Teddy's BB

How I heard of this place: It opened. We walked around Greenlake. We saw it. And then we ate it.

Type of cuisine: Teddy’s is not fast food, it is Fresh Food prepared to order.
Teddy’s Bigger Burgers got its start in the backyard cookouts of owners Ted & Rich. The two loved good burgers but couldn’t understand why there weren’t any fast food restaurants that offered the quality of their home cooked burgers in a quick service environment.

So Ted & Rich set out to create a restaurant that served the best quality burger in an energetic fast paced environment. After studying the simple menus of the original 1950’s burger joints, Ted & Rich decided to ‘reinvent the burger joint’ with a 50’s theme and a simple menu of burgers, fries & shakes.

The next year was spent developing recipes and finding companies that could supply the quality of products Teddy’s would insist on.

That brings us to what sets Teddy’s apart. Teddy’s uses only 100% fresh chilled ground chuck (no fillers or binders). Burgers are hand crafted daily and always charbroiled to order. Super Sauce is Teddy’s own sweet and tangy creation, not the usual thousand island dressing. Teddy’s Teriyaki Sauce is a traditional recipe made from scratch. Our produce and buns are the highest quality and are delivered fresh daily.

The first Teddy’s Bigger Burgers was opened on the 15th of April 1998 at the foot of Diamond Head. Our competitive advantage lies in an extreme focus on quality & customer service. Because all of our menu items are prepared to order, we do take a little longer. Our goal is to make it worth the wait.

What I ordered: While awaiting the last in our party to arrive, the four of us already gathered, hungry, started with large Umami Fries ($4.79),

large Tater Tots ($4.19),

and a large order of Cheese Fries ($4.79), of which I was so excited to partake, apparently, that I failed to snap a photo! Our main entrées included Teddy’s Original Burger Combo in the Big size ($9.59) with small Crispy Fries and a fountain drink for the purist in our midst, and the Big Lahaina Burger Combo ($9.59+$3.47) topped with pineapple, bacon, Swiss and jalapeños, Ranch Fries and a fountain soda for our other dining companion.

For my husband, the Kilauea Fire Burger Combo ($9.59+$2.78), a burger stacked with cheddar, onion rings, bacon and spicy Kilauea Fire BBQ Sauce (which was abundantly more sweet than spice).

and for me the Hawaii Kai Burger Combo ($9.59+$3.28) with pepper jack cheese, cajun sauce, teriyaki and bacon, also served with Crispy Fries and a fountain beverage.

Free, on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday comes a Kid’s Combo with order of two adult combos, so we got one for our Little, including a honey-battered Corn Dog and Crispy Fries (and fountain beverage) which my husband thoroughly enjoyed on his behalf.

What I loved: Fries and Tots! Yum! Between my husband’s burger and mind, mine was, by far, the better of the two! And stick with the Big ones, as they are easily able to satisfy even a large appetite!
