Where it all began...
Having worked for well-known American eateries, and spent years creating amazing cocktails, he soon knew that he wanted an American-style hang-out of his very own. After years of working late nights in bars and being on the wrong side of 30, it all started to catch up with him. But the prospect of owning his own burger joint, serving world class burgers and cocktails, was a dream he simply couldn’t stop thinking about.

Tony is a bit of a perfectionist and loves nothing more than ‘getting his geek on' with burgers. Tweaking, altering and adjusting his menu until it was just right and perfecting the cut, the grind and the recipe for his mouth-watering burgers was all part of the process.
Hello Burger was born out of a love for great quality food and from the enjoyment of dining out with friends and family. It’s Tony’s take on an American staple in a British locale. And in Tony’s words, ‘There’s nothing better in this industry than seeing people have a great time.’
