Rock Bottom Brewery – La Jolla

I’m up with the sun.  Been walking to the mall every week to prepare.  It’s Black Friday and I gotta get the deals before they are snapped up.  I didn’t plan on stopping by Rock Bottom but they have a $50 for a year of burgers deal I cannot resist.  It’s gonna cost me less than $1/burger if I visit every week.  🙂
Place is a survivor.  It’s been here before I moved to the neighborhood.  There use to be an El Torito next door.  I tried it a few times but preferred cheap taco shops.
Burger with bacon, lettuce, onion strings.  Beef had a nice beefy flavor and was lightly seasoned.   Bacon had savory bacon flavor. Bun had a very mild flavor.  I’m not a big fan of iceberg lettuce and would prefer more expensive lettuce.  I like this burger a bit better than Red Robin but not as much as Chicago Fire Grill.  Beer batter onion rings had a crunchy batter and delicious mix of salty and sweet flavors.  Among the best I’ve ever had.

Fresh fried cod fish and chips with onion rings. Light fresh cod flavor and seasoned batter was very crunchy.  French fries were the standard fast food fry but very crunchy and nicely seasoned.
Big dining room.


Outdoor seating and brewery ingredients.


Fancy dining area upstairs.
I quite enjoy the food here, staff greeted me nicely and checked on me during my visit.  This place has the best Black Friday deal I’ve ever gotten at a restaurant.  🙂
Ready for Xmas.

  1. Such an awesome year of burger’s deal! Looking forward to seeing the ornaments on their Christmas tree. Just love their onion rings.

    1. We can go this weekend and see what they put up.

  2. Great find!! How do you find these deals?!!
    Ok, i just re read the post and thought I read $50 for burgers every day for some reason 🙂
    Still, the $50 (for 1 a week?) is still an excellent deal.

    1. I’m on the mailing list for a ton of restaurants. They are always sending me junk mail but once in awhile there is a good deal. They would go out of business if they sold $50 for a burger a day for a year.

      Do you like Rock Bottom?

  3. Wow what a deal! I also thought it was a burger a day until I read Faye’s and your comment! I wonder how good those burgers are… If you ever get burgered out, take me for the burger and you order something different =P

    1. I’ll probably get tired of them next year. The quality of the burger is about the same as Red Robin. Most of the time I prefer them to Red Robin but I got one that had too much char and too much lettuce.
