The first Fuddruckers opened in San Antonio, Texas in 1980. Phil Romano created it, because he couldn't find a place to get a great, fresh hamburger. The first restaurant, #001, is still in existence right on Botts Lane in San Antonio. However, the Fuddruckers of today is much different than that 1980 restaurant.

Fuddruckers operates and franchises about 250 fast-casual restaurants, mostly under the Fuddruckers banner, which specialize in made-to-order hamburgers. The company also owns the Koo Koo Roo chain of poultry restaurants, which it bought from beleaguered Prandium in late 2003. Fuddruckers was founded 1980 by restaurateur Phil Romano, who also started Romano's Macaroni Grill (now owned by Brinker International), and acquired eight years later by Bryce King and Michael Cannon.

I've been unable to find the origin of the name.
