San Diego Burger Club went to Callahan’s today. Despite the variety of burgers on the menu, the fact that tater tots are an option, and the presence of a combination Ms. Pac-Man / Galaga machine at the restaurant, Callahan’s earned a B-.
It’s not that Callahan’s is particularly bad, it’s just that everything they served could be better. The buns were overly doughy / slightly undercooked — not to the extent of being inedible, but enough that all of us noticed it. The burgers were just a bit off. Mine tasted sort of smoky. They were cooked to the temperature each of us ordered, but the flavor just wasn’t that great. Then there were the tater tots — a bit undercooked and not well seasoned (if they were seasoned at all). A couple of us had recently been to the Stuffed food truck and the comparison was hard to escape — the bun, burger, and tots at Stuffed are far superior.
That is really all that needs to be said. Callahan’s will do in a pinch, but you can get a much better burger in the vicinity, at the same cost or less, at either Draft Republic or Stuffed.
