Welcome to month five of my quest to find the best burger in St. Louis based on the votes of my readers. After last month when we visited a local landmark that I know quite well, we are back into the realm of the unknown with the burger from Michael's Bar & Grill in Maplewood.
Known as the "Michael Burger", I can find little about this burger besides that its a 10 ounce patty of chopped sirloin and that a lot of you voted for it. Besides the occasional review of this Greek restaurant in the local media I have been unable to find much detail to share besides a really fuzzy picture of the menu.
In any event, looking at the way the votes panned out it appears that we have moved past the burgers that got enough votes to make the cut into the burgers that showed up again and again in the results. While the judging remains the same, I have to admit that I'm expecting some really good burgers going forward.
It will be fun to see if there is indeed wisdom in crowds, starting with the May burger from Michael's.
