Affton Breakfast & Burger Opened on Monday: "Burgers Right and Left"

The owner said breakfast will build slowly, but lunch has been crazy.

Affton Breakfast & Burger opened on Monday and so far has kept the char broiler busy with burgers.

Owner Ismail Ilhan said lunchtime has been crazy.

"Yesterday all we were doing was burgers right and left. I have three cooks and I had to go help," Ilhan said. He even ran out of meat. "I had to call the food company, and I said, 'Emergency, send me ground beef.'"

Ilhan said breakfast needs to pick up a bit, and it will as more people hear about it. He doesn't advertise. He said "worker guys" are the first to arrive for breakfast then the seniors come.

It took three years to build up the business at The Boardwalk Café, his restaurant in Webster Groves, he said. Breakfast & Burger has the same menu.

Breakfast & Burger is in the previous Boodle's BBQ location, at 10024 Gravois Road. Boodles closed last year.

Ilhan said he's added a lunch cook and is now ready for the crowd.

I read the hours are 6:30-2:30 p.m. That's too bad. I think they could do a great dinner business with the huge selection of burgers, salads and sandwiches.

Went there on Friday at 4:30, didnt know the hours. ITs a shame, I work full time and wont be there during those daytime hours for lunch. Guess I'll try breakfas or lunch on a weekend. . Love Boardwalk though. Work in Webster and live in Affton.
