My daughter and I tried Chris' Pancake for the first time this past weekend. It was great. Although we had to wait about 20 minutes for a table, it was totally worth it. Our server was friendly, efficient and the food was excellent. We had eggs, pancakes, hash browns, toast, bacon, the works. It all arrived fresh and delicious. And... More

Our relatives knew of this unassuming breakfast place, thank heavens. It was packed when we arrived on a Sunday morning, but they do a great job of churning the tables so the wait is not nearly as long as you think it's going to be.

We're visiting from Charlotte, NC and we enjoy a good breakfast. Chris' did not disappoint. The food was great, the service was prompt and friendly, and they had turkey sausage and turkey bacon! We'll be back the next time we come to St. Louis!

Found this location using a smartphone. Yet another reason to own a smartphone. Knew something was up when I couldn't find a parking place. Breakfast and the service were outstanding and the prices were reasonable. Ambience was comfortable relaxed and we never felt rushed.

All I can say is you better show up hungry! My wife and I took our teenager and 4 of his friends her for lunch since he loves breakfast food. Everything we ordered was a huge portion. Most of the kids ordered cheese burgers and fries and they where not disappointed. All of them where cooked to medium-well. My wife... More
