"When you take a bite of this burger, it's going to be one of the best burgers you've ever had," Steve Gontram, chef/owner of 5 Star Burgers, told us back in March about what he had in the works for his new Clayton restaurant.

Well, fellow burger lovers, the wait is over. 5 Star opens today at 11am with a menu of 8-ounce, fresh-ground, hand-formed hamburgers that, from the pictures we've seen on 5 Star's Facebook page, look every bit as delicious as Gontram promised. Burgers are cooked to temperature with a variety of toppings, and 5 Star also offers sandwiches, salads and a full bar. Read more about the venture in our previous Feed story.
