The 5 Best Cheeseburgers in St. Louis
The burger at Five Bistro. | Ian Froeb
(5100 Daggett Avenue; 314-773-5553)
We first fell in love with Five Bistro's cheeseburger when chef Anthony Devoti served it at the now-shuttered Newstead Tower Public House. Luckily, he revived it at Five Bistro. Using grass-fed chuck from Rain Crow Ranch, the burger can be topped with your cheese of choice, plus caramelized onions, or a fried egg, or pickled shiitake mushrooms, or smoked pork jowl, or bacon with tomato and a balsamic jam. It's only served at lunch and from 10 p.m. to midnight Thursday through Saturday, though, so plan wisely!
