Don't be scared of the outside appearance. The building needs some TLC. The food and atmosphere is wonderful. The one employee takes your order, makes your food and delivers it. You can't go wrong here. Try them out.

When traveling the Midwest by car, we enjoy seeking out establishments along what is left of 'Route 66'. Often these places label themselves as such and play up their heritage. It's always fun to find one that is just doing what they've done for years- providing an affordable meal to the hungry traveler. Eat Rite Diner does just that. No... More

Set only blocks away from the Cardinals Stadium, Score. Situated along the former Route 66, she has fed many a hungry traveler, besides my group of pilgrims, Score. Eat-Rite proudly boasts a...

We had breakfast. Food was good and reasonably priced. Enjoyed watching the young man cook in front of us but didn't get his name. He and Cheryl the waitress were both very friendly.

This place has been here for quite some time. The waitress we had has been working there for decades. If you want simple, great, diner food, this is the place for you. Don't expect fancy. It is worth the stop. Friendly staff, good conversation, and great food.

Counter only diner, but the waitress and cook were friendly and the food was good. I'd go back next time we're staying downtown.
