IF YOU’VE EVER HAD A KILLER BURGER, YOU KNOW WHAT MAKES US SPECIAL
WHAT WE DO
We make the best burgers imaginable. Everything we do serves our vision to change the way you and your friends think about burgers. That’s why we dedicate our time and resources to mastering this craft and teaching our crew and franchise partners to do the same. We want to introduce the country to what a burger should be, so when people think about a burger, they think of a Killer Burger.
Killer Burger grew out of a passion to introduce the hungry public to the way burgers used to be (and still should be). Ten years ago, our Founder, TJ Southard, realized that the burgers around him had changed so much from the diner burgers of his childhood. The growing trend of gourmet and fusion burgers was creating a product so distant from the original hamburger that they weren’t even recognizable anymore. This disconnect motivated TJ to make a change. Somebody had to do it.
On September 27, 2010, he opened the first Killer Burger in Portland, OR to introduce today’s customers to a new definition of what a burger should be. From then on, he set out to create the best burgers imaginable and serve them in a fun, party environment where customers could leave behind the agendas of the world and relax with great food and excellent service. Now with locations across Oregon and Southern Washington, more and more customers are experiencing the rebirth of the American burger and loving every bite of it.
Fresh, never frozen, beef of the highest quality, grilled with the perfect sear to create a tender, flavorful patty every time. The builds range from the simple (The Purist) to the standard (The Classic) to the bizarre (The Peanut Butter Pickle Bacon). Each burger has its own unique flavor with the patty remaining at the center of all of them.
Our burgers are at the core of everything we do.
Our burgers are our core, but the atmosphere in which those burgers are enjoyed is just as important. Our restaurants are designed to feel like a backyard BBQ with rock n’ roll on the radio, cold beer on tap, and all of your favorite people there having a good time.
We believe in throwing a party for our guests with our crew being your hosts. Our team members are trained to ensure everyone gets their perfect burger and the beer they need while having a great time from the moment they arrive to the moment they leave. And when they do leave, they’re already planning their next visit.
