The food here is average, and the menu is very simple: burgers, fries, basic breakfast, pies, shakes, ice cream. The portions are large, and the prices are really low (cash only). But this place is old-school in a way that you never really see any...More

This diner is a diamond in the rough. The food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. there are only about 25 seats, the wait is worth it.

Have lived in St. Louis a long time, but had never eaten here. I loved the atmosphere and the fact that you can make conversation with the employees behind the counter. We really enjoyed our food and will definitely go back. Pricing is great!

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-...More

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...More
