HOUSTON - May 19, 2015 // PRNewswire // - Fuddruckers, a Texas-based heritage brand, debuts a new location at 2002 Wilshire Boulevard in Santa Monica today. The 3,366-square-foot fast casual restaurant with seating for 82 occupies a prime corner on 20th Street, just a block from Saint John's Health Center and minutes from the famed Santa Monica Pier. This is the seventh Fuddruckers in the Los Angeles area and eighteenth in California.
According to Peter Tropoli, Chief Operating Officer of Luby's, Inc., "We're excited to be expanding into this dynamic community with a highly trafficked site that is in close proximity to a variety of business and leisure destinations."
An engaging design scheme, which references Fuddruckers' classic, Americana origins, sets an inviting backdrop for a family gathering, work lunch or date night.
Since 1980, Fuddruckers has been obsessed with making the world happier, one great hamburger at a time. Grilled-to-order burgers feature always fresh and never frozen, 100% USDA premium-cut beef with no fillers or additives. Delicious, sesame-topped buns are baked from scratch on-site throughout the day to achieve the perfect combination of crisp crust and melt-in-your-mouth texture.
And while burgers are the signature, the engaging menu offers variety for many tastes with an array of sandwiches, platters and salads. No matter what they choose, customers can customize their meal with a trip to the legendary Build Your Own produce bar, which features fantastic fixings like sun-ripened tomatoes, lettuce, sliced onions, dill pickles, pico de gallo and classic cheese sauce.
