About Fuddruckers: America’s “World’s Greatest Hamburgers” was founded as Freddie Fuddruckers in 1980 by Philip J. Romano in San Antonio Texas. He started the chain because he believed the “world needed a better hamburger.” Now Fuddruckers is coming to the world and we are seeking area licensees in selected countries. Fuddruckers offers large hamburgers in which the meat is ground fresh on-site and buns are baked on the premises. Our hamburgers and other dishes are offered with “lots of fresh sliced tomatoes, onions, lettuce and vats of cheese sauce.” Our customers top their own burgers with fresh produce and condiments.
