Five Star Burgers will reopen its original location at 8125 Maryland Avenue in Clayton for takeout, curbside pickup and delivery on Monday. However, the restaurant's location at 11621 Olive Boulevard in Creve Coeur is now closed permanently, owner Steve Gontram announced Thursday.
Both locations closed until further notice in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
“The current and foreseeable economic climate created by the coronavirus pandemic is simply too devastating,” Gontram's Facebook announcing the closure reads in part. “Although I decided in mid-March to temporarily close both 5 Star Burgers locations, for various reasons it became clear in late April that only the Clayton location would be a viable store for the future.
“This decision was an incredibly painful one to make. I am incredibly sad for the 5 Star Burgers family and the Creve Coeur staff. It is my hope that I will get to work with some of these people again.”
