Ferguson Burger Bar & More

This restaurant has closed

Ferguson Burger Bar & More closed in June 2016. The national and international media have moved on. Ferguson Burger Bar & More, at the West Florissant Avenue flashpoint of 2014’s unrest, remains. And its signature Garbage Burger is still mandatory eating for fans of griddled burgers, its flavor of beef and char sounding clear and true through the assembly of cheese, mayonnaise and the oozing yolk of a fried egg. Crisp bacon and onion add crunch, and somehow the toasted bun contains the whole edifice. Add seasoned crinkle-cut fries and a soda for a few more bucks. If you’re in a pinch, a single plain burger will set you back only $3.

Opened: 2014 (current ownership)

Must order: Garbage Burger (single $6.50, double $7.50)
