A&B Burgers is a burger joint at heart, but it's a burger joint that will bring you high-quality foods and amazing hospitality in a clean family-friendly environment. We plan to keep things simple; we serve the best burgers around, we serve ice cream and milkshakes, we serve beer wine and cocktails...Keep it simple. We want to bring the modern burger joint to Beverly and we will separate ourselves by hiring for character first, then empowering our staff, as we want our staff to succeed along with the restaurant. We want to be a partner with the community by being an active member Beverly and other communities we grow along with.
Our goal is to not only have restaurants, but also reach out to neighboring towns by serving our high-quality burgers through food trucks and even sidewalk stands this will create a desire for the original. There's great growth potential for A&B Burgers but we will never outgrow our commitment: great hospitality, knowledgeable staff members, well trained management, and consistency in product is the key for A&B Burger success.
