Economics: Reasonable price for a delectable burger ($10). The French fries with foillanddaise sauce was not cheap ($7) but it was worth it.

Atmosphere: Searsucker had a fun and relaxed atmosphere with an inviting design with a modern classic touch. Inside was a large bar area, distressed furniture and exposed ceiling beams creating an open yet classy warehouse feel. There were some comfy couches and chairs inside as well for lounging.

Taste: The two-hand burger was amazing and one of the best burgers in San Diego we’ve had for around $10. The burger was made from fresh ground filet and came with a Swiss gruyere cheese, onion jam and baconaise. The French fries were tasty from the salt and seasoning added and some of the best we’ve had.

Service: The service was fast and friendly. We were greeted by a host upon walking in and were seated within a few minutes. Due to its popularity, during peak hours there can be a wait.

Searsucker offers a New American Classic cuisine, highlighting dishes paired with local craft beers, handcrafted cocktails and a selection of wines from around the world. Celebrity executive chef Malarkey worked with restaurant and nightclub developer James Brennan and interior designer Thomas Schoos to build the restaurant that sports a kicked-back, comfortable and warm design with a classic feel.

The lunch menu consisted of greens and bowls, sandwiches (hot crust, cold crust and stuff for kids), drinks (water, sodas, wines, beers, coffee and teas) and three sweet options for dessert. The dinner menu had about three dozen starters, over two dozen main courses (ocean, ranch, farm, and…), a variety of drinks, and a couple all milk and sugar desserts. We visited Searsucker on a Sunday and ordered off the Sunday lunch menu. We ordered a two-hand burger ($10) and a side of French fries ($7).

Searsucker Two-Hand Burger
The two-hand burger was delicious and one of the best we’ve hand in San Diego for around $10. The two-hand burger came with a Swiss gruyere cheese, onion jam, baconaise and served on a delicious lightly cooked bun.

The burger was made from fresh filet grind. It was juicy, cooked to perfection and had excellent flavor.

Searsucker French Fries with Foillanddaise Sauce
The French fries came with a side of “foillanddaise” for dipping. The fries were some of the best we’ve had. The fries were seasoned and served hot with a nice light crisp on the outside.
