— Our history —
Astro Burgers is a locally owned charbroiled burger restaurant started in Utah in 1982 by John and Soula Lyhnakis. Greek immigrants, John and Soula originally learned the business running restaurants in Los Angeles, California. In 1982 they moved to Utah for better business opportunity and to raise their growing family. In June of that year the first Astro Burgers was opened with John's cousin Angelo Tsoutsounakis. In 1986 the couple opened their now flagship location on 6800 South State. John and Soula's three sons, Vasili, George and Michael grew up in the business and helped their parents open two more stores, one in South Jordan in 2002 and another in Draper in 2006. Now you can typically find one or more family members at any given location always ready to greet their customers and friends and to offer the quality and service Astro Burgers has been known for these past 35 years.
