About US

The story of California Burgers starts in 2002, when founder Theo Tzavaras ventured to Los Angeles for the first time. Full of wonder and wide-eyed optimism, he marvelled at the incredible variety and diversity of the food scene in LA. Theo experienced his first American burger at an iconic burger restaurant in LA, and from that moment on, he was hooked.

Over the years Theo and his family have travelled to L.A countless times. Driven by the city’s tangible energy and endless creativity, Theo knew that he wanted to capture the essence of California and create a unique food experience back home in Melbourne. Taking inspiration from L.A.’s cult-like burger bars, food trucks and the various and vibrant food cultures, Theo began to formulate his own burger bar concept.

California Burgers proudly makes every single burger to order, using freshly prepared ingredients from open until close. Every beef patty is handmade and hand-smashed for each burger, the super-popular pink sauce is also house made and the moreish brioche buns are delivered fresh every day. Consistency, passion and perfectionism go into every order, ensuring that each California Burgers experience is as mouth-watering and memorable as the last.
