san diego burger week 2016 recap

San Diego Burger Week was upon us once again last week – were you able to hit up any spots for $5 burgers? I only managed to go to 5 places which seems somewhat respectable. Let’s recap the places I visited for San Diego Burger Week and I’ll tell you which burgers I’d actually pay full price for in the future.
South Park Abbey
At South Park Abbey in South Park, the Burger Week deals were:
$5 Burger: Our Harris Ranch Beef Burger, …

blue ribbon fried chicken + shake shack in vegas
February 26th, 2016 Las Vegas, Mary, Travel Mary 8 Comments

I was really on the fence about trying Shake Shack. I thought the only location was on the Strip at the NY NY Casino and I had very, very little desire to head all the way down the Strip just for a burger. Shake Shack had been taken off the list until Jake and I went to Summerlin for lunch to try Blue Ribbon Fried Chicken… and then I saw the Shake Shack literally across the road in the same …

mishmash
February 8th, 2016 Barrio Logan, Mary, San Diego County Mary 2 Comments

I’m always trying to look for new places and last weekend was no exception! After running around town doing some errands on Friday, Jake, T and I headed to a new spot over in the revamped Barrio Logan (did you know they got a gateway sign in 2014 – I didn’t until I saw it!). The place? A new joint called MishMash. Talking to our waitress, we found out they are still in the “soft opening” stage and have only …

d bar… for the last time
December 7th, 2015 Hillcrest, Mary, San Diego County Mary 4 Comments

I’ve been to D Bar in Hillcrest many, many times. One of the first times we went was during our Bacon Crawl back in 2013. I’ve also gone for a few birthdays and just as a treat and I was very sad to learn that D Bar will be closing up shop on December 20th. Excuse me while I weep over a bowl of crue fries!
Jake, T and I went last night for one of our last dinners at D …

[revisit] stacked
November 30th, 2015 Mary, Mission Valley, San Diego County Mary 4 Comments

A few weeks ago I was invited to come back in to Stacked, a restaurant we’ve visited in the past. 

Stacked is located in Fashion Valley and offers up a super customizable menu by letting you order everything yourself via their iPad ordering system. 

Naturally they have “regular” old boring menus in case fiddling with iPads aren’t your thing. You can see that menu right here.

But if it is your thing, you can browse through preselected menu items or make your own …

sin city burger at smashburger + giveaway

Hello to you on this fine Friday morning! Let’s talk a little bit about Smashburger. Cause I ate there recently. This is a foodie blog after all. We talk about food around here!

Jake and I hit up Smashburger after they graciously gave me some coupons to check out a couple of burgers. When we were ordering the sign above totally caught my eye. Mmm, chocolate peanut butter shakes! I haven’t had one in awhile (these babies have already existed at …
