Our History
On November 28, 2011, Alan Grimsley trembled outside of what used to be his burger restaurant.  After a year of hard work and dedication, he watched his beloved Starburger Restaurant in Liberty Hill burn to the ground. One month later, on the verge of financial ruin, Alan placed a single ad in the business section of Craigslist, searching for an investor interested in opening a new burger joint. The next morning Alan had several emails in his inbox, but one in particular stood out.  The email was from Georgetown resident and real estate investor, Rob May.  Rob explained that he owned the century-old “Lockett Building” on the beautiful square in Georgetown and that he always wanted to turn it into a burger joint.  It did not take long for the two men to realize that they shared the same vision and within a month after their introduction, Burger University was born. Burger University was created with all of the values each man felt were vital to the community – Alan’s vision for super fresh hand-made food paired with Rob’s desire to have a family-oriented and fun environment. The character and charm of the “Lockett Building” were apparent and proved to be an ideal match for Burger University’s traditional style. The result is a perfect blend of excellent food and a magnificent atmosphere.  With this in mind, the three pillars of Burger University were formed: quality, excellence and service.  Burger University is committed to ensuring every meal is prepared with the freshest ingredients (quality), that our food and environment are superior (excellence), and that each customer considers themselves a graduate with highest honors at this alma mater (service).


Alma Mater
The walls of Burger University are painted a rich navy blue which is complimented by the warm brown tones from the antique pine floors and hand crafted banisters.  The halls are decorated with black and white photos of various Texas colleges and universities as well as menus (our curriculum) inscribed on giant blackboards.  The atmosphere at Burger University is such that it creates a wonderful and inviting place for families, friends and colleagues to gather.  Everyone who eats at Burger University is a Graduate with Highest Honors and claims us as their Alma Mater!  Burger University’s commitment to our community is second to none.  We strive to provide every customer a memorable and unique experience along with a mouth watering burger!
