Tank’s Bar & Grill

Tank’s is an institution in downtown Dayton. Filled with salt of the earth locals and a trippy vibe with some great food. I had an outstanding Reuben sammich and cup of delicious chili.

Meat Monsters Grill

Excellent Panko crusted fried chicken sammich at MMG in Ramona! The chicken was perfectly cooked, moist, tender and hot. The panko crust was nicely seasoned and crispy. I don’t have to tell you how big and generous the size was. Just look at that beautiful photo. It was quite a bit to handle but I plowed through. Krinkle cut fries were hot & crispy. Remarkable meal at an affordable price.


These little Crispy Chicken BLT things at Wendy’s are super tasty! Great alternative to a burger and really inexpensive.

Marinade on Main

(Visited December 13, 2019) Outstanding Buffalo Chicken Sandwich at Marinade on Main in Ramona!

Boll Weevil

(Visited November 22, 2019) Outstanding Pastrami Burger at Boll Weevil in Ramona! Quarter pound steerburger covered with melted Swiss cheese, topped with with a pile of hot ‘strami and more melty Swiss. I ordered with their excellent, hot & crispy onion rings.

The Bier Garden

(Visited November 3, 2019) Outstanding Cuban Sandwich at The Bier Garden of Encinitas! One of the best Cuban’s I’ve put in my mouth, that I can tell you.

Jersey Mike’s

The ubiquitous #13 (add mayonnaise) at Jersey Mike’s in Rancho Bernardo! Perfection in a sandwich as far as I’m concerned.


One of the better specialty burgers I’ve had recently was the Bacon Jalapeño Cheeseburger at Wendy’s! Made with a quarter pound hot beef patty, pickled jalapeños, applewood smoked bacon, American cheese, crispy fried onions, a savory cheese sauce and a smoky jalapeño sauce. Not as messy as it sounds, it ate really well.


I dearly adore Arby’s, but unfortunately they’re becoming an endangered species in San Diego. On a recent trip to Palmdale I was blessed to be staying at a hotel very close to their local Arby’s. I of course had to go all out and get the half pound roast beef sammich, like a boss! Required some major jaw articulation but it was worth it. Almost evaporated their supply of Arby and Horsey sauce 😂

Jack in the Box

Fried chicken sandwiches appear to be a culinary phenomenon now, so I tried JIB’s version. I have to say, everything about this sammich was great, except the chicken. I loved the buttery bun, crispy and fresh lettuce & mater, mayonnaise slather, etc. Unfortunately the chicken itself was quite institutional. Clearly no match for Popeye’s or CFA, but those curly fries though!
