Hamburger Mary's is not a "chain," but a family of locally-owned independent restaurants. Each franchise location has its own character, because each owner and each city is unique. But no matter which Mary's you visit, you will experience the charm and openness of the original Hamburger Mary's. People have come to associate Hamburger Mary's with friendly service, a mouth-watering menu and an overall flamboyant dining experience. Their "family dining" concept guarantees everyone is welcome at Hamburger Mary's but their concept is distinctive because they are the only national restaurant brand with a strong history in the LGBT community.
