wienerschnitzel hot dogs

Ah, Wienerschnitzel. I hadn’t been here in years and two things converged to bring me here last weekend: 1) I got some gift cards from a PR person and 2) They were having a 61 cents anniversary special. Let’s do this.

The familiar steeple A frame is still present in all of the Wienerschnitzel’s in San Diego. I totally associate this look with hot dogs.

The menu. They don’t just have hot dogs anymore! There’s also a variety of chili burgers and …

eating burgers at a taco shop | casa sonora / oak park – san diego, ca
March 31st, 2014 Cheap Eats, Mary, Oak Park, San Diego County Mary Desjean 9 Comments

Back in the day, Fred’s Old Fashioned Burgers was Jake and I’s favorite spot for burgers. It was in our regular rotation even though we had to go alllllll the way out to El Cajon for it. I loved their peanut butter chocolate shakes dearly and I especially loved their simple burgers and tasty french fries. We noticed a serious decline in quality and customer service before the El Cajon location shut down last year. There was still Alpine, but …

tom’s chinese bbq + dim sum / city heights – san diego
March 11th, 2014 Cheap Eats, City Heights, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 11 Comments

Jake used to live in the heart of City Heights and used to work at the Albertson’s on University near I-15. We spotted this place some years ago (six to seven, almost the whole length of our relationship) just driving up and down that dreaded street: Tom’s BBQ. We could tell it was Chinese from the top sign we couldn’t read but we didn’t really know anything else about it. Whenever one of us would mention it, we’d shrug our …

firehouse subs revisit + giveaway!

Recently I was invited to come back into Firehouse Subs for a special dinner with the co-founder, Robin Sorensen, who entertained a group of us with stories, jokes, and more importantly some food! Firehouse Subs has more recently started expanding out here in the West with over 700+ locations under their belt, so it was fun to hear hear a few tales about how the business started. It was also great to speak with and hear from one of the …

charley’s famous hamburgers / lemon grove – san diego, ca
August 12th, 2013 Cheap Eats, Lemon Grove, Mary, San Diego County Mary Desjean 9 Comments

A few weeks ago Jake and I were out and about and planning on grabbing some lunch. We had decided to go to Fred’s in El Cajon since we felt it needed one last shot before we took it off our rotation. The last few times we had visited, the food wasn’t as good. The fries and burgers were not the same – lack of taste and seasonings. You could tell the quality just wasn’t up to par and not …

taco eating at rubios
January 4th, 2013 Mary, Multiple Locations Mary Desjean 8 Comments

I don’t go to Rubio’s that often. Once in a blue moon I’ll go on Taco Tuesday and get the original fish tacos for cheap, but they honestly aren’t my favorite. Fish tacos don’t really seem to do it for me, but hey, I’ll try anything again. I got a few coupons to go in and try the tacos again and figured I’d do it and take a friend along with me to check it out.

I got a two-taco combination …

world’s oldest operating mcdonald’s / downey – los angeles, ca

This is my 7th and final day of a week’s long worth of Eating in LA posts! This post cheats a little though. I’m sure you’ll forgive me.
When I was with Jake and Chris and we were on our way to Porto’s, we spotted this sign in the distance:

We joked about their only being one arch and how it was probably some rip off on McDonald’s until we got closer and realized, “Holy crap, it is a McDonald’s!”

We vowed to …
