"You know," the bartender said as she leaned in a little closer. "The servers from O'Connell's [Pub] come in here for our burger."
It's no wonder she had such a hushed tone. O'Connell's Pub has legendary burgers. That some of the employees have been spotted bellying up to the bar at Three Flags Tavern (4940 Southwest Avenue; 314-669-9222) for the brisket burger is akin to catching a Schlafly employee with a bottle of Busch. But who can blame them? Three Flags Tavern's brisket burger is, without question, the town's reigning burger champ.
