Top 10 Diners in St. Louis, Missouri, Determined by Consumer Online Reviews

Top 10 Diners in St. Louis, MO Serving Comfort Food

St. Louis, MO (STL.News) – While most consumers love fine dining, still some appreciate the best diners that offers comfort food, not award-winning cuisines.  St. Louis is full of great award-winning restaurants, but the everyday diner type of restaurants should not be overlooked.  Some of these establishments have been in business for years offering comfort food on a daily basis.  While the atmosphere may not compare to an award-winning Italian restaurant, most consumers do not care if the quality of comfort food satisfy their desire for “comfort”.

What defines a diner?  Typically, diners offer a wide choice of foods, most American type cuisine and a casual atmosphere with booths and a counter.  Diners date back to 1872 and have played a significant role in American culture.

Comfort food may include everything from Biscuits and Gravy to meat loaf.  One thing you can be certain of is that these restaurants are about nothing but quality of food and service.  Decor might not meet the standards of many, but for some, like me, that doesn’t matter.

As fewer consumers eat at home, the need for comfort food, especially for older consumers appear to be rising.  My favorite diner meal is breakfast.  It might be considered to be health food, but it is definitely “comfort food” reminding me of my grandmother and mother’s cooking.  Something that was taken for granted.

As always our reviews and ratings are based on consumer comments and ratings.  Our opinion does not count.  These establishments did not pay for their rankings.  These establishments was not aware of our intent to publish the article.

There are many diners in the St. Louis region that deserve your attention.  The diners listed have satisfied enough customers for them to post online reviews to bring this attention to their establishments.

While Chili Mac’s Diner is rated #2, it has more reviews than Southwest Diner who is rated #1.  Both deserve consideration, but my point is not to overlook the number of reviews.  Don’t focus on just the rating because they are all 4 or 4.5 Stars.
