Great Burger at O'Connell's -- Best in StL?

nosh | Apr 15, 201510:15 AM

Saturday afternoon, and first stop was Olympia's just up McCausland from my mom's place and I'd heard good things about their gyro. But Cards game was on TV and when I asked if one could show me the game, the hostess said "We are a soccer place," so I was out of there.

Went to O'Connell's and took a seat near the TV at the bar. Cheeseburger with american cheese, ordered medium with a char -- took awhile since they were very busy -- but it was excellent. Crunchy crust, delicious thick juicy meat. For decades I couldn't go into O'Connell's because of the thick haze of smoke, but now their burger may be the best. (I miss the Fatted Calf and the scoop of soft cheese.) I only wish I was with someone who would split the burger and a roast beef sandwich, which is also great there.

Anybody suggest a better burger, particularly well under $10?
