Our Team

We opened for business on A quest for a better burger led founder Mark Johnson to open his own burger joint. Tired of the same old fast food options and disappointed with the "gourmet" burger restaurants, Mark decided to make his own gourmet burger and make it truly gourmet.  


After experimenting with a blend of different ground beefs, Mark was finally satisfied with his unique blend of Filet Mignon, Ribeye, and Prime Rib to make the best burger ever. But, not to leave out his vegetarian friends, Mark was sure to include plenty of vegetarian options on his menu. 


After teaming up with Chef Bradley Grosh in 2007, the two perfected the menu and experienced great success with the Fresh Made Family Recipes.

Our dining is on a first come, first served basis. However, if you have a large party, are planning an event, or need catering services, drop us a line and we'll hook you up.
