Have gone there twice and enjoyed it both times. Service was fast and friendly. The parking lot is always full. This restaurant has been here a long time and we had to check it out after moving back to Ramona. The food is reasonable priced. I couldn't believe the size of the hamburgers. You won't go away hungry.

Our family comes to Boll Weevil whenever we can. Husband always gets a craft beer and burger. I get a super lean burger with cheese and no bun. Kids get kids meals. Service is always always good. Those waiters work hard. Frings are really skimpy and not worth the money. Better off to get a basket of each. But the... More

Boll Weevils were one of my favorite hangouts in my college days. Most have disappeared since. This one in Ramona is a rare survivor. Why? It isn't fancy or quiet. Their burgers are traditional Boll weevil - good, big, not fantastic. It is a hangout place. Tables can be set for small or large groups. Pool tables are a flash... More

Good deal on a good burger. It's a chain restaurant so it's a pretty standard burger. The service in Ramona is "down-home good!" That's what makes it great instead of just good. :)

Admittedly I love a good burger, but this Boll Weevil is so much more than that. They have a pretty wide variety of menu selections they could satisfy most anybody's cravings. Yes the hamburgers are fantastic, and I don't care what anybody says these are the best burgers in Ramona! One of the things that really sets Boll Weevil apart... More

We are visiting family in Ramona from Williams AZ. They took us here for late lunch. The server Rhonda was very good and the burgers big and great. The kids love the game machines and there is a nice atmosphere. Definitely will return

Came up to Ramona from San Diego for a spot of wine tasting in this up and coming wine region and stopped here for a late lunch. Very friendly service, good food (the pastrami sandwich is very tasty, as are the sweet potato chips) served with a minimum of fuss. The atmosphere was also more authentic than you would find...

I grew up at this franchise and there are only a handful left in San Diego. The burgers and buns are fresh and generous and you get a tray at your table so you can do your own condiments, etc. They have big schooners of beer and the BEST ice cream homemade shakes/malts!!!

This is also a fun place to eat. You will always see someone you know. We like the way you can put on your burger what you want from the tray. A ways out of town, but worth the drive.

This is a hamburger haven! Dont expect fancy, dont expect much other than GREAT food. Kind of run down, but the kids love this and Ramona is old time San Diego county.
