FRESH LOOKS DIFFERENT HERE
Each of our award-winning burgers, hot dogs and sandwiches are cooked-to-order, grilled to perfection and prepared with the freshest ingredients available.
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.
“BEST BURGERS BAR NONE. REAL FRIES,Zagat
AND HEAVENLY, THICK MILKSHAKES.”
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 Certified Angus Beef® 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 thirty years ago.
WHAT MAKES A BECKS PRIME BURGER SO GOOD?
We start with never-frozen 100% Certified Angus Beef chuck roast that’s ground fresh every morning at each location's kitchen. Each of our famous burgers are grilled-to-order over 1000° mesquite wood coals and prepared with the freshest ingredients available.
