Our Name

At the turn of the century, “hay wire” was a farmer’s term for the light wire used to tightly bind bales of hay or straw. The wire had a tendency to whip into a wild and unruly tangle when it was cut, leading to our modern meaning of haywire: out of control—just like our burgers. 

Our Story

We opened our doors in July of 2012, as a husband-and-wife team, and we proudly remain a family owned and operated restaurant. We are committed to maximizing our use of organic produce 

and local ingredients, and minimizing our impact on the environment. Our beef is sourced from small farms committed to sustainable agriculture practices and preserving the rural landscape.

Haywire is proud to be the shoreline’s destination gourmet burger joint!
