FriendsEAT: Tell us a little something about rour restaurant.

Chef Brian: I own Notorious Burgers with my wonderful wife, Julie Gruber and together we come up with some of the most unique well-favored menu items and are huge supporters of local craft breweries in San Diego. So we proudly distribute local craft beer along with our one-of-a-kind gourmet burgers, salads, sandwiches, meat and cheese boards and more. The restaurant has a fun mobster prohibition-themed environment that allows us to play up the names of our entrees like the “Notorious B.I.G.” burger and the “Pacino’s Pork” burger.

FE: What makes you stand out above the rest?

Chef Brian: What makes Notorious Burgers stand out above the rest is our passion and love for what we do. We have so much fun creating new menu items and making fun (and funny) food that brings a smile to people’s faces.
