Black Angus

Outstanding “Buffalo and Bleu” burger at Black Angus! Made with buffalo sauce, blue cheese, shredded cabbage, Bleu ranch dressing and green onions. The whole thing was a hot mess but very tasty.


Richmond Bar & Grill

I dearly adore blue cheese with all things beef. Recently I tried the Blue Cheese Bacon Burger at Richmond Bar & Grill and it was outstanding!  Perfectly grilled hand-formed beef patty was topped with a liberal amount of blue cheese crumbles and crispy bacon that I could taste in every bite.  This burger really tasted as good as it looks!
RBG is a hole in the wall neighborhood bar on Richmond Street in Old Town El Segundo, just two blocks west of Main Street.  Such a super comfortable, welcoming and laid back vibe here.  Can’t wait to visit again next time I’m in town.

Way Point Saloon

Probably one of the most remarkable burger creations in Ramona, and my personal favorite, is the ‘Maple Bourbon Bacon Burger’ at Way Point Saloon. A half pound pure beef patty is seared on the grill then basted with a maple syrup/brown sugar/cayenne pepper/bourbon glaze. It all seeps into the meat while it finishes cooking and gets slightly caramelized on the edges. What sends this burger over the top has to be the mound of deep fried red onions & jalapeños! Outstanding flavor combinations going on here.

Boll Weevil

One of my favorite burgers at the Weev, called simply, “Stacked”! Two quarter pound steerburger patties, stacked with just bacon and cheddar cheese. It doesn’t get any better than this. What’s really nice is the thoughtful placement of bacon so you can taste it in every bite. I really dislike the criss-cross bacon setup you typically see at most burger joints.

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!
