Boll Weevil 

The venerable Steerburger at the Weev is hard to beat!  Especially when you add a few jalapeño slices.  Their great family meal deals are rounded out by a nice order of homely nachos.

Best value in Ramona!  Thursday night AYCE fish fry at the Weev!

Boll Weevil

All you can eat fish fry at The Weev is still the best deal in Ramona, every Thursday 5-8pm! We enjoyed their iconic weekly special recently and I have a few observations. You’ve seen me review this dish ad nauseam over the years so I’ll just stick to last night.The fish (fresh battered pollock) seems to be cut into smaller portions. The initial serving is noticeably more conservative in size. Fortunately though, being AYCE, more is right around the corner.

I dearly adore their wooden bowl salads and always get blue cheese dressing. Last night it was obvious the blue cheese had changed and not for the better. It has a noticeably more tangy taste and visually appears somewhat loose and unappealing. I asked the server about it and they have unfortunately changed to a gluten free version. Not sure why, but I’ll be trying a different dressing next time.  

Again, such an amazing value at only $7.99 ($5.99 with coupon).

Another outstanding trip to The Weev last weekend! This time I tried their Patty Melt. Made with a 1/2 lb steerburger with a ton of grilled onions and American cheese on grilled rye bread (not marbled) w/ fries ($10.79).I’m not a fan of processed cheese so I subbed out the American for Swiss cheese. This is one of the best Patty Melts I’ve had. Huge, well cooked, hot & juicy beef patty. Highly recommended.

Living in SoCal I can have great Mexican food anytime, so I had no problem celebrating last Cinco de Mayo with all you can eat fish fry at Boll Weevil! Still the best value in Ramona every Thursday night. Only $7.99 ($5.99 with coupon), includes great AYCE fish, fries and salad in a wooden bowl. 5:00-8:30 pm, while it lasts…  We always love visiting The Weev with the outstanding service, good beers on draft, excellent hand-crafted milkshakes, etc.

More often than not, I need to bring a change of clothes to the Weev.  Then take two showers when I get home!  You can see why here with their outstanding “Cowboy” Burger and The Messy.

Boll Weevil last night was sporting a new menu insert featuring an entire line of “Un-Boll Weevil-able” burgers! These are actually a compilation of their monthly burger specials over the years, all in one spot. Now all available, all the time!The Weev has stacked up some amazing creations here – all hovering around 9 -13 dollars (served with fries). There’s about 8 or 9 to choose from. I definitely want to try at least half of them…

I had the “Red White & the Blue”, $12.99. Made with a half pound steerburger with bacon, bell pepper, blue cheese crumbles, grilled onions, lettuce & mater. This came out looking like a hot mess! I swear I had to take two showers after we got home. It’s made with their standard institutional, bottom shelf bun, but at least it was fresh. There’s definitely a lot going on here, but the beef patty is what remains at the forefront throughout. I had at least two-thirds grilled onion taste, but the blue cheese and bell peppers seemed to be fairly aloof. And the bacon was really only discernible in one or two bites.  

I’m not gonna sugar coat it. I would certainly order this again, but for $13, wish that a little more care would be taken in crafting this monstrosity. Along with a more prominent bacon note and a top-shelf bun.

Gail had “The Messy” made with nacho cheese, BBQ sauce, fries, bacon, etc. It was a monster!

Tried the Pastrami Burger at The Weev recently and it was excellent! Made with a 1/4 lb patty, a mound of thick sliced, lean hot pastrami, and two slices of melty swiss cheese. Includes fries (I subbed rings) for only $9.79…
