Our latest on the countdown of Gut Check's 100 favorite dishes was the "burger" at vegetarian and whiskey restaurant Small Batch Whiskey & Fare (3001 Locust Street; 314-380-2040). It's made of a corn fritter and topped with Chihuahua cheese, guacamole, black bean salsa and rooster sauce. That got us thinking -- there have to be other delicious veggie burgers that even us omnivores can enjoy.

Owner Sam Kogos thinks it may be because of Riverbend's out-of-the-way location. If you do find it, Kogos is certain you'll be surprised by the food.
