#90: The "Dam Burger" at the Dam

The "Dam Burger" | Jennifer Silverberg

If Pulp Fiction's Jules Winnfield thought his "Big Kahuna" burger was tasty, he would be downright out of his mind for the "Dam Burger" at the Dam (3173 Morganford Road; 314-771-3173).

Think of this juicy, oozing behemoth of a burger as the hedonistic cousin of a patty melt: two patties of local and humanely raised beef are sandwiched between slices of sourdough bread that double as sponges for butter. The burger is topped with melted Swiss and American cheeses, and slathered with so much "Dam sauce" that it drips out of the sides. The "Dam sauce" is glorious -- a tangy, creamy concoction reminiscent of Thousand Island dressing. It's a multi-napkin affair that goes great with some mayonnaise-dipped fries. Go big or go home.

Had their chili at the Iron Fork. It was one of the best dishes served that night. The owner was also one of the friendliest servers that evening.

Had jury duty this week and a fellow juror mentioned the burger at the Dam as the best she'd ever had.
