If Animal from the Muppets needed to refuel after thrashing on his drum kit, he might head down to D’s Place in Soulard. There, he could chow down on a beast of a burger just as monstrous as his mad music skills. D’s Place’s “Danimal” is a behemoth between two buns: two seven-ounce burgers, four slices of cheddar cheese, four pieces of peppery bacon and a thick-sliced onion ring. Then again, he could also opt for the “Hell Fire,” the half-pound burger that D’s Place crowns with hot sauce, jalapeños and blue cheese, or its massive Reuben sandwich topped with a ground beef patty. No matter their appetites, any monsters in your acquaintance will find something from the selection of ten different specialty burgers here to more than sate their hunger. At this quintessential neighborhood bar, the food is fresh, the juke box is pumping and the Jaegermeister flows freely — just what the monsters ordered. RFT photo.
