Werewolf (Gaslamp)


We stumbled upon Werewolf after a visiting Canadian friend raved about her experience. Her story involved a great time, tasty food, happy hour specials, and 66% off. We’d be happy with all of those individually, but all at once? This was too good to be true. An immediate investigation had to commence.


The bar up front when you walk in is simple, with flat screens lined up for your viewing pleasure. However, what follows throughout the bar/restaurant is sensory overload in the best sense possible.




An art piece high above that reads “shots” made out of bullets? Werewolf comics adhered to the walls? An “It’s Pat” homage on the bathroom doors? Need I say more. I can see why our friend loved the place, and we had yet to take our first bite, Werewolf style.


I even liked the front of their menu. Come on dude.



They had a few main categories like salads, burgers, sandwiches, and plates. Anh had her eyes set on the Foghorn sandwich while our server led me to the Beef Short Ribs plate. 


The Foghorn came with chicken, cheddar cheese, crispy onions, chimichurri sauce, tomato, and a charred scallion creme. The burgers and sandwiches also come with standard fries. You can upgrade them for a small charge. Everything rubbed me the right way except the onion rings. They just didn’t do much for me in the form of taste or texture. If they didn’t fall out after a few bites, I might have not noticed them. Aside from that, all of the components came together into a nice bite. Maybe I’m going light on the description because Anh scarfed it down before I could get a few bites in. Must have been good!


Many restaurants serve a beef short rib entree. Many restaurants I leave thinking meh, why did I order that forgetful dish? After I effortlessly pulled a piece of Werewolf’s short rib and placed it into my mouth, I had to stop and think…did I just eat an above average beef short rib? Wait a minute. How above average is this? Way above average, right? Yes! Way above average, up up up there I must say. Not only that, but the brussel sprouts weren’t oily, didn’t have bacon, and didn’t have an entire salt shaker dispensed on top!? Holy crap. Add this to the list, pronto. If you haven’t gathered already, we like this place. Dare I say it has become our new favorite gaslamp location. It shines bright like a full moon, giving us something to howl about. Woooooo!


They have other specials throughout the week, but this Sunday one is crazy. Remember that 66% I was talking about earlier? You get two dice to roll. She rolled two sixes and got 66% off her bill.  I think she paid maybe $8 total for a meal and a drink. Note: please read the fine print.

About Darren

Fooood! I love it if you can't tell already. I love everything about it. The taste, the smell, the look, the feel, the satisfaction, the gratification, and ultimately: the fun! I've been in San Diego for about 10 years now and it amazes me that there are still places to uncover. Traveling, eating, and taking pictures of food has always been a hobby of mine. So naturally Michael and I thought it made sense to share what we found with all of you. I tend to side with the savory but never shy away from a knock out dessert. If you have a place you think we haven't tried let us know! We're always on the lookout...
