Five Guys

Probably one of the best fast food burgers I’ve ever put in my mouth!

Grub Burger Bar

Outstanding Cheesy Bacon Front Porch at Grub Burger Bar in Carmel Mountain Ranch!

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers

Without a doubt, Freddy’s is my new favorite fast food restaurant! My first time out I tried their Original Double Patty Melt! Two outstanding steak burger patties, Swiss cheese & grilled onions on toasted rye bread. I think the biggest standout for me are their remarkably thin patties. It makes for the perfect charred surface area to meat ratio.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Outstanding BBQ bacon cheeseburger with excellent, crispy onion rings at Nuevo Grill!

Eastbound Bar & Grill

Recently tried Eastbound Bar & Grill in beautiful downtown Lakeside! We absolutely fell in love with this place! I really like a good loaded fries type dish so we went in for one of their “Skillet Fries” creations. This is the Carne Asada Chipotle Cheese. Fries blanketed with melted cheddar jack, chipotle sauce and carne asada. Outstanding! Also shown below is The Rodeo burger. Fatty half pounder with cheese, bacon, BBQ sauce and two crispy onion rings. And you can’t go wrong with 26 beers on tap! There’s something for everyone here.

Jack in the Box

This so-called Brisket Burger at JIB was surprisingly good!

Marinade on Main

This stunning burger is one of the best things I’ve put in my mouth at Marinade on Main! Made with a perfectly grilled hand formed beef patty, blanketed with melted cheese; crispy carnitas; pico de gallo; and guacamole. Outstanding!

Boll Weevil

Super delicious pastrami burger at the Weev!

Red Robin Gourmet Burgers

Such a forgettable burger I can’t even remember what it was! Not sure what I was thinking considering I have access to many outstanding craft burgers right here in Ramona.

Marinade on Main

Lately I have been enjoying some great burgers in Ramona from some of our town’s well-known establishments/bars. Of all my visits to Marinade On Main though I’ve never tried their burger, until recently.

I ordered their “Signature Burger” and it was just outstanding! Farm raised chuck angus beef patty, cheddar, onion bacon jam, arugula, tomato, pickle and garlic aioli. Comes with hand-cut fries or pasta salad, $14.50. A farm fresh egg, avocado or bacon can be added to any burger or sandwich.

What stands out about this burger is its simplicity. The beef really shines through it all and it’s very clear to me that Marinade is using beef of a remarkable quality. From my understanding it’s a grass fed angus beef from a prairie farm in northern California.

The onion bacon jam is really good! Slightly sweet and smokey tasting. What comes on the burger was difficult for me to discern on its own so I’d recommend requesting some extra on the side.

Bun was an excellent bakery brioche style that was lightly toasted and stayed in tact throughout. Unfortunately the bun circumference was slightly larger than the beef patty. I like to see a more proportional bun/beef ratio.

Tremendous job from all the staff! I always see everyone working so hard and it’s very evident to me how much pride they take in the restaurant.
