Charles and Kizzie Davis’ Ferguson Burger Bar & More started out as a humble burger joint. Then the tragic shooting of Mike Brown by then-Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson happened, and the pair was thrust into the spotlight as figureheads for a city in crisis. The husband and wife team have risen to the occasion, refusing to shutter as their city was stricken with chaos and grief and serving as a place for the community to gather over soul food and diner fare. The house specialty is the “Garbage Burger” — a ground beef patty, laden with a secret seasoning blend and smashed thin on a flattop so it develops a crispy edge. The burger is topped with lettuce, thick sliced white onions, crispy bacon, a slice of American cheese, mayonnaise and a fried egg. Ferguson Burger Bar & More serves eight different varieties of chicken wingettes, including peach, “Sweetnspicy,” and lemon pepper, as well as fried fish dinners, shrimp and Philly cheesesteak sandwiches. Breakfast is served all day. For hungry diners, the “Hearty Man’s Breakfast” provides a sampling of nearly the entire a.m. side of the menu: breakfast meat, three eggs, French toast and hash browns smothered in cheese, peppers and onions. Wash it all down with the house’s “Muddy Water,” a refreshing blend of sweet tea and citrusy juice.
