. But the food was better than ever. I have been there three times now. The burgers are some of the best in St. Louis. The portions of chile are larger than before, and served piping hot. The breakfast is wonderful, with biscuits and gravy, a breakfast slinger, beautifully done french toast and waffles. The fries are cooked special for each order. The omelets are finished in an overhead broiler to prevent drying them out.

This is a full service restaurant. They use both waiters and waitresses, in uniforms. My service was prompt and friendly.

For a little diner, this is really a good place, even better than the Hodges of old. I would recommend it, and especially recommend breakfast.

O.T. Hodge is open again and is a good as ever in Florissant, North St Louis County, right off highway 70
at 250 S. Forissant road. Since 1904 this place has been mixing chile. Joe the owner and short order cook is a master, who can crisp a dog before adding the chile and put the eggs under the broiler just before adding them to the signiture slinger. The slinger was created a hodge, two beef patties and hashbrowns topped by two eggs and covered with the best chile.
