We have to move.

For 13 years, we have called the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Sweetzer Avenue our home. We love our little West Hollywood burger stand, and all our loyal customers, but circumstances beyond our control are forcing us to find a new location.

And we need your help.

Moving is expensive. So is setting up a new restaurant. But we want to make the new Irv's Burgers, wherever it lands next on the map, as inviting and delicious as the location that so many of you have come to love, and we are hoping that you, our Irv's family, can support our move to a new space.

In donating our Indiegogo campaign, you'll be helping our family prepare for the next phase of Irv's Burgers history, but you'll also be treating yourself to our delicious food and hospitality while showing the world that you believe in small businesses that care about their community.

Whether you donate enough to get a hand-drawn thank-you note from Sonia, a T-shirt, a limited-edition refillable soda cup or even a menu item named after you, your help will mean more to us than you can know.

We don't know where the new Irv's Burgers will be located yet. We're still looking for a space and our final day in West Hollywood is OCTOBER 30 (come see us soon). But we feel like our customers are our family, and we hope that our family will support this next step in our lives and in the continued existence of Irv's Burgers.

    A hand-drawn “thank you” postcard from Irv’s owner Sonia Hong. If you’ve been to Irv’s Burgers you’ve experienced the personal touch Sonia adds to every meal when she writes a message or draws a picture on your paper plate or to-go bag. Now you can have one that won’t get ketchup all over it.

    VIP TABLE IN YOUR NAME

    Everything listed at the lower levels (except your name on a chair) and your name on a table at the new location. It’ll be your own personal VIP table. You can reserve it before you show up, sit there and act like a king. It’ll be like you own it except you won’t. Either way your friends will be impressed. (*No, we will not remove people from your table if you show up unannounced. That would be rude.)

    A YEAR OF FOOD + ROUTE 66 TOUR

    You get the postcard from Sonia, the cup and the t-shirt (while supplies last). Most importantly, you get a personal guided tour of historic Route 66 locations (given by Scott Piotrowski, an expert on all things 66) and one free combo each week at the future Irv's location for a full calendar year. You’ll probably get a serious hug from Sonia each time you visit, too, but we can’t guarantee it. [NOTE: The tour will take two people at a time]

    A SANDWICH NAMED FOR YOU

    Everything from the lower levels (again, the t-shirts are in somewhat limited supply) and a menu item named after you when the new Irv's location opens. Are you rich? Have you always dreamed of being a cheeseburger? This is your level. You’ll be immortal. If you’re already famous then this will be like having a sandwich named after you at the Carnegie Deli, which probably hasn’t happened yet, so here’s your shot!
