What does 'hole in the wall place' mean in the US?

Peg | Jun 21, 2011 01:54 PM

In the UK (to the best of my knowledge and experience) a hole in the wall place is a wall, with a hole in it. (i.e. a serving hatch). But many US posts seem to imply that a hole in the wall place has seating and so perhaps has a door, and tables.
So what, from a US point of view, is a 'hole in the wall place'?
