Gregory Glover opened St. Louis Original Hamburgers at 407 Furys Ferry Road on Thursday and is looking for buildings to add two locations in the Augusta area.

“We’re looking into the Grovetown area right now,” said Glover, who entered the food and beverage industry after the housing market plummeted in 2008. “We also want to do something in the city limits of Augusta as well.”

The restaurant’s name is based on the 1904 St. Louis World Fair, when the hamburger gained widespread popularity, Glover said.

The 2,500-square-foot restaurant formerly was occupied by Raising Cane’s and Pickles Cafe & Grill, which closed in 2012.

The space can accommodate about 175 people and has an outdoor patio. Glover has hired 30 employees.

Dine-in and take-out is offered at the restaurant, and Glover hopes to add curb-side service and catering.

“Whatever the public likes, we can actually change right on the spot or add to the menu,” he said. “It’s more difficult when you’re part of a chain and everything comes from corporate.”

Sounds OK, but...

...for most of us, when we're in Augusta and want a hamburger, we go to Gary's. When we're in North Augusta and want a hamburger, we go to Sno-Cap.

Its a burger joint

We went in and got told here's a menu, stand over there, it just put us off and we went across the street for lunch, got the feeling we were a problem, not potential business, but that's how it goes for a new business, hope it works out, but might wanna concentrate on the first one and go from there. This location reminds me of the place on Wrightsboro that has had a ton of restaurants in it and they all fail, I hope this location doesn't have the same curse.
