Eat-Rite Diner

This summer, we’ve seen where Route 66 began in Chicago and visited the new Route 66 exhibit at the Missouri History Museum (and stopped at Ted Drewes, but that’s hardly unusual for us!). Today we decided to visit another historic Route 66 attraction in St. Louis: the Eat-Rite Diner.



It’s a tiny little building on Chouteau, which we know gets really busy at mealtimes, having failed to stop there earlier this summer because it was so crowded. The burgers were fine…not particularly special (although the buns were excellent), but it was an experience, not a meal, for us…and it only took us 15 years of living in St. Louis to finally say we’ve been there!
