9 Hometown Restaurants In Missouri That Will Take You Back In Time
One of my favorite things about going home for the holidays is eating out at my favorite childhood restaurants. These delicious dining establishments in Missouri have held their own for many years and it’s mostly due to their loyal local customers who continue to come back for more, time and time again.
1. Oscar's Diner - Jefferson City
The retro interior of Oscar's will take you back to the days of rollerskating rinks, movie drive-ins and muscle cars. Their food isn't too shabby either.

2. Crown Candy Kitchen - St. Louis
Crown Candy is the oldest operating restaurant in St. Louis and continues to serve up the best sweet treats in the city! You can also grab lunch and dinner while you're here.
