San Diego's Pure Burger 100-Percent Grass-Fed Beef

Found in Bressi Ranch, Pure Burger has established a great reputation for itself as North County's premier build a burger joint, and the attention it pays to its beef has a lot to do with that. Always fresh, never frozen, Pure uses 100-percent grass fed beef in its burgers. It's sourced from the family-owned SunFed Ranch in Northern California, where the pasture-raised cattle isn't loaded with the added hormones and antibiotics of factory-farmed beef. Another key to Pure Burger's success is that it receives shipment of whole beef a couple times per week, and grinds it in house daily, with a blend of garlic powder, salt, and pepper, for peak texture and flavor.

The resulting beef patty is served however you like it. Customers get a choice of white or whole grain wheat buns — each baked locally — and even a gluten free option. Real Tillamook cheese options include Swiss, pepper jack, or cheddar; while locally sourced toppings include fresh jalapeño, grilled mushroom, avocado, and pineapple. Where it really gets creative is fifteen different house made sauces to dress the burger, ranging from organic ketchup and a thousand island-style spread to honey sriracha, balsamic mustard, and chipotle aioli.
