San Diego’s Secret Restaurant Shopper’s latest quest:

“Find The Best Burger in Pacific Beach & La Jolla” —

and the results are in!

Bareback Restaurant Pacific Beach San Diego

After 12 years in the restaurant business there are many ways to judge something as simple as a burger joint; but none more “all encompassing” than “Value Perception”. This is where Bareback was able to “separate the men from the boys, and the tools from the toys…”

Value Perception defined:

The worth that a product or service has in the mind of the consumer. The consumer’s perceived value of a good or service affects the price that he or she is willing to pay for it.

Value Perception Personified:

Value Perception allows the tangibles & intangibles to be factored into the equation and it provides a much more valuable metric as to the overall experience. For example, Value Perception in the restaurant business allows one to calculate in the attitude and training of the staff, the music, the seating, as well as those “little extras” that allow for a competitive advantage.

Although 10 different burgers joints were covered, perhaps three provided the best explanation of how a winner was determined.

For example, one can get a Cheeseburger at 5 Guys on Garnet Ave for around $7 bucks. But, a true Burger or Steak lover is particular about their cook temps. 5 Guys only offers “well done burgers”–due to their corporate policy and lower quality meat. (Non-organic meat selections). In addition to this; it is a sterile cafeteria style environment with bright lighting, wooden chairs, no servers, no flat screen TVs for sports, and it lacks that Pacific Beach “open-air beach lifestyle feel”. In other words, once inside; the 5 Guys in PB feels just like the 5 Guys in Detroit.

If you are looking for counter service or “to-go” burgers, at this price point; you will have more value perception skipping 5 Guys and hitting In-N-Out Burger.

Can a burger hold value perception north of a $10 price point? After all, the fast food chains sell small burgers for $2.00 all day long? What makes something 5 times as good? Value Perception. “This is the difference between eating and dining”. Upon recommendation, we went to the upscale Burger Lounge in La Jolla. We sat on the Patio and the Burger was good. Much better than 5 Guys. But, when all was said and done they are really just an expensive version of 5 Guys. There was not that intangible quality, that added value, that something extra…This is La Jolla, where is my “joie de vivre”….where’s my “spice of life”?

Bareback Pacific Beach hit the sweet spot. The bottom line is; I left feeling better than when I went in. The Organic Burger was cooked medium rare to a perfection that would make Ruth Chris herself blush with envy. The wait staff was a good as they were good looking. (Which in my waitress’s case; was 5 stars!) Sports all around and an ocean breeze coming through the open walled patio. A blissful carnivore’s delight and enough delicious microbrews to drown out a PETA convention. While I was dining, I saw the actor from CSI Miami “Mr. Dreamboat” Heart-throb himself: “Mario Prado” at the bar. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1328794/ – He was holding court with a bevy of bountiful felines surrounding him. Bareback is the local hot spot. It may have taken me 10 different places to find the “best”, but Bareback Bar and Grill is the only one surveyed that has me hooked & booked as a return customer.

Pacific Beach Thai Restaurant Ra Ka De Ka Serves Great Food & Prices

Pacific Beach Thai Food Review
Rakadeka Thai Food Restuarant in PB
A Thai Food Restaurant and Place to Eat!

When it comes to Thai food I am a cultist. It is one of those food types that I could eat every day and never get tired of it and the food itself is healthy, nutricious and prepared with a aruyvedic background. In addition to that every Thai person I see is thin and that pretty much says it all right there.

Rakadeka Thai in PB has a very relaxed and laid back feel. It is part “fast food Thai” and part sit down Thai with most items being served in throw away plates and bowls – my kind of people who hate doing dishes -. This style of layout makes getting in and out very fast and that always helps at lunch times. All of the menu items have generous portions and they have brown rice for those looking for healthy options.
