Opening Night 2008

“Padre Island Burger Company is the vision of chef/owner Jason. Born and raised in Corpus Christi and currently a proud Padre Island resident, Jason had long wanted to open a restaurant/bar of his own. He has his bachelor’s degree from the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in Hyde Park, New York, where he honed not only his cooking skills, but his management skills as well.”


 While at the CIA, Jason completed his externship at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. He worked in a variety of kitchens as well as banquets. Jason worked with Emeril Lagasse on several occasions and met & cooked for many celebrities while cooking such as Robin Williams, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Andre Agassi & many more.

After graduation from the CIA, Jason began as the Restaurant Manager at the Sheraton South Padre Beach Hotel on South Padre Island. He worked his way up to Executive Chef before he left to return to Corpus Christi to own his own place, now known as Padre Island Burger Company.


We hope you enjoy the gourmet burgers, drinks and laid back atmosphere.
Please come join us again and again for some fun and fellowship.
