The hunger alarm sounded and the choices in Coronado are varied, numerous, but my buddy and I didn't want to idle in an upscale restaurant or eat in a mass-production burger joint, we simply wanted to sit quietly, devour a juicy burger, quaff a brew and press on to NASNI to meet my son's ship.
We entered Danny's, my eyes adjusted to the subdued light, and we asked the server, "How are the burgers?" She responded confidently, "They're the best! Burgers are our specialty!" Bold statement...but we're not discussing haute cuisine.
We sat down at a table in the back and looked around. Noting the decor and the names of fallen SEALS on the wall, my friend and I (former Marines, Viet Nam veterans) respectfully toasted the fallen.
Soon after, my half-pound cheeseburger arrived in a basket of fries and it magically disappeared in what I can only categorize as a localized feeding frenzy. I hadn't eaten breakfast that morning, and I was famished. My buddy wasn't quite as hungry as I, but we agreed these were two of the better burgers we'd eaten in some time.
We arrived around 1PM, so it was well before the dinner crush and long before the serious and rowdy drinking began. We had things to discuss, and we could easily hear each other's voice across the table.
If you're in Coronado and you've got a craving for a thick, juicy burger, stop in and enjoy. Bring an appetite, tip generously, and press on with a full stomach.
