Our History

We Believe in Two Things – Burgers and Happiness

Like many great businesses, the inspiration for Teddy’s Burger Joint came from the needs of the owners. The owners grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana and craved a restaurant experience unlike anything they have grown up to know — customers and families want to enjoy the indoor experience of a restaurant in comfortable outdoor environments. Families with children want to be able to enjoy time with other adults while their children play safely with their own friends, all in an atmosphere that is kid friendly but not kid focused. This would be a place where families with kids could mix with younger and older groups of adults without kids, and everyone would feel equally relaxed and at ease. Everything worked together–from the simple and comfortable decor, to the indoor and outdoor elements of the restaurant, to the menu.

They embarked on a quest to create a restaurant where each customer could enjoy a rustic look, up-to-date technology, savory menu items, a large assortment of beer and superior service quality. Burgers provided the ideal focus for the menu, and they decided to serve this American icon in a variety of classic, as well as gourmet, versions. Thus, our mantra was born: “We believe in two things – Burgers and Happiness”.

Teddy’s Burger Joint

Teddy’s Burger Joint is based on the desire to create a place where a wide range of customers can enjoy our quality food, watch a game, and have a drink while the kids enjoy our playroom full of chalkboards and movies. Parents can see their children and feel comfortable knowing their kids are enjoying themselves just as much as the adults. With occasional live acoustic music inside and out, Teddy’s is a sure choice for an unforgettable experience whether you have children or not.

The casual, comfortable and rustic environment of Teddy’s Burger Joint makes it a great place to dine alone, with family or friends, or with the whole team. Our success is directly linked to great customer service, generous portions of quality food, affordable pricing and the ability to create an atmosphere that is enjoyable, relaxing, clean, and, ultimately, unforgettable.
