Eat Right Diner on S. 7th and Chouteau Ave. in downtown St. Louis permanently closed its doors in December 2020. Joel & Shawna opened it in 2017 and revived the famous eatery. The restaurant was doing better than before the pandemic. They posted the letter below on their official Facebook on December 19, 2020. (2017 – 2020)
St. Louis, we are deeply saddened to announce we have permanently closed our doors downtown. We want to thank all of the patrons who have supported and dined at the Eat Rite Diner since we took ownership in 2017. Our opening day, the Cardinals Home Opener, in 2018 kicked off a refreshed and rejuvenated Eat Rite Diner.
The start of 2020 was predicted to be the diners best year yet. Our sales were setting the tone for a phenomenal year. Unfortunately, that did not last long due to the pandemic. We thank all of our employees that worked for as long as they could or were allowed to. And a special thank you to our last standing employee who stuck with the diner from the beginning of our ownership to the last day, Mitraya Dixon aka “Mickey”.
You never know what the future holds! Goodnight St. Louis and remember to Eat-Rite or Don’t Eat at All.https://www.facebook.com/eatritestl/
