And now for something a bit different

"I don't know, I don't know, I don't know where I'm a-gonna go when the volcano blows." -- Jimmy Buffett Tonight we were in the mood to try something new. So we headed to Oceanside to Volcano's Burgers and Salads. It's sort of a cross between fast food and a sit down restaurant. You can order take out at the counter, or you can be seated at a table or booth and have waitress service. I loved how the tables are all dry-erase boards -- you can play tic tac toe or hangman or do a maze or word search. The menu tends to lean towards spicy foods and unusual burger toppings. Besides burgers there are also chicken sandwiches and a variety of salads, including a (pretty standard) salad bar. The fried pickles came with a moderately spicy dipping sauce. The Hawaiian burger -- swiss cheese, red onion and grilled pineapple -- was cooked to order and served with lettuce and tomato and teriyaki sauce on the side; sauce was very thick and sweet, and a little drizzled on the burger was perfect. Other unusual options include jalapenos, goat cheese and gorgonzola cheese. Combos come with a choice of sides, including fries, sweet potato fries, onion rings and side salad. Loved the onion rings. Food was hot and fresh, service was efficient and cheerful. This place is a little out of our way but the food was excellent. We will be back. Volcano's Burgers and Salads on Urbanspoon
