The Class Act is one of my favorite restaurants to dine. It is part of Kirkwood Community College for the students in their Culinary Arts program. The lunch was excellent.

Had dinner on a weekend night. Not crowded. A little off the neaten path. Attentive staff work very hard because this is a teaching facility. We opted for hamburgers. Huge if you add the bacon and toppings. Very tasty. They care about the ingredients.More
