About us


Our Story

Started in 2012, Bushfire Kitchen is a local family owned-and-operated restaurant. It was founded by two cousins, a chef and an entrepreneur. Working together, they wanted to create a restaurant they’d bring their family to; something with healthy choices, quality ingredients, and a reasonable price. Having both lived in Australia, South Africa, Canada, and now Southern California, they brought an eclectic taste and a passion for service to their new restaurant. Temecula was home to the first Bushfire, commonly known in the community as Bushfire Grill. Quickly the local residents came to know us for top-quality healthy comfort food served quickly and affordably.
