BYO burger chain Fuddruckers has closed its last remaining District location.
Popville posted a picture of a sign at the Chinatown restaurant (734 Seventh Street NW) urging customers to visit existing Fuddruckers outposts in Maryland and Northern Virginia.
The family-friendly restaurant — which caters to burger enthusiasts by offering assorted proteins (beef, turkey, elk, and other game animals), myriad toppings (including its iconic cheese sauce), and numerous specialty offerings — used to dot the local dining landscape.
A spot in neighboring Alexandria, Virginia, closed during summer 2013. A popular location in Annandale, Virginia, shut down in spring 2012. And a Dupont Circle shop, which now houses rapidly expanding New York burger chain Shake Shack, shuttered in spring 2010. For now, Fuddruckers continues to operate restaurants in Annapolis, Maryland; Brandywine, Maryland; Rockville, Maryland; Silver Spring, Maryland; and Woodbridge, Virginia.
Per the Washington Business Journal, the last D.C. Fuddruckers is destined to become a co-working space/casual eatery cooked up by financial institution Capital One.
