Chris’ Pancake and Dining first opened in St. Louis, Missouri in 1987. Bart and Roseanne Saracino, the family behind a few popular Italian eateries in the area, noticed a demand for all-day breakfast. Years later, their youngest son Chris has taken the reigns and placed his stamp (and his name) on that side of the business. While the restaurant is a pancake house that specializes in breakfast items like omelets, sausage platters, and hash browns, they also have a full lunch and dinner menu. This means guests can still get a burger, salad, or a pasta dinner if they choose, though Chris’ recommend you try the world famous pancakes.
