Shyla Watson

Sometimes there is nothing more satisfying than biting into a thick, juicy burger. Order a regular all-American cheeseburger, or try something more adventurous like a gourmet bison blue cheese burger. Eat with a side of fries or onion rings, a soda or a milkshake. There are so many options it can be hard to make a decision. Read our guide to discover the best burgers in St. Louis.

Bailey’s Range

Bailey’s Range

Bailey’s Range has a wide range of options for your burgers. Decide between beef, aged sirloin, smoked beef, bison, chicken, lamb or veggie; then select a beer bun, pretzel bun, or gluten free bun. Next come the toppings. Choose your own cheese, greens and condiments, or trust the chef by choosing one of the twenty, expertly designed burgers on the menu. A burger wouldn’t be anything without the fries so order a small or large side order, in addition to a tasty dipping sauce. Bailey’s is also a great place for kids: in addition to burgers, kids may order chicken fingers, hotdogs, or a simple grilled cheese – not to mention, they have over five amazing flavors of homemade ice cream milkshakes.
