Today in excuses to eat something delicious, it's National Cheeseburger Day! Obviously, we need to celebrate. The cheeseburger is a thing of glory, an all-American delight, paired with a side of salty french fries and an ice-cold beer. While it's the perfect time of year to throw some patties on the grill, sometimes you want a professional. Try our favorite cheeseburgers around St. Louis and celebrate the day like our Founding Fathers did. Or something.

Five Star Burgers
(8125 Maryland Avenue, Clayton; 314-720-4350)

Five Star's Steve Gontram brought his father's restaurant to St. Louis from New Mexico. Another import? The green chile cheeseburger. The meat is ground daily and formed into perfectly sized patties, topped with New Mexico Hatch chiles not one but three ways. There's a layer of raw chiles under the burger, a layer of battered and deep-fried chiles on top of the burger (plus pepperjack cheese) and green-chile mayonnaise on the side. It's all served on a toasted brioche bun. It's one of the best burgers in St. Louis, period.

Would you like fries with that?

I realize that it would be boring to have Blueberry Hill as a winner every year.  But come on RFT, the cheddar burger at Blueberry Hill is certainly in St. Louis' Top 5, no iffs, ands or maybes about it.  I will try your 5 picks within the next 30 days and report back.  I will be awestruck if BBH loses its dominance in my rotundity.
