Went there for a birthday. Great food, great customer service and beautiful art! Only thing is that signage was slightly poor off street so be aware as you look for this restaurant. Otherwise, well worth going especially on a budget!

Whilst trying to navigate San Diego Burger week, we decided we must try their bad breath garlic burger and fries special. It was exactly that, large, lots of flavor with garlic, horseradish, blue cheese and onions. The fries were hand made with some potato skin still on (a good thing), they even adapted the Angus beef for one of us... More

Service was terrible, friend was in town from Santa Fe and wanted a good burger so we tried Boomerangs. It was close to our house, but we had not tried it before; wish we had. Their idea of meatloaf is a burned burger. We told them we were not happy with the late service or the quality of the cooking,... More

A friend took me to this burger restaurant/sports bar for the first time recently. Their specialty is a ‘build-your-own’ burger. You can find the multitude of choices on their online menu. I ordered a ½ lb angus burger, with red onions & kalamata olives to be mixed in with the meat & sautéed mushrooms on top. I also selected Muenster... More

Neighborhood attraction, Boomerangs, has a great idea going - Be the "Cold Stone" of burgers. Unfortunately, after mixing in those yummy selections to the meat, it takes a bit longer to cook. And, on occasion, we've been served a near raw burger. Oh, they'll make it right. But, why not cook it right the first time? On the up side,... More

So my birthday rolled around again. You’d think that by now, they would just stop coming! Nevertheless, my friend was anxious to treat me to a birthday lunch at a place called Boomerangs Gourmet Burger Joint in Clairemont. I had been wanting to try this place for ages, but never made it there until today. We got to meet the... More

A group of us visited Boomerangs for dinner. I was excited as my boss said this place has great burgers! I will say the burger was o.k. But there was too many other distractors that dimmed my view and I will probably not return. From the beginning to the end the staff seemed overwhelmed and disorganized, nice enough and all... More

They call it the "Bad Breath Burger": Black angus beef stuffed with bleu cheese crumbles, onions and roasted red peppers. Topped with grilled fresh mushrooms. Pretty darn good, though they could've smashed the patty flatter so that it covered the entire diameter of the bun(see photo). I got the $10 Burger Week deal with garlicfries and a cold pint of...

I've been at Boomerangs a couple times within the last year, but the most recent visit was with a couple of friends and my partner. We all unanimously agreed that the burgers were exceptional, and that the hosts were top-notch. My food came out in a timely manner and just the way I wanted it, and both our hosts were... More

We recently revisited this place. Still great food. Drinks were not quite as good as in the past. They were a little short handed, but thought under the circumstances he did a great job. One couple in our party of eight was not as happy. They didn't get their food in time, and was extremely unhappy about it. The waiter... More
