Cheeseburger Diaries - Canada Steak Burger, San Diego, CA

A little introduction to this new series:
If you know me, you know that I am a big fan of Cheeseburgers. Basically, it's just a bunch of stuff that I like - bread, burger patty (I prefer ground beef over any other kind of beef ... I guess it least reminds me of the fact that I am eating an animal), cheese, lettuce, tomato ... can't go wrong with that! 
Growing up in Germany, I didn't eat too much beef. I think I had my first actual Cheeseburger when I was 14 at a Restaurant called Chicago Meatpackers in Frankfurt (if you're in the city, stop by there!!). I've never had a beef burger from a fast food restaurant (expect for In N Out). I'm kinda picky about meat. 
But anyways, I have eaten a lot of Cheeseburgers in my 20somthing years (most of them in the last 6 years) and I decided to share my opinion about all the Burgers I eat. All Burgers discussed here are classic Cheeseburgers - beef patty, sliced cheese, lettuce and tomato and mayo and whatever other dressing the restaurant uses. I don't like pickles or onions, ketchup and mustard, so those will never be on my burger.

Since we've moved into our current apartment a couple of months ago, we have driven past this burger place many times. We weren't quiet sure what kind of food they served (marble syrup drenched steak!?) and didn't really expect much from it, but we've kinda been wanting to try it out. A while ago Manny went with some friends and really liked it so we decided to go there today for lunch. It's a little place in a not so good part of town but the food is really good. (After all, they have been voted best Burger in San Diego).  The menu consists of different varieties of Charbroiled steak burgers, Gyros and other Greek food and of course, a good old Cheeseburger. The 4oz cheeseburger with Fries and a drink was $5.99.  The fries were lightly seasoned and very yummy (I guess it's a good sign if you keep stuffing fries into your mouth after you already decided that you're full). 
And now for the Burger . The 4oz Cheeseburger comes with lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, mayo, mustard and ketchup (I only had tomato, lettuce & mayo on mine). The patty itself was great! Perfectly cooked (not bloody but also not burned, at all) and the taste was good. The cheese was melted enough and the veggies were fresh! No complaints on my part. I left with a full and happy stomach and will return soon!!
