We rated only three stars because of the food that came from the kids' menu. We loved the burgers but hated the chicken nuggets that we ordered for our two kids. The chicken nuggets that we ordered were really questionable. They tasted like fish fingers and store bought lowest quality frozen chicken nuggets- very surprising for a restaurant that makes...

I'm kinda a burger fan, and like to post about the best. This place is one of the best. I had a perfectly cooked medium Guac burger with all the fixins that you really couldn't beat, other than the $12 price tag. My wife had a blue cheese (pictured on their website) and she was raving about it. We both... More

This restaurant is closed for renovations. Was excited to eat here and drove there and searched for limited parking only to find they were closed. Very disapointed. Website did not say they were closed. Bad business.

We went to several places to eat while visiting Pacific Beach and La Jolla and we can honestly say this was our best meal.

This place has pretty good food and is located right on Mission Blvd. They have pretty good beer on tap and good burgers. I really like their steak plate too - it comes with shoestring fries and a little salad. My friend also LOVES the lamb burger if you're inclined to eat lamb.

Popped in here for lunch....as recommended by friends. We both opted for the same burger which we don't normally do. They have a lunchtime special which included fries and a beer. The burger itself was one of the best I have had. It was strange that it didnt come in a normal burger bun, but that just made it more... More

Great food, fun atmosphere! Not your typical burger place. Higher end ingredients but not intimidating. We went on a busy Saturday afternoon. Service was a little slow but staff was friendly even though they were busy!

Had dinner here while visiting San Diego, busy beach bar with a laid back vibe. They had good drinks, including a fresh take on a Moscow mule which was delicious. They also had the best sweet potato fries I've ever had! Good service, we would go back!
