Well, I found myself in one of those moments and there are a few foods I crave when I am hungover. Namely: greasy, salty, meaty, carby (If I were Snow White, those would be 4 of my 7 dwarves. The others would be sweet, fruity, and crunchy. And maybe boozey for an 8th).
Fuddruckers is one of those places that I think is a fabulous idea when I’m hungover. So I convinced Albany John to go over to Wolf Road and get a bite with me.
He got a 1# burger combo meal to test out the waters and see if the 2# challenege would be a viable contest for him. After adding some cheese, the combo was a little over $11.
You get some fried potato wedges and a drink (domestic beer or soda) with the combo, plus a free cookie.
That burger was massive. Albany John could only eat half of it, but he said he’d rather have ordered the 1# burger and only eaten half than eaten a 1/2 pound burger.
One of the interesting things is that they’ll cook your burger to order at Fuddruckers. I went with medium rare, which resulted in a juicy and fine burger. Overall, I thought it didn’t taste like beef, the meat kind of mushed together on one side (see the left part of the above pic) for a weird meatloaf texture, but other than that the boar flavor wasn’t crazy and overwhelming. Just porky-ish.
I managed to finish my burger and nab some of Albany John’s fries, too. I was way better, but wayyyyy stuffed after that one. I saved the cookie for later.
Overall, I think Fuddruckers is a fun novelty with serviceable food. It’s nothing that’ll blow your socks off, but it’ll do.
