Meet the Chefs behind 4 Guys!
Viet and Tuan Lam, the culinary creators of the delicious menu and daily specials of 4 Guys Food Truck, have been long time food lovers and have always enjoyed sharing their dishes with friends and family—and now wish to share their passion for creating a mouth-watering fusion of Asian and American cuisine with you!
The Lam brothers were born and raised in Vietnam, and came to the United States when they were still young. They came to Kansas to rejoin family members that had previously moved to America, and they both graduated from Highland Park High School. Viet also attended and graduated from Washburn University. Both Viet and Tuan also gained their citizenship and have been proud American citizens and hardworking Topeka residents for over 20 years!
The main similarity that the Lam brothers have noticed between American and Vietnamese culture is the one thing that accompanies family get-togethers and celebrations—FOOD! No matter the occasion, whether it was the holiday season, family gatherings, or simply a weekend with friends, delectable food has been a constant companion and a beloved addition, turning every social event into a big celebration! The love of good friends and family coming together has gone hand-in-hand with flavorsome delicacies. They have brought this love of food and intertwined traditional American favorites—such as chicken wings and barbecue—with their own Vietnamese flair, creating delicious—and memorable—dishes that will make you want to get the whole family together to celebrate!
What began in January 2017 as a food truck serving downtown Topeka quickly grew into a crowd favorite! 4 Guys Bar & Grill was conceived after the ever-growing following that the food truck garnered. The brothers, after receiving numerous positive feedback from customers, a loyal following, and the increasing demand for more food truck appearances, decided to make the move to a permanent location!
The location search began in late 2017, and the Lam brothers spent months going to different locations throughout Topeka. They wanted a place that would allow for room to grow while remaining inviting and familiar to all of Topeka.
Brookwood Shopping center offered that opportunity! In July 0f 2018, after months of searching, the Lam brothers chose the space that was vacated by Boss Hawg's and Pigskin's in southwest Topeka. The location was both well-known and well-renowned as a popular location for Topekans to enjoy fantastic food and great drinks.
After a long summer of renovation, reconstruction, and remodeling, 4 Guys Bar & Grill opened its doors on October 1, 2018.
The Lam brothers are now able to share their passion of fusing Asian and American flavors with all of Topeka!
