Deemed by local food critics as having one of Orange County's best burgers, we've enjoyed a successful three-year run with our food truck before venturing to open our first brick & mortar location at Westpark Plaza in the city of Irvine, CA.

When we launched as a food truck in 2014, our mission was to deliver simple burgers without all the gimmicks and overly complicated toppings. We partnered with Chef Andres Dangond (who has cooked all over the world including several Michelin-starred restaurants like Alinea and L2O in Chicago), and created a straightforward menu of signature handcrafted burgers made with all-natural, certified humane and free-range meats that are also hormone- and antibiotic-free.

​Our new menu includes our already famous Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings, Spanish Chorizo Croquettes, Smoked Mac & Cheese, and a couple of great desserts, like our Corn Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and Dulce de Leche.

We also have a great selection of local craft beers, wine and an exciting cocktail menu.

OUR STORY -"Intricately Simple"

Founded as a food truck, The Cut has taken OC by storm, being named OC Register's "Critic's Choice Best Food Truck" in 2015 and nominated "Best Burger in OC" for 2016. In 2017, The Cut evolves into a Burger focused restaurant, with a casual, urban and rustic setting, offering American Fare with a refreshing global influence by Chef Andres Dangond.

The Cut's Burgers are all natural, certified humane, free range, hormone and antibiotic free Angus beef, ground in house. Created for burger enthusiasts craving high quality, The Cut truly handcrafts some of the best burgers you'll find today.

In addition to, what many call, "The best Burger they've ever had" you will be able to enjoy sandwiches, salads and shareable plates like Honey Sriracha Chicken Wings, Serrano Ham Croquettes, Smoked Mac & Cheese, desserts like our phenomenal Bread Pudding and an amazing Brunch menu on the weekends.

The Cut's philosophy, of quality, freshness and tradition remains. Continued use of locally sourced, all natural ingredients, and an artisanal approach with from-scratch cooking will now be paired with an amazing, local craft beer & wine selection.
