HOUSTON, Texas, May 22, 2012 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers® has reached a new milestone in Houston with the debut of its 16th hometown restaurant featuring premium, fast casual fare. The north side location opened last week at 7724 Louetta Road in the Spring area. Fuddruckers has been grilling the "World's Greatest Hamburgers®" in Texas for more than 30 years and now has 54 stores around the state.
The 3,700-square-foot space has undergone a major renovation to create a fitting backdrop for Fuddruckers' always fresh and never frozen 100% USDA premium-cut beef, which is cooked to order, with no fillers or additives. The dining room seats 64, and a covered patio with two, large screen TVs can accommodate 52. The corporate-owned restaurant serves as a showcase for Fuddruckers' dynamic, new interior scheme that pays homage to the chain's signature roadhouse look, while streamlining the popular design for today's more sophisticated tastes.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer, "We're excited to be expanding in our hometown of Houston, where our loyal customer base has made us one of the city's top fast casual destinations."
A Fuddruckers' signature is its delicious, sesame-topped buns that are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Guests can also customize their order at the legendary Build Your Own® produce bar, which offers a fantastic array of fixings, including sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and Fuddruckers cheese sauce. In addition to customizing their burgers, guests can put a personal spin on their refreshments with the Coca-Cola Freestyle® system, which boasts more than 100 soda flavors.
