Teddy's Story

Teddy's Bigger Burgers got its start in the backyard cookouts of owners Ted & Rich on the islands. 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 in Hawaii.

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.

Teddy's uses only quality 100% fresh chilled ground chuck (no fillers or binders). Burgers are hand crafted daily and always charbroiled and made 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 delivered fresh daily by our partner. 

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.
