This is the ultimate cheese burger in SoCal. PIPES Burgers in Cardiff by the Sea a short one block walk across PCH from the surfing beach San Elijo State Beach or better known Swami’s Surf spot, [check surf cam here] , just around the corner from DJ Donuts, is Pipes.
The thick cut bacon cheese burger with extra tomatoes & everything includes mustard is killer, I order the french fry’s well done a bit, as these big steak cut frys need a bit longer to cook, just awesome noon meal. This is all served on an open air patio you can hear the Santa Fe Coaster go by a few hundred feet away, one block off PCH, ocean beach close.
They serve breakfast too, but do not be late, as they fold up the entire place just before 3:00pm everyday, be here by 2:00 to make sure your served. Cash only…. give the girls a tip they deserve it.
