Chain restaurants offer diners a guaranteed chance to have a delicious meal, but some of the best meals can be found at hidden gems and hole-in-the-wall restaurants that are just waiting to be discovered.
Cheapism looked at reviews on Yelp and TripAdvisor as well as rankings from food writers to compile a list of the best hole-in-the-wall diner in each state. According to the site, "There are a ton of great local joints serving cheap, tasty eats, but if you're not careful, you might drive right past them."
So which Missouri restaurant was named the best hole-in-the-wall diner in the state?
This St. Louis diner is a favorite for many who stop by for its traditional diner cuisine. Cheapism suggests ordering the slinger, a "breakfast concoction of meat (usually sausage), eggs, hash browns, chili, cheese, and onions."
Here's what Cheapism had to say:
"This old-school, greasy diner food — and customers, many who've been regulars for years, love it. This iconic diner is located in Gateway City's historic Clayton-Tamm neighborhood. Diners who have a taste for adventure after their meal can head north to 1,300-acre Forest Park, which is home to the St. Louis Zoo as well as the city's Art Museum."
