Fun is what makes a weekend different from the humdrum weekday routine.  Sightseeing in your hometown can take surprising turns.  We were out shopping for a baby gift, visiting all the haunts for deals so we could put together a great “baby basket” for the expectant couple.  This meant a sightseeing tour of neighborhoods we don’t frequent.

After a few hours, our tummies were growling.  Where should we eat?  We passed a handful of fast food shops.  Nope, none of us would spend money there.  We quested for a bonafide restaurant.  After many blocks of nothingness, we made a pact that we would stop and take a chance at the next place we passed where we could sit down to eat.

Along came Woody’s Burgers!  We couldn’t have stumbled upon a better lunch that day.  We went to the counter to order and it took several minutes for each of us to decide on a dish.  Once we did, the fun began.

Our order taker was polite, humorous, and informative.  Best of all he got all our orders correct and delivered them hot and ready to eat.

The only problem was deciding which burger, of the ones we ordered, was the best.  We couldn’t.  They were all good.  We also had a shared plate of sweet potato fries that was plenty for three people.  A very generous portion that satisfied all of us.

So, if you are in the San Diego area and have a craving for a burger (or even a Portobello burger) with an icy cold locally brewed beer, Woody’s Burgers is the place!  Oh and they have a shop in Palm Springs too if you are dirt biking in the desert.

Aren’t you  hungry now?  I am.  I could do it all over again right now.  Fresh ingredients, great service, and food served as it should be.

(This is my unsolicited opinion and I have no relationship to the restaurant or anyone involved in it.  I just loved their food enough to write about it.)
