The Fuddruckers in Mission Valley is located in the same center as Borders, Kings, etc., in Mission Valley. Because of its location, parking is very scant, especially on the weekends. The location itself is pretty well laid out inside the restaurant in terms of flow of people, with indoor and outdoor (covered) seating; however, during peak times it is really impossible to get a table at all and you are left wandering around circling and circling hoping for a table to open up before your food is ready. The tables themselves are quite close together, making it a bit of an unpleasant atmosphere, especially if you have children or a larger family you need to find seating together for.
The burgers themselves are excellent with toppings you add yourself at a condiment bar. The drinks are generous and refillable. The rolls/bread for the burgers is obviously fresh baked, soft and delicious. Even the kids meal hot dog, not typically something much effort is put into at all, comes on a fresh baked bun, and can have a side of fresh fruit, making that into a little healthier option. Their baked beans are truly awesome with some type of meat in them and a smokey flavor. The fresh fries are wedges and seasoned with salt. Visit the condiment bar for a very wide selection of dips for your fries.
Overall I would recommend it for the food but if you dislike crowds stick to off times to visit this location.
