Fabulous old time diner that serves yummy milkshakes and the best BLT in St. Louis. They sell "fancy" candy at the front counter too so beware--hard to pass up. People are nice and friendly. Highly recommend!

A St. Louis gem. Shakes are epic. Have never had any other sandwich than the BLT. (No reason to try anything else.) Awesome service. Fantastic candy souvenirs.
