The Finer Side of Fast
Always Fresh. Always Fast. Always Made to Order.
It was a simple desire to do something special in the restaurant business that brought Mike Knapp (operations manager of nine Steak & Ale restaurants), John Storms (burger enthusiast), and Win Campbell (foodie, one-time burger flipper) together in the summer of 1984. The founders spent a year researching different concept ideas before finally deciding to create
their own category: fresh, high-quality, cooked- to-order fast food, grilled over mesquite wood coals. Thus was born Becks Prime. The first Becks Prime opened on Kirby Drive in 1985 with a double drive-thru and an open air patio, and we’ve grown steadily since then.
No Freezers. No Microwaves. Always Fresh.
Since then, very little has changed with regard to our food preparation and relentless drive for superior food quality. Our founders continue to be involved in the day-to-day running of the company. Our cooks on-site grind and patty fresh Angus chuck roast daily, Boar’s Head makes a ¼-pound hot dog exclusively for us, and our chicken breasts marinate slowly and are never frozen - (our only freezer is for the beer mugs).
And everything is cooked-to-order, grilled over mesquite wood coals, just like it was over twenty-eight years ago.
