One of San Diego’s Best Burgers

While our favorite way to eat a burger is with beef, we also offer basil turkey patty, chicken breast, crispy chicken fritter, or vegan patty.

Sub our regular buns with lettuce cups or whole wheat buns. All our buns are handcrafted fresh daily. Sub fries for plain tots at no extra charge.
