Ingredient Driven!

Welcome to CraftBurger!

We'd like to start by thanking you. When it comes to food, we know you have options. In the short time we've been open, we've developed a loyal base of local customers who understand and appreciate our philosophy. If you're just discovering us, we look forward to getting to know you. Here's a little bit about us.

It seems that in the chaos and rush of our everyday lives, food has become an afterthought.  Many people think of food as mere fuel, and have forgotten the powerful ability of a good meal to truly nourish and sustain us.  With this mentality, it's no wonder that mealtime is often treated as a pit-stop between work and the kids' soccer practice.  Yet we know the food we get from the drive-thru is not the best way to truly fuel our bodies or our souls. So many prepackaged, processed, preserved and artificial components go into making that meal, and we certainly don't come away from eating it feeling refreshed or satisfied.  

Here, food is anything but an afterthought. With the creation of this restaurant, we wanted to share our obsession with all-natural ingredients and partner with local farms to create what we hope will be, as a few of our regulars have put it, the best darn burger you ever had.  Here's a list of some of the ingredients used in our burgers, along with the suppliers who provide them for us:

Beef – 100% natural Angus ground ribeye and strip loin, with our special spices (USA-Midwest)

Brioche Buns – Baked fresh and delivered to us each morning from Bread & Cie (San Diego, CA)

Bibb Lettuce – 100% organic & GMO free from Go Green Agriculture (Encinitas, CA)

Mushrooms – White buttons from Mountain Meadow mushroom farm (Escondido, CA)

Avocado – Various farms such as Henry, all from neighboring cities (Escondido and Fallbrook, CA)

Eggs – All natural free range grade AA from Eben Haezer Poultry Ranch (Ramona, CA)

Oh, and we don't just do burgers. Our house-made frozen custard base is made with five simple ingredients: local Clover Dairy cream and milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla.  Even our sodas and other drinks are all-natural, crafted beverages.  Our craft draft beer list is entirely from California, and is an eclectic mix of the many different styles in which our local brewers excel.  

As you can see, we take pride in our product, and we hope you notice the difference. We're not the cheapest burger in town.  We don’t want to be.  Our goal is to give you the best.
