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

Diner food is something I'm only occasionally up for. However, this place does it really well! Better yet, they were genuinely welcoming and friendly. They took our order quickly and served it quickly. The prices were very reasonable, and Chili Mac's is walking distance from the Arch and the Old Courthouse. We're just visiting, and sort of stumbled across this... More

This is a true diner where the waitress just shouts out the foods to the fry cooks. There's not much seating, so it feels like the real deal. The food was really good. We had a BLT, chili cheese fries, a grilled ham and cheese, and hot dogs. All were good and very affordable. It's very close to the Arch... More

This place is awesome. Home cooked food prepared fresh right in front of you. The staff, while busy, is friendly and seems to actually like their customers! I didn't think chili on spaghetti would taste that great, but it does. Try it!

Stopped by for the chili and decided to get a burger and fries. The food was fantastic and the service was most pleasant. It's good to know that an ole school diner can still stay open and crank out great food ... I'll be back !!!

Nice clean restaurant with very friendly staff. Breakfast is simple, traditional and always good. Service right on time. If you frequent enough they know you by name. Most customers are regulars.

Ate breakfast here twice on my recent trip and will be going back if I ever make it to St. Louis again. The Steak and Eggs on the first day were very good and the steak had good seasoning, and it was under $12 with OJ. The French Toast the next day was a highlight of the trip. Servers were... More
