We’re sorry to say we didn’t open in 2021, but we are definitely going to in early spring of 2022!

Achatz Burgers has had a challenging year but we are confident our new drive through location will help us make up for everything we lost. We can’t wait to start serving up the best burger in Michigan again and get our team members back to work! Stay tuned to our Facebook and website for our opening date. Once we are closer to completing the build out we will let you know! Just as you may have experienced delays in your home improvement projects, we have faced months and months of setbacks with the demand of ours and capital. We are waiting on electrical contractors, plumbing, and finishing up our sign and then we can open up our new drive through. Thanks to our loyal customers for supporting us through these challenging times. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Look below to see the progress we have made on our new location!

Rink and Margaret Achatz opened up their first restaurant in Davison, MI in 1964 over 50 years ago. Their second restaurant was in Marine City, and in 1969 Rink purchased his dream location on the river in Algonac, Michigan. Rink opened the restaurant for a short time, before unexpectedly passing away, leaving Margaret Jean to take over the restaurant, successfully from 1970 to 2013. She specialized in high quality, homemade meals, from made from scratch breakfasts to fresh ground hamburgers, she had the best burger around. Rinks favorite meal was Burgers, and he passed that love of burgers down to his son Russell.

Russell created Achatz burgers concentrating on his love of burgers, creating and simplifying a process to serve the best tasting burgers throughout America. Achatz burgers has won every burger competition they ever competed in. They’ve been a favorite of the Detroit Tigers for nine years. Russell looks forward to moving back to his hometown of Algonac Michigan where it all began. In a drive-through location that will be a fun clean safe environment for customers and employees alike.
