Burger Hut

About Burger Hut


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.
