The popular burger joint from Sugarfire owner Mike Johnson is expanding across the river.

Hi-Pointe Drive-In, known for it's burgers, milkshakes and crazy specials (like a recent taco burger with grilled cheese sandwiches for the buns) opened last year in St. Louis City.

The fast-casual burger joint located in the Hi-Pointe neighborhood has been widely successful and popular. It was only a matter of time before they expanded. Owner Mike Johnson tells News 4, they will open the new location in O'Fallon, IL hopefully by the end of the year. The first Sugarfire in Illinois opened last week.

Johnson is also expanding the Sugarfire brand across the country, bringing St. Louis BBQ to Colorado, Ohio and Arizona.
