Dave & Tony's Premium Burger Joint
opened today at 12766 Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur. This is the former location of Sammy Scott's Sandwiches & More
, which closed in March of this year, and the Dave and Tony of the new venture's name are two of Sammy Scott's owners, David Miller
and Anthony Dahl
Dave & Tony's apes the trend of so-called "better burger" joints such as Five Guys Burgers & Fries
(which will be entering the St. Louis market later this year). Diners can build their burgers from a selection of buns, cheeses, condiments, sauces and toppings both standard (lettuce, tomato and bacon, of course) and not (ham, pineapple, avocado).
Dave & Tony's also features some custom burgers like the "St. Louis" (yes, it has Provel) as well as such nonbeef fare as turkey burgers, a grilled-chicken sandwich and grilled cheese. You can see the whole menu on the Dave & Tony's website
Now, don't head over there as soon as you finish reading this. For its opening today, Dave & Tony's was open until 1:30 p.m only. Its regular hours will be 11 a.m.-9:30 p.m. daily. For more information, call 314-439-5100.
