St. Louis food: Best places to get a burger
ST. LOUIS – Two burger joints in St. Louis are recognized nationally as the best of the best in the country.
Food & Wine Magazine recently named Mac’s Local Eats and Stacked STL two of the top 20 spots in America to grab a burger.
“It’s humble. It’s exciting to see what my co-workers and I have been up to in two or three years, “said Chris McKenzie, owner of Macs Local Eats.
Macs Local Eats recently moved to Bluewood Brewing in the Benton Park neighborhood – and burger lovers have been lining up ever since.
“People come here expecting Burger Nirvana. Every single burger has to be a nirvana, ”McKenzie said.

He said that nirvana comes from the meat itself and how it is made.
“You create a lot of flavor when you shape these burgers thin and get those crispy edges,” McKenzie explained, adding that the dry-ripened beef they used also changed the taste of their burgers.
While Mac’s is already well known in the St. Louis area, McKenzie said Food & Wine recognition added a little more sizzle to their grill.
“Man, it really got us on the menu, on the burger menu, for sure,” he said.
Stacked STL in South City has also been recognized as one of the best burger joint in the United States. Stacked STL is known for letting you create the burger of your dreams.
