Badas Burgers

Food trucks seem to be all the rage lately; kind of like Birria in SoCal. An absolute standout in this particular culinary arena on wheels happens to be Badas Burgers! One of the food groups I dearly adore is the craft artisan burger. You know, the kind that has to be served with a drop cloth. Well, Badas Burgers food truck does not disappoint. In fact, they set the standard! Unfortunately, like many other small businesses right now, they have had to close temporarily due to staffing shortages. I certainly wish them all the best and look forward to enjoying another one of their fine burgers.

Islands Fine Burgers & Drinks

Excellent “Bleunami” burger at Islands in Carmel Mountain Ranch! Blue cheese dressing, lettuce, mater, red onion and blue cheese crumbles. Despite the sloppy construction, it tasted great. Paired nicely with an order of their exquisite Truffle Fries.

Grub Burger Bar

Excellent “You’re My Boy Blue” burger at Grub Burger Bar in Carmel Mountain Ranch!

Way Point Saloon

Exquisite “Bacon & Bleu” burger with fries at Way Point Saloon in Ramona, CA!

Way Point Saloon

I just have to say, the outdoor seating affair at Way Point Saloon is really well done! Numerous high-tops spread out in a semi-enclosed tent thing. Provided the perfect wind break and 100% shade. Most important to me was the stability of the table. Rock solid considering I was in a parking lot. Not wobbly at all. Service the entire time was fast, friendly and thorough! It’s always a pleasure eating here and enjoying a couple libations. I’m pretty sure they sport the largest draft beer selection in Ramona.
I ordered “The Rancher” which is something I haven’t had here in about 5 years. Smoked cheddar, bacon, onion rings and a tangy, somewhat spicy BBQ sauce – that’s it! Only $14.95 (plus modest ‘rona surcharge). Includes your choice of side; I always get their delicious beer battered fries. Today reminded me why I haven’t ordered The Rancher in 5 years. After eating this I had to take two showers and then lay down. This time though the burger seemed to be more thoughtfully constructed. I’m thinking the cook might have a degree in structural engineering or perhaps is a veteran of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. I appreciated how the onion rings were concentrically stacked. At any rate, I highly recommend this one as well as their Maple Bourbon Bacon Burger or Bacon ’N Bleu. All outstanding choices.

Richmond Bar & Grill

Outstanding pastrami burger at Richmond Bar & Grill in El Segundo, CA!

Haunted Hamburger

Haunted Hamburger seems to be one of the more popular restaurants in Jerome, AZ. The views here are absolutely stunning, that I can tell you! I ordered the “Haunted Burger”. The presentation was quite shambolic but it was very tasty. Also enjoyed a nice, cold local Hefeweizen.

Wendy’s

Excellent Pretzel Bacon Pub Double at Wendy’s in Ramona!

Way Point Saloon

WPS recently offered this great burger special know as the Cali Burger. Very similar to the thin patty, double style burger like you’d find at In & Out. Included lettuce, mater, onion, American cheese, sauce, etc. It was really tasty and very popular in Ramona. I don’t think they’re still offering it though.

Junction 52 Bar & Grill

Outstanding Diablo Burger at Junction 52 in Santee!
