Riverfront Times' Description

"Eat Rite or Don't Eat At All." So it says on the coffee cups (and the souvenir T-shirts) at this no-frills 24-hour greasy spoon amid the industrial wasteland between downtown and Soulard. Folks come from miles around to fill up on the breakfast-and-burgers menu: bar-hoppers and club kids finally coming down from their late-night-into-early-morning highs; factory workers and blue-collars getting off graveyard shifts; curious newcomers who've heard about the bizarro vibe that pervades these cramped counter-only environs. To call the food at Eat-Rite cheap is an understatement -- six burgers (real-size, not White Castle-size) run $4.50. And many swear by the Eat-Rite's redoubtable slinger (for the uninitiated, that'd be fried eggs, hash browns and a burger patty, avec chili).

    If you are a fan of old roadside diners you can't beat this place. It is dripping in nostalgia, right Dow to the pie display.

    Eat here when drunk.

    Eat Rite or Don't eat at all!! Best Slinger in the Lou

    Tell staff that racism is wrong. Waitress told 2 black men wanting to eat. "It'll be 25 min. before we got to you right now. We're busy." A lie. When men left she said "I didn't want to serve them"
