Welcome to our new partner & the "Official Burger" of The Vintage Registry™

Stacks Image 1635

In the early 1990s, the BUBBA burger® was created by Walter “Bubba” Eaves. Bubba had a mission and a dream to create a perfect and juicy burger.

As Bubba says “he wanted to create a burger that he would be proud to serve to his friends at his home.”
Bubba invented a unique production method that allows for the BUBBA burger® to be cooked from a frozen state and still remain juicy and flavorful. He also decided that he would use only the highest quality meat in his burger. He refused to use any fillers or trimmings in his burger and, to ensure the highest possible quality, decided to use only whole muscle meat chucks in the BUBBA burger®. Since he was so proud of his creation he named his burger the BUBBA burger® and with these high standards the BUBBA burger® was born!
