About 5 Star Burgers

Oct 01 2012

A few thoughts about what sets us apart…

Our Black Angus All-Natural beef is hormone and antibiotic free from Creekstone Farms. Creekstone’s all-natural program lays its foundation on supporting small ranchers, verifiable Black Angus genetics, pasture grazing, and the humane treatment of its’ livestock. So concerned is Creekstone regarding the safety, treatment, and quality of its product, its’ modest, lone Midwest facility was personally designed by none other than Dr. Temple Grandin.

At 5 Star Burgers, our all-natural beef is fresh-ground and hand-formed each and every day. In addition to using all-natural beef, our other specialty burgers, sandwiches, and salads are created with our customers’ concerns in mind – whenever possible, we source all-natural, organic products to serve at our table all at a great value.

Waste not, want not.

Knowing full-well the waste generated by the restaurant industry, 5 Star Burgers is proud to use fully-recyclable, recycled, biodegradable, and/or compostable paper products. Our carry-out containers are made from 100% recycled paper and our drink cups are made from recycled plastic. We contract with a recycling program to dispose of our recyclable glass, plastic, and paper trash.

Even our kitchen has been designed with the environment in mind. We use energy efficient equipment, heating, and air-conditioning, and our hood/exhaust system has been equipped with an economizer which saves energy during off-peak hours. We are a partner with Ameren UE’s Pure Power program, through which we purchase Renewable Energy Credits (REC’s) to support the production of clean energy like wind power. Last but not least, all of our fryer oil is recycled for post-restaurant use in products such as feed and bio-diesel fuel.

It doesn’t mean much if you can’t serve a great burger…

I know that all of the above won’t keep you coming back for more. It may not even get you in the front door. Serving a great hamburger is at the heart of what we do. I believe in the quality of our ingredients and will always strive to provide a food and service experience that will win your trust. A lot of effort and imagination has gone into making what I believe is a truly fantastic dining experience, and if the beefy, juicy flavor of a 5 Star Burger doesn’t win you over, I would like to know about it!

…with a frosty craft beer or a Maine Root fountain soda!

At 5 Star Burgers, we think the perfect complement to one of our burgers is a frosty glass of beer. We have spent a good deal of time coming up with a diverse list of draft, bottled, and canned beers to add to your burger bliss! From a cold, frosty Budweiser to the session goodness of The Civil Life, we have a full spectrum of IBU’s to treat your taste buds. Come enjoy our two dozen selections by the bottle or any of our 8 local craft drafts.

If beer is not for you, we are proud to announce that we have partnered with Maine Root as the only St. Louis establishment to provide its’ organic and fair-trade sugar cane sweetened fountain sodas. Try all eight flavors from Mexicane Cola to Maine Blueberry, and even dress them up as a delicious Ice Cream Float.

We all scream for ice cream!

We are proud to have a great menu of 5 Star Shakes made with our great local ice creamery Ronnie’s Ice Cream. Or, if you’re just interested in something small, try a mini ice cream cone for only a buck!

We want to be your burger place!!!

I know there are a lot of burgers out there. I happen to think ours is pretty special. I encourage you to order your burger to your desired doneness as we have the utmost confidence in the flavor and juiciness of our all-natural beef. I think you will love your 5 Star Burger.

Thanks for visiting our website. We look forward to seeing you soon!
