Ghostburger mission image


Ghostburger was established in Washington, DC in August of 2020 to immediate critical acclaim. It was the brainchild of the team behind Espita, a Mexican restaurant in Washington, as a response to the changing restaurant operating environment during the pandemic. It was initially designed as a high impact, high quality burger and sandwich takeaway shop, built around incredibly efficient operations to allow production with a limited team and space. The immediate demand was so high that it quickly evolved into a full-serviced dining operation in addition to its original takeaway origins.
