I guess after Porkapalooza I am now on a burger bender. My burger kick continued with a recent trip to Dave and Tony’s Premium Burgers. This unassuming burger joint is located in a strip mall as part of a Schnuck’s shopping center off of Olive in Creve Coeur.
They have a list of burgers with different topping combinations that they have selected. I prefer to use the option-laden “Build Your Own” menu. Look at this beauty:
This is an: extra large premium steakburger, Dave’s original bun, provel cheese, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms, fried egg, and honey mustard.
The quality of the meat is as good as you can find at a premium burger place. Good amount of fat to keep it moist and give flavor. I have been to Dave and Tony’s more times that I should admit. Early on, I had a few issues getting a properly cooked medium rare. Lately they have nailed it each time. This was another good example.
My only regret was the topping combination I chose. The sweet onions and honey mustard were good, but it was a little too sweet with both on the same burger. I think next time I will either swap out the provel for smoked Gouda or the honey mustard for chipotle ketchup or steak sauce.
Dave and Tony’s continues to offer up some of the best burgers in town. Their menu provides an unlimited amount burger combinations for you to choose from. If you are a burger enthusiast like me, Dave and Tony’s is a must. Stay tuned this week for some posts from my trip to the New York City Wine and Food Festival!
Dive 2 Five Scale – 3. It’s a family friendly burger place in a strip mall. They have a modern decor and a handful of TV’s always tuned on sports. They have beer and limited wine to choose from as well. You can make this a grab and go or stop and take your time to enjoy one of their burgers.
