We are a family owned burger restaurant and having lived in Chicago, and being familiar with the Andersonville neighborhood we came to the conclusion that what the neighborhood needed was a burger joint that served a quality fresh burger, as opposed to the frozen patty alternative. We always felt that the best way to serve a burger, is to serve a fresh burger. In order to further add to that quality experience, we felt that hand cut fries would make a world of difference in complimenting a fresh burger.
As we began discussing how our theory of the ideal burger joint would be put into practice, our conversations constantly revolved around making sure our customers reap the benefits of our philosophy. That word “philosophy” was used over and over again, and it was only a matter of a few days before we started thinking “what better name for our restaurant than The Burger Philosophy.” This in turn led to the Nietzsche quote on our wall and the birth of what is now the neighborhood burger joint…The Burger Philosophy.
