Five Star Burgers (8125 Maryland Avenue; 314-720-4350) is adding a second location in Kirkwood, as first reported by St. Louis magazine. The new Five Star Burgers will take over the space of the recently closed Culpeppers at 312 South Kirkwood Road.

Owner and chef Steve Gontram opened the gourmet burger joint in Clayton last October after Gontram sold Harvest to its executive chef. Gontram's father, Bob, actually opened the very first Five Star in New Mexico in 2008; there are three total in that state and three more in Colorado.

The old two-story Culpeppers building will undergo a renovation before Five Star Burgers opens later this fall. Haven't tried Five Star's impressive burgers yet? Maybe this slideshow will change your mind.
