About Us

The first Fuddruckers opened in San Antonio, Texas, in 1980. The concept was born when our founder, Phil Romano, was unable to find a restaurant that served a great, fresh hamburger in a sophisticated, yet comfortable setting. That first restaurant is still in existence on Botts Lane in San Antonio. While our look has evolved, the Fuddruckers of today still delivers on the original promise of serving only the highest quality beef, served with made from scratch buns and garden fresh produce.

Fuddruckers 01

Over the years, Fuddruckers has evolved from a beer and burgers joint into a fun, fast-casual dining destination that focuses on great food and friendly, attentive guest service. The mainstay of our menu is still the hamburger, which we offer in 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, and one-pound options. For our adventurous guests, we offer a number of distinctive signature burgers as well, such as the Southwest Burger, garnished with pepper jack cheese, crispy bacon and freshly prepared guacamole, or the Swiss Melt burger, topped with sautéed mushrooms, onions and Swiss cheese. Beyond our signature entrée, we also offer a variety of chicken sandwiches, freshly tossed salads, steak sandwiches, hot dogs, kids' meals, shakes and bakery items. To further broaden our variety and appeal we also offer options like our Veggie Burger, Turkey Burger and Buffalo Burger.
