Though Teddy's Bigger Burgers is a classic American burger joint, the flavors are a bit different than you might expect. That's because the Oahu-based franchise draws from both American and Polynesian cuisine to create a range of customizable burgers. They start with a choice of bun—potato, wheat, or lettuce wrap—and then layer it with ground-chuck patties that weigh in at 5, 7, or 9 ounces. From there, they incorporate any combination of toppings, including options as varied as slaw, grilled pineapple, seasoned hash browns, and avocado. The staff also serves a roster of specialty burgers in flavors known to work together without a workplace intervention, such as the Volcano burger with jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, and Kilauea barbecue sauce, or the Bacado with bacon, cheddar, and avocado. They complement these burgers and fish, chicken, veggie, and pastrami sandwiches with fried sides and hand-scooped shakes.
