Big, cheap and good. Those three words sum up the burger at O'Connell's to a t. You've got a large chunk of beef, topped with melted American cheese, a big ole' onion, and ketchup and mustard if you so choose. You'll be more than full, and you'll spend less than $6 for it.

The Red Lion may be new on the scene, but its burger is already reaching legendary status in St. Louis. One type of meat isn't enough for The Red Lion. The cooks here mix lamb and beef together, throw in some caramelized onions, barbecue sauce and a toasted brioche bun to create a taste orgy.

Carl's hearkens back to another time... a time when a single, flat patty burger was just right. Carl's burgers are practically healthy compared to some of the other behemoth burgers on this list. These are the type of burgers your grandparents liked to eat, and as Carl's fans would most certainly point out, less is more when it comes to flavor.

A thick grilled burger cooked over an open flame makes this mouth-watering burger practically melt off the bun. Piled high with cheese, lettuce, pickle, onion and tomato, the famous seven ounce hamburger has classic grill marks on both sides of the patty and the classic diner taste.
