About us

Layla is St. Louis' only Gourmet Burger & Shawarma Joint. Located in the heart of The Grove, we focus on serving fresh & flavorful fare in an eclectic atmosphere.  We offer fresh ground burgers, fun twists on traditional shawarma sandwiches, hand dipped milkshakes, craft cocktails, & local brews.  All of our beef, pork, bread, ice cream, drafts, & seasonal produce are sourced from local growers and purveyors.  Whether you are enjoying our homemade hummus & falafel fries with a local beer at happy hour, one of our gourmet burgers & a craft cocktail at dinner, or taking in a free concert with friends during our late night lounge you are sure to have an amazing experience.


Our gourmet burgers are handmade using the freshest local ingredients. With nine different types of meat/protein, we offer a unique dining experience for carnivores and vegetarians alike.


Our signature cocktails are some of the most delicious forms of alcohol delivery available in St. Louis. Our friendly bartenders are also well versed in your favorite classics as well.


Our shawarma is served in a traditional grilled pita wrap, fluffy Greek pita or a black bean tortilla stuffed with fresh veggies and homemade sauces. You decide which combination of wrap style and protein you'd like for us to prepare.
