David Sr. Circa 1957
What makes David's Burgers so delicious? And who is the Butcher Boy?
Though the name David’s Burgers may be a fairly new name to you, it’s actually rooted in a deep family history of restauranteurs, tradition and craftsmanship. David Alan Bubbus created David’s Burgers as a tribute to his father, David Bubbus Sr., who had become a master butcher at the age of sixteen. Mr. Bubbus Sr. grew up in Central Arkansas and began his career in the meat industry at the age of five working for Johnny Jacobs Meat Market in North Little Rock. He managed his first restaurant, the JaMar in Pine Bluff, at the age of nineteen in 1963 and opened his own restaurant, El Matador, in Pine Bluff, Arkansas in 1967. For over half a century, Mr. Bubbus Sr. has been instrumental in developing numerous restaurants, restaurant chains and even franchises (such as Chicken Country) throughout Arkansas while bringing his knowledge, passion and insistence of quality to the plates of millions of patrons. David Bubbus Sr. is the Butcher Boy.
David’s Burgers is founded on the knowledge and principles of David Bubbus Sr. along with the traditions and craftsmanship found in master butcher shops. The black and white pictures you see on the walls are our family pictures. They’re our way of welcoming you into our home and we hope they will take you back to a time when things were simple and straightforward, which is what we’re all about. We are the only hamburger restaurant with beef that is handcut from US Choice Chuck and ground for that days use. You can see our US Choice Chuck displayed proudly in a nostalgic butcher case at our entrance. We never include trimmings, fillers or other inferior beef by-products. The foundation of our traditional hamburger is simply incredible beef with the highest standard of quality control. Our fries are hand cut potatoes made fresh throughout the day. There’s an amazing amount of passion and detail that goes into our food. It’s our hope that you have an extraordinary experience with excellent service and we sincerely thank you for being our guest!
