Carnitas' Snack Shack - Embarcadero
12 of the Best Burger Joints in San Diego
The sign may say “carnitas” but this local favorite hits high marks with burgers, too. Their tasty Blue Collar Burger, a thick patty of lean ground chuck seared to perfection and topped with oozey American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, and their special sauce, all on a brioche bun. Dress it up with bacon or a fried egg, and wash it down with a growler of margaritas (prickly pear!).
