With the pandemic causing constraints on restaurants, you've probably not spent much time in diners lately. Perfect for brunches and late-night excursions alike, diners are usually filled with bustling crowds, which make them less than ideal in times like these. And if you haven't been in a St. Louis diner, you've probably not had the chance to enjoy the city's signature greasy spoon dish: The slinger. If you're looking for a Monday pick-me-up, we recommend hunting down this classic at Southwest Diner.
Southwest Diner is offering its menu of American Southwest-inspired breakfast and lunch dishes for curbside pickup and delivery so you can get a taste of diner food without taking any risks. This restaurant's spin on the iconic St. Louis dish, the Southwest Slinger, is loaded with two hamburger patties, home fries, two eggs, longhorn cheese and a choice of red or green chili. Served with toast to soak it all up, this meal might just transport your taste buds to a time where we could all still gather under fluorescent lights.
