Bangin’ Burgers | Miramar / San Diego, CA

Bangin’ Burgers is a joint over in Miramar, amidst the many other businesses in the area. When I think of Miramar, I think of furniture stores and the Marine base, not good places to eat. Bangin’ Burgers is a nice...

mad dogs cafe / pacific beach | san diego, ca

Ahh, another Groupon deal. If it weren’t for these sites (LivingSocial, BuyItWithMe, etc.) I would probably try less new places. But luckily they exist – and are heaven sent for a food blogger on a budget! I bought two of...
