Fuddruckers

American diner serving giant burgers in Dubai 12 Reviews

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2008

This American burger joint is a good pit stop for lunch if you’re in the area. In fact, you can whizz in and out in 30 minutes. Whether you want to tuck into a half pounder with Angus beef, melted cheese, sautéed mushrooms and grilled onions, or one of the chicken quesadillas, you’ll find the food run-of-the-mill, but perfect for a quick fill.

Fuddruckers is surprisingly good for vegetarians, the wrap with veggies, guacamole and sour cream is a pleasure to devour and, these days, you can substitute the meat burgers with a veggie option. Popular at lunchtime with a mixture of office workers and mums with small children, there’s plenty of space in this relaxed restaurant.

Spread out in the comfy booths with your workmates and order sweet onion rings and milkshakes to slurp on before the main event arrives. The portions are huge; great if you’re trying to fill up on carbs after a night out, but not so much if you’ve got to get back to your desk and look mildly awake.

We’d dispute the menu’s claim that Fuddruckers has been serving up the ‘world’s greatest hamburgers for 25 years’, but we’d hazard a guess that they’ll still be around in years to come enthusiastically dishing up above average fare.

I went in this restaurant last night for a quick bite to eat with a friend - for a restaurant that is 'famous' for it's burgers, we were highly disappointed! We asked for our burger to be medium well and it came out covered in blood and was very raw!!
The waitress also took the plate away without asking if we were finished, which we weren't. We weren't offered more drinks and felt like the staff were rushing us to finish. All in all not the greatest experience!

This was my worst restaurant experience in the UAE EVER! After being to many places in the past 5 months and being happy that I was never food poisoned in my life before, I completely lost my cool when I got sick to the stomach and ended up with sever diarrhea for 3 full days after ordering my burger medium-well.

I will NEVER EVER go there and I honestly hope they close down and leave!

if your craving for a big juicy burger or a mammoth steak this is the place to be .Although its menu isnt as lengthy as those at TGI and chillies, its good enough to compete with american casual dining standards. Coming to the food, its a no-disappointment factor .infact i found it to be worth the money . the burgers ar cooked to your liking and so are the steaks . the staff are friendly and the service is quick.
love the idea of the open sider bar with a range of suces to accomidate them. loved the place soo much that i visited 4 times last month.
I would recommend fuddruckers to all my mates .Going back for suree....!!

Ok burgers, nothing special in my opinion.
Customer service was absolutely shocking, the waitress took my drink away without asking before it was finished, then another waiter took my girlfriends plate before she was finished her meal. They were more interested in selling us dessert.
Would not go back, so many other choices for burgers, I think Fudrukkers is highly overpriced for what you get.

I have been to Fudrockers many times. Their Garhood branch is the one I like the most. They burgers speically - Southwest and The work - are amazing and tasty. However their steak is not good. Their fresh Salad is also very impressive.

About Service, I am always satisfied with their quality of service in DFC and Garhood.

UAE, Dubai, Garhoud Str.
Date of visit: 16/7/2011

I was invited to the restaurant by a friend, he told me that fine burgers are served ...

That came true, but it wasn't what i was pleased by the most.
i was honestly speechlessly grateful for the teamwork serving in the restaurant, thanking them for there warm welcoming " Shiela K." and Wonderful Service "Cecile J. M." .

The logic decision about good food will be present in my next visit, but the strong emotional aspect and respect for the staff will be the driver behind. The kindness and gentleness of there Business Women & Men representing the good Service is superb.

My office is pretty close to this Al Garhoud Outlet, I often go there for lunches during my busy schedule but I always find this place endulging best service, value for money meal. I strongly recommend to try the food, the add on's you can do the burger add sauces you know what I mean. Sometimes even in evening I hangout with my friends to this place and find it amazing. The simple and the best thing the food and service.. yeahh and yummy juicy burgers... :)

I went to this restaurant after hearing soo many good reviews. However, I was bitterly disappointed. We happened to go whilst there was a birthday party on, kids were running around all over the restaurant and screaming, the staff were helpless to contain them in the designated party area. Then the food was a disaster, my burger was huge in size but soo greasy and heavy that it was uncomfortable to eat even though it was meant to be a grilled chicken option. My partner found his classic burger to be tasteless and infact left most of his which is surprising as he loves burgers. So on the whole I would not go again, I clearly did not find this place value for money.
