Ferguson Burger Bar

Thrust into the spotlight by its location and coincidence — new owners Charles and Kizzie Davis took over the strip-mall restaurant in Ferguson the day before police Officer Darren Wilson shot and killed 18-year-old Michael Brown — Ferguson Burger Bar & More became a gathering spot for the community and the media (local, national, global) in the tumultuous weeks that followed. In hindsight, this isn’t so surprising. The restaurant’s spirit is welcoming, its food (burgers, wings, breakfast fare) delicious — especially the signature Garbage Burger, a perfect fast-food burger.
