umami burger / hermosa beach

After the Crave Expo, we realized we were in Los Angeles. Just before 5PM… at the height of the dreaded rush hour. A peek at Google maps confirmed that traffic was horrendous and we were pretty much stuck… so Jake decided to just drive. I eventually stopped looking at Google maps and tried to just “enjoy the ride” and not let my controlling side take over. We eventually ended up in Venice Beach and then hit the 101 and started …

south cali steak burger bar / chula vista
August 1st, 2014 Cheap Eats, Chula Vista, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Last weekend before we went to go see Gabriel Iglesias in The Fluffy Movie, we stopped by this place in Chula Vista for a little lunch first. It’s called South Cali Steak Burger Bar.

It’s not much to look at from the outside and I’m sure you’d easily bypass this place just driving by on the road. There are three parking spots in the front.

Inside there’s about 9 tables, one is a big table for larger groups (the one behind Jake …

eureka! burgers / la jolla utc – san diego, ca
June 18th, 2014 La Jolla, Mary, San Diego County, UTC Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I’ve been to Eureka! Burgers before – but never actually had a burger there. I’ve tried the salads and appetizers and I felt it was high time that I actually try one of their burgers. I was curious how it stacked up to the many, many other burger places we have here in San Diego.

el rey de las fritas / little havana – miami, fl
June 4th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 4 Comments

I only have a few Florida related posts left, so let me get to another one before I forget all about what Florida was like!
After cruising around Key West in the humid warm weather, we left the Keys and traveled up to Miami. I really wanted to have lunch in Miami and picked a place in Little Havana called El Rey de las Fritas.

I read about fritas on Yelp and after doing a Google search and they sounded interesting enough. …

southernmost beach cafe / key west, fl
May 19th, 2014 Florida, Mary, Road Trips Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Ahh, we’re finally getting the to the Key West posts! It was a long eight hour drive down to Key West from Tampa. Sarasota was about an hour away so after blunch we still had about seven hours ahead of us. Hoo boy. I didn’t do any of the driving, I just sat in the back seat and chilled out reading my books.
 
We drove through lots of swampland, which you pretty much can’t see. There’s a lot of green, then …

revisit to woody’s burger / miramar – san diego, ca
April 30th, 2014 Mary, Miramar, San Diego County Mary Desjean 2 Comments

I hadn’t visited Woody’s Burgers since last year when we had a uh… not so great experience with the food. I was recently invited to come back in and give Woody’s Burgers another shot – and I dragged my co-workers David and Matt along for the ride since they were with me during the first visit!

The menu looked to be about the same as our last visit.

These aren’t listed on the actual menu, but every table has this list of …

mr. peabody’s bar & grill / encinitas, ca
April 14th, 2014 Encinitas, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

Mr. Peabody’s is a cool little dive bar/grill in Encinitas, CA that I was invited to check out last week. It’s tuckered into a strip mall right off the freeway at Encinitas Blvd. It’s kind of hard to spot since the sign doesn’t really stand out and it’s way back in the lot, but it’s worth a visit to this semi-hidden spot!

They got some sweet happy hour deals as well as Daily Specials plus live entertainment nearly every evening. You …

babs (bao’s awesome burgers) / convoy – san diego, ca
April 2nd, 2014 Kearny Mesa, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I’ve been sitting on a Groupon for Babs (Bao’s Awesome Burgers) for quite some time. We’ve tried to go a couple of times when it didn’t work out but this past weekend we finally made it in! Jake only had to circle us around the tiny lot once before someone left a spot that we were able to grab. I think Jake is a parking good luck charm.

For the Babs Groupon deal, we had the deal where you could get …
