In 1978, we had a plan to work in a friendly environment where our guests would be welcomed and always feel comfortable; one that offered quality food at value prices. We wanted to serve food quickly, but not serve fast food. We wanted to serve popular and common food (after all, what's more common than a burger in the USA?) but prepare it in an uncommon way -- with special attention to quality and selection. We wanted our guests to have plenty of fresh choices when it came to condiments. We wanted a place we could be proud of and where we would make lots of new friends!

The original Burger Hut in Chico, California was located just across the railroad tracks from California State University, Chico. Over the years we have consistently provided quick value-packed meals to college students, while helping many work their way through school as employees. As our popularity grew, so did our business, and we opened several other Burger Hut locations nearby.

Today, Burger Hut continues to serve the highest quality food. A family owned and operated restaurant tradition, Burger Hut Burgers takes pride in being a part of the community. Our philosophy remains simple -- provide quality fresh food at reasonable prices and let the guests decide what goes on their burgers.

Two generations of our family have made a commitment to keep quality high and our attention personalized. We are not just another burger place. Our Secret Sauce is a traditional recipe of mouthwatering goodness that only we prepare. Our Fresh Fixin's Bar features the finest and freshest produce and condiments available anywhere. We baste all of our burgers with our own Signature Recipe Barbecue Sauce, for uniquely tasty charbroiled perfection. We also get to know our guests by name.

Our family grew our business. Our employees are our family as well, as is our community. Family is important here at Burger Hut, and now we'd like to welcome you into our family too. We want to get to know you better. We want you to know that we care about you and every person you come into contact with in this business: from the vendors and service providers, to your employees and guests. We want you to enjoy this experience as much as we have.

You made a good choice in the Burger Hut, and we hope that having you join our family will be just as good a choice for you as for us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
