Missouri Eats: Southwest Diner

There’s usually a wait at Southwest Diner on the weekends, with a line snaking out the door, but have some patience, and you won’t regret it. Inside, patrons love the diner’s breakfast fare with a Southwestern twist: The Southwest Slinger comes with two ¼-ounce burger patties, home fries and melted longhorn cheese topped with two eggs and green or red chiles. We also like the classic country-fried steak with housemade sausage gravy and home fries. Stop by on Tuesdays for a shorter wait and fresh tamales from The Tamale Man.
