About

hamburger heaven steaksHamburger Heaven was established in 1982 and has since opened five locations serving the Birmingham, Alabama, area. We offer your favorite traditional American dishes including hamburgers and cheeseburgers, french fries, chicken tenders, shakes, and sandwiches made fresh to order. We do everything the old fashioned way. No matter what you order, we make sure that it’s done right every time.

All of our hamburgers are made using fresh ground beef that is delivered daily. We use only the highest quality meats, earning us the titles of #1 hamburger by USA Today in 1992 and several Best Burgers in Birmingham awards throughout the years.

sundaes-hamburger-heaven_medOur promise is that your food is not made until you order it! We do not use frozen patties or prepackaged deli meat. When you place your order, each hamburger patty is weighed, pressed flat and seasoned. It is then charbroiled and finished on the grill for that home cooked burger taste you and your family love. Our sandwiches are made with the highest quality deli meat. We use cured Hormel ham and Butterball smoked turkey that is sliced daily. Even our veggies are cut every morning to ensure freshness. All of the lettuce, tomato, and onions that are piled high onto all of our sandwiches are never more than a day old.

Making sure you get the best meal at the best price is our goal. Stop by for lunch or dinner at any of our locations, or rise and shine for breakfast at our Highway 280, Gardendale, or Homewood locations. Our Gardendale restaurant also now offers catering in the Birmingham, AL area! Visit our location pages for maps, directions, and individual hours.

Our History

hamburger-heaven-counter_medIn 1982, Jack Caldwell opened his first restaurant in Irondale, Alabama. In 1992 he sold his local landmark to Eli Stevens (owner of Lloyd’s restaurant). Pete Flach opened his second location in 1997 in Shelby County. Our Homewood and Gardendale locations are the most recent additions. All of our restaurants are locally owned and operated by our dedicated staff.

The Hamburger Heaven family appreciates your business and is committed to keeping our quality to the standards of our beginning. Thank you!
