Burgers are expensive and over-cooked.

July 4, 2008

My friend was anxious to treat me to a birthday lunch at a place called Boomerangs Gourmet Burger Joint. It’s been open for about five years, but I don’t live in Clairemont, where Boomerangs is located, so we simply never managed to get there until today. My friend knows that I love macaroni and cheese, and she was anxious for me to meet her friends, the owners Jose Munoz and Bruce Cohen. She said that Boomerangs has a special deal, in which you choose your mac and cheese, then you select items from their long list of delectables, to have added-in to your pasta.

I had every intention of ordering the mac and cheese, until I saw the size of the portion! It was big enough to feed four people! We'll try it next time. Just know that Boomerang’s offers 24 different add-ins to their macaroni and cheese, things like horseradish; roasted red peppers; sun dried cranberries; bacon; jerk spice; Cajun spice and Kalamata olives. You also get a choice of one of the following meats: chicken breast, ground beef, ground turkey, bratwurst, shrimp, mahi-mahi, salmon or top sirloin.

I ended up ordering a Portobello mushroom burger topped with grilled red onions, smoked Gouda cheese and grilled artichoke hearts. Excellent choice! For the burgers, Boomerangs has a list of seven meats, plus a Portobello mushroom, and a veggie burger. Then you get to choose three items to put on top of your burger. Then select one of 19 side dishes, such as: mashed potatoes with blue cheese crumbles, horseradish, bacon, and garlic; garlic French fries; chili corn on the cob; sweet potato fries; tater tots and tropical coleslaw, etc.For my side dish, I wavered back and forth between the garlic fries, the baked beans and the spicy onion rings. The food at Boomerangs is like quality gourmet fair food. Unlike the San Diego County Fair, the prices are quite reasonable.

If this place had a motto, I think it would be: So many dips, so little time. Whether you order a burger or sweet potato fries, or an appetizer sampler platter, be prepared to be bombarded with a plethora of dips and sauces to choose from. They have a spicy chipotle sauce, habanero ketchup, a citrus glaze sauce, tropical salsa, garlic sour cream, and horseradish mayonnaise, to name a few.

The best beer cheese soup I ever ate was from Boomerangs, which I slurped up with glee, along with my Portobello burger. I would travel across the county just for that soup. They also serve a vegetable soup with fresh seasonal veggies and potatoes, in a seasoned broth; and a spicy southwestern corn chowder.

I think Boomerangs would be much better situated in an area like Hillcrest or North Park, which are geared more towards foodies. I just want to get the word out to people, so that if you do end up traveling through Clairemont, make it a point to check out Boomerangs , you won’t be sorry.
