The Story

We had the burger – the original 5 Napkin Burger – 10oz of 100% all natural Angus chuck from Aspen Ridge, griddled to desired temperature, topped with gruyere cheese, caramelized onions and rosemary aioli on a soft white potato roll. This is the burger, Chef Andy’s burger. Then, and now, it remains our guide. A burger like this can answer a lot of questions if you let it. Ours are big and made with care. A good 3oz west coast style smash burger has its’ time and place, but that place isn’t here. Custom blends may be all the rage, but for us 100% chuck is the purest expression of burger happiness. (This same passion has also given rise to the best veggie burger on the planet.) We like them medium rare with a nice pink center and juices running down your arm, but you have it as you like it. We like them with a few premium toppings that are there for a reason, not just to sound good, or with hopes of going viral.

We strive to elevate the burger experience to its top shelf – because you and your burger deserve better. While other “burger joints” serve their burgers in wax paper, or in a cardboard box, 5 Napkin Burger holds itself to a higher standard. Burgers this great deserve to be served stacked high on a real plate, at a table with a proper setting, and with a great glass of wine or a craft beer, by a person who speaks the language of real service. A 5 Napkin Burger could never be eaten standing up. Knife and fork is optional – 5 Napkins are required.

As we enter our second decade we have decided to get back to our roots and focus on our core mission: to serve fantastic burgers in a beautiful setting, with friendly service and a tasty cocktail, while making 5 Napkin Burger a generous supporter of the community, and a great place to work for everyone on our team.

That sounds like enough to us ‐ we hope you agree.
