Over the past 12 plus years, I have attempted to give these people the benefit of the doubt (and change my feelings) by accompanying my family or visit solo, once a year, because initially, I was not impressed. Someone who has lived in St. Louis all their life had recommended UBP's for breakfast - so, my family and I made the trip. First of all, the servers acted as though they were doing us a favor by acknowledging we were there! It took quite a while before they returned with our drink order, even though it was sparcely populated! After that, it simply went downhill!!! Orders were messed up - no opologies, just an ""oh, well"" attitude. The food was OK - nothing special. We pretty much tried breakfast items to dinner items, to give us an overall experience of the menu. The prices are fair and competitive for that class of restaurant, the appearance is fine, albeit a bit depressing - in dyer need of a facelift. In the past couple of ""tries"", it seems as though it has gotten worse. So, as of last week, no more trips there for me! Honestly, St. Louis, particularly the West County area where I reside, has numerous restaurants of this venue with even fairer prices and much better food - not to mention the service and attitude of their employees. Everyone has their""deal"", but for heaven's sake, don't bring it to work!!! Maybe the ""regulars"" have a better experience because they have a rapport with the workers, which, if that's the case, I'm very happy for them. Honestly, I won't be surprised if they closed their doors for good, in the near future, because other than convenience for the apartment dwellers (on the Manchester Road area), there really isn't any other reason to frequent the place. Sorry. I'm not hard to please; I'm a nurse and I understand how difficult things can be... Maybe the South City Uncle Bill's is better...I hope so. And if that's the case, maybe Manchester should take some notes from South City!
Pros: Open 24 hours
Cons: Unpleasant service
