Bonehead Burger Company Going Brick-And-Mortar With Two San Diego Locations Opening Later This Year

May 1, 2024

Smash burger specialists Bonehead Burger Company is expanding its footprint with two new dine-in locations opening in San Diego. 

Founded in 2022 by brothers Kit Wingate and Blake Bone, Bonehead has garnered a loyal following for its mouthwatering smash burgers, including the signature Bonehead burger featuring their special sauce, cheddar cheese, crispy onion straws, maple bourbon bacon, and scallions. 

Originally starting as a backyard grill at the VFW in Imperial Beach, Bonehead quickly gained popularity, leading to the launch of a food truck and successful pop-up events across the city, as well as a space within Barrio Food Hub in Barrio Logan. Now, the brothers are returning to their roots with a sit-down spot at 150 Palm Avenue in Imperial Beach, sharing a kitchen with Seaside Candy and Ice Cream.

Additionally, Bonehead Burger Co. is set to open a larger location inside the Old Town Urban Market, occupying the space formerly held by Tuetano Taqueria and sister-concept Mar Rustico. This expanded venue will offer indoor seating, ample outdoor seating, and a selection of beer and wine to complement their menu, which includes not only burgers but also hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, and breakfast options. Looking ahead, Bonehead plans to introduce chef's table dinners with fine dining offerings, further solidifying its position as a staple in the San Diego dining scene. 

Bonehead Burger Company is expected to open both locations within the coming months. For more information, visit
