Fuddruckers?


I forgot I have a few more Midwest gems to share. This place called Fuddruckers, was the joint when I was a kid. The place I use to go to is no longer standing but my dad found one way out of town, while we were doing some drywall work with him.

The place looks totally different than the one did in the early 80s, but it smelled exactly the same. Back in the day it was all stainless steal and felt like a warehouse now, it looks more like a Red Robin. But the their food concept is easy and its their trademark....FREEDOM.

You pick your burger: turkey, chicken, veggie, fish or beef. They cook it up and let you put what you want on it yourself. I had the turkey burger which was hands down one of the best turkey burgers I've had. They cook everything made to order so its fresh and hot. You get the choices served up salad bar style...

which includes the best cheese sauce...


L. had the beef burger with grilled onions
The menu has expanded to include so much stuff you can get overwhelmed. I remember having some pretty basic choices when I was a kid, now you can get down on nachos, salads and dessert as well. This place is a chain and they are scattered around the US. If you see one, you should try the cheese sauce. Who the hell doesn't like cheese sauce?

I haven't heard the name fuddruckers in probably 20 years. What the fuck is a fuddrucker and why does it smell like that! Like pepper and incense with the smell of rendering animal fat. can you still see them grinding beef and shit or is that in my head!

that was a seriously bomb ass burger. i liked it's all-american motif but why were the booths based on the Beatles & the Stones?

I LOVED that place as a kid. And it did look all stainless steel back in the day. I seem to remember the only choices were what wieght pattie you wanted and non of that other stuff.

I'm a sucker for a fixin's bar, as i prefer about 90x the amount of pickles then your average burger master.

And it felt like you were getting to say fuck when you were a kid, so that added additional appeal.
