Things are looking down for Fuddruckers in Houston right now. Three locations are temporarily closed, and one looks like it may not return. In our last Fuddsdate, we covered two Fuddruckers locations’ first “temporary” closure. Unfortunately, a third location, the former Fuddruckers adjacent to Luby’s on S. MacGregor, has recently closed its doors, at least temporarily. The Fuddruckers near Greenway Plaza, which has been closed since June, has had its doors and windows boarded up. Large signs have also been placed on both sides of the property, advertising it as “available.” The online listing mentions that a ground lease for two pad sites is being offered. The current tenant section is also blank, although this could simply be a mistake. The 290 location is reportedly still intact, albeit with plywood covering the door due to a broken pane of glass. At this point, it’s unclear what exactly the future holds for Fuddruckers, but in the meantime, a few locations in Houston are up to their original standards. The Fuddruckers in Memorial and Webster seem to be doing quite well compared to the rest of the bunch. The Memorial/Town & Country location has been franchised by Pappas since just before the breakup. On the other hand, the Webster location initially appeared to be under the control of Fuddruckers’ new owners but has since significantly rebounded in quality. While it’s unclear, my theory is the location was possibly picked up by the new owner of Luby’s, as the brands still crossover in many folk’s minds, and having a dead Fudds attached to a Luby’s wouldn’t end well.
