Loved every minute of this place. The ladies working there were an awesome team. They just worked so well together so that everything kept moving. The food is cooked to order and everyone in my family loved their food. It is not a large place and you might have to sit with people you don't know but we loved that!... More

A great find and alternative to a chain restaurant for breakfast. Nothing fancy, but cordial service with good coffee and food. Prices were extremely reasonable. Very convenient location. The way dining used to be.

We were a little short on time to make our scheduled ticket time for the Arch Tram so just popped into this diner for a quick lunch. We each got a burger with American fries and hubby also got a cup of chili to try it. Waitress said a commissary makes the chili especially for them but he thought it... More

We went here for breakfast before a noon ballgame. It was very good food. It is just a small diner, where the waitresses are friendly and busy. Very similar to a Waffle House atmostphere.

The place was pretty busy for a Thursday @ 9 am but we did get to sit at the counter. Food was pretty unique. Had the breakfast where they put chili on your eggs & potatoes. The waitstaff was very friendly and kind. You just need to be patient because they all do more than just wait tables.

When I walked through the door, I swear everything turned black & white. The waitresses and the cooks were sassy - in a good way, jokingly threatening the regulars. I'm sure back in the day they wore rollerblades -- I'm positively sure of it. The only thing missing was the bright red lipstick and sky-high bun hairstyles. I was expecting... More

Where can you grab breakfast/lunch quickly, cheaply and sit cheek to cheek with Cardinals and Cubs fans all getting along? This place! A classic diner menu leaning heavily on excellent Midwest chili...with your classic diner server who doesn't write down your order, gets it right and keeps beverages filled. Counters and tables stay busy but orderly. The three sisters who... More

We tried this diner on the recommendation of our hotel staff member. It was one block down from the hotel, so we walked. So convenient to get to. It is such a classic diner down to the red vinyl stools at the bar and chrome chairs. The food is SO good too! You must try the french toast! It has... More
