A regular reader -- and tipster -- sent along word that the small chain Christy's Hamburgers
is opening at 14560 Manchester Road in Ballwin. This would be the second area location; the first is located 3957 Mid Rivers Mall Drive in Cottleville.
According to Christy's website
, the chain was founded in the 1980s in Starkville, Mississippi. In 2002, Belleville, Illinois, native Todd Burkis purchased the original Christy's and, with his brother Ryan, has expanded in Mississippi as well as Missouri.Christy's menu
is brief. Besides burgers and fries, it includes chicken tenders, fish and grilled chicken sandwiches and a cheesesteak. I haven't been to the Cottleville location. Readers who have, what am I missing?
