Diners hold a special place in American culture. While the origins of the American diner can be traced back to the latter half of the 1800s, it wasn’t until the 1920s that the diners we’ve come to know and love began to take shape.
Named after their resemblance to a dining car you’d find on a train, diners quickly became a place where the average joe could find a delicious and substantial meal for a fair price. The food was simple yet comforting as it resembled the classics you’d expect from a homemade meal.
Kingside Diner is proud to be a part of the diner community throughout the United States. While they value the historic charm of diners from the past, like the classic interiors and hometown hospitality, they’ve also taken a step into modernity by including elevated menu items like freshly ground espresso and creative cocktail specials.
With three locations throughout the St. Louis area, it’s easy to stop by and grab a bite from their inventive menu, which includes items like build-your-own breakfast burritos, Caprese grilled cheese, and classic griddled burgers.
