Best Burgers: Mickey's

Decent seafood may be as rare as a four-carat diamond in St. Louis, but there's no shortage of good burgers in virtually every quadrant of the city and county, in such places as South St. Louis, University City and out west in Chesterfield. But even if you think you know who cooks up the best burgers in town, you've been missing out if you haven't hit Mickey's, a downtown restaurant with a massive wooden bar, big booths and friendly service. Here, they sprinkle some savory seasoning on a hefty patty before grilling, and it makes all the difference in the world. Try one of these juicy burgers topped with crumbled blue cheese. You'll be back for more.
