Woodranch BBQ & Grill (Mission Valley)

Woodranch BBQ & Grill (Mission Valley)

We got invited to the soft opening for the first Woodranch BBQ in San Diego. They have about sixteen locations, mostly in the Los Angeles area. The restaurant is located in Hazard Center in Mission Valley towards the back of the parking lot where Randy Jones All American Sports Grill used to be.

The restaurant itself is very dimly lit with the brightest section being the bar. They have an outdoor patio in the back of the restaurant as well.

Since this was the soft opening all food was complimentary. I remember going to a Woodranch BBQ up in Corona with my family a few years ago.…

If you haven’t heard about Kettner Exchange yet, you will soon.  Brought to you by seasoned restauranteur Matt Spencer (of Analog, Vin De Syrah, and Firehouse), Kettner Exchange is an exciting and delicious destination to experience, and be seen.  Executive Chef Brian Redzikowski is serving up exceptional Progressive American Cuisine.  Bar Manager Steven Tuttle oversees classic, but friendly drinks to satisfy the most discerning patron.  Darren and I were fortunate to attend their grand opening party back in mid-October.  Here’s what we saw.

BGR Tasting (Point Loma)

BGR Tasting (Point Loma)

When Brian from Sage Communications contacted us asking if we’d like to attend a media tasting at BGR, I was a little hesitant for a couple reasons.  There is a ton of competition out there for the “best burger” so what could BGR have to offer that other places do not?  I wasn’t sure yet but Anh and I decided to give it a go anyways.  It’s located in a small shopping center near Sports Arena Blvd. and has been there since late last year.  BGR is a chain from the East coast and they’re trying to expand out here to “steak” claim to the title of “one of the best burgers” according to founder Mark Bucher.…

The Promiscuous Fork (La Jolla)

Hello everyone.  How’s everyone loving this rain!?!  Okay, it’s not that exciting.  But I think I’ve come across something to make the thought of that wet sock go away.  The Promiscuous Fork!  They opened earlier this year in an unassuming strip mall situated next to a liquor store.  But hold your horses, they serve beer and wine so you don’t have to get out of your chair just yet.  Let’s take a look at the menu they served when Anh and I went.

Sorry I couldn’t get a picture of the whole menu.  …

The Habit – Mission Valley, San Diego

The Habit – Mission Valley, San Diego

The Habit has finally made it’s way to San Diego!  I only tried The Habit once within the past year.  We were up in the San Fernando Valley looking for a snack to eat before heading back to San Diego.  A lot of people were raving about their burgers, so we had to check it out.  It was delish.

Fast forward a year later and we were excited to see The Habit setting up shop in the Mission Valley area over by King’s Fish House.  Is The Habit the best burger in San Diego now? …

Stacked – San Diego – Grand Opening!

Stacked – San Diego – Grand Opening!

Stacked is San Diego’s newest fast casual restaurant that brings technology and great food together.  Since we work within the I.T. industry on a daily basis, we were pretty excited to visit a restaurant in San Diego that splices two of our favorite things together… technology and food.  But did they really they satisfy both sides of the equation?  Let’s find out….

Stacked is nestled into the middle of the Fashion Valley mall in Mission Valley.  They are directly next to the valet parking area and across from the Burberry store (for those of you who know the mall layout). …

Empirehouse Urban Palate – Hillcrest/San Diego

There’s a new restaurant in town vying for your affection…

Empirehouse Urban Palate

Burgers = WOW.  I don’t say that often.  But I assure you it’s well deserved.  After a busy morning at the office, Darren and I decided to escape the office and try out this new restaurant in town.  I had heard about this place through the grapevine and figured it was about time to check it out.

Parking was pretty quick, only because we lucked out and snagged street spot.  I imagine during dinner you might need to walk a couple blocks.  …
