"The highlight of this concept is the beef," Gontram says. "First of all, I needed an all-
natural, hormone-free beef. We grind it in-house. It is grass-fed, it's pastured-raised, corn-finished. We buy from a company called Creekstone, and it's their all-natural line. I
could have gone more local with 100 percent grass-fed, but in my experience the beef that I'm using is more consistent and has more flavor."

In addition to traditional burgers, 5 Star's menu features bison and other specialty burgers, salads, sweet potato and russet potato fries and milkshakes. The fully stocked
bar hosts happy hour seven days a week, which features half-priced draft beers and
wines, as well as a menu full of sliders and small bites that range from 25 cents to $1.

After leaving the fine dining world, Gontram has really settled into the next chapter of his
culinary career.

"I love it, I love it," he says. "It's exactly what I wanted to get into at this stage in my life. I
love a good burger, and I think no matter what you do as a chef that if you're happy and
proud of the food you're serving, and you're having a good time, I'd say you're in a good
spot."

The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
