ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A pair of Rockford business owners decide after enough hungry diners stopped in at their first restaurant, they should open up a second one.
Buddy's Burgers opened at the beginning of February. The burger joint is located at 6551 E. Riverside and is owned by the same people who run Chubby Guy's BBQ just a few doors down. Buddy's burgers offers made to order burgers with nearly any topping you could imagine. The inside is decked out in Chicago sports memorabilia to give the spot a laid back atmosphere.
"You can make whatever burger you want, it starts off with two patties, if you want 10, we can do it. If you want every condiment on your burger, we can do that too. It's a great place to come. You don't have to worry about the kids, we love children. It's all about the family and we love the community out there," says Lisa Wauchope, wife of owner Tim Wauchope.
Buddy's Burgers starts serving lunch at 11am and is open until 8 pm six days a week.
