Mmmmm, hamburgers

A few weeks ago some of my girl friends came to visit. We had a wild and crazy weekend filled with concerts, shopping and of course, food.

The Vons that I shop at is located across the street from a place called Tioli's Crazy Burger. Outside this restaurant there hangs a sign that says “best burgers in town.” Every time I do my grocery shopping I always drive past and think, “I should really check that place out, I love a good burger!”

After a long day of shopping and bar-hopping in Pacific Beach my friend exclaimed that she really wanted a hamburger. *Light bulb* “I know just the place I told the group.” To Tioli’s we went.

Turns out, Tioli’s was on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-ins and Dives with Guy Fieri, so it must be pretty good.

The restaurant isn’t very big. You order at the counter and for the most part you have to order sides, like fries, separate. Prices are pretty reasonable for restaurant burgers. Here’s what we got:

TEXAS Burger with Hickory smoked Barbeque Sauce (plus bacon)

Saturday special: Hamburgeeeeeerrrrr FRANCAISE with melted Brie Cheese

CheeeeeeeeeeSeeeeeeeey Burger.......................... Pepper Jack

My order: SANTORINI Burger, ½ Beef ½ Lamb with Tsatsiki Sauce

How we all felt afterward:
