About this business
From Our Editors
Michael Sobon appreciates nostalgia for good ol’ Americana—and a tasty old-fashioned burger. That’s why he created Pudsters, a family-friendly restaurant named in honor of his beloved English bulldog, Puddy. Old-fashioned burgers (made of 100% fresh, never-frozen angus beef) and frankfurters—known as Pudsters Puppies—rule the menu. Paired with shoestring fries, crispy onion rings, and hand-spun milkshakes, these burgers and frankfurter meals recall the 1950s and preview the 2050s, when all food will taste like a milkshake. The team takes into account considerations of 2013 citizens, too, accommodating vegetarians with portobello mushroom burger—a fresh one that illustrates the eatery's aversion to processed ingredients—or grilled cheese. Technically, the grilled cheese is part of the kid’s menu, but Pudster’s friendly staff won’t raise an eyebrow.
