SAN DIEGO – Diners at Urban Mo’s Bar & Grill in recent weeks may have noticed a colorful new menu.
The popular bar and grill recently revamped its menu options and look, making it the first major menu change in several years. The expanded menu includes a photo of several community personalities dressed up in wild costumes “playing” at the venue, which is considered by many to be Hillcrest’s “adult playground.”
While many longtime favorites are still available, new options include the “Lick A Lick Burger,” the “Hangover Burger,” the “It’s Sooo Big… Burger,” the “Flaming Mother Pucker Wrap” and the “Italian Stallion Salad.”
The new options include a number of health-conscious choices like salads, wraps, turkey burgers and the “Circuit Party Dinner,” which is two chicken breasts with sauteed mixed veggies and a side salad (the restaurant notes that dressing is available on the side for the “circuit queens”).
Eddie Reynoso, marketing manager for Urban Mo’s, said the restaurant’s menu has only gone through a few major changes since the venue first opened in 1992 as Hamburger Mary’s.
“When we underwent our ‘sex change’ from Hamburger Mary’s to Urban Mo’s, we re-branded our products and made some additions to the menu,” Reynoso said, noting that since then, only a few items and specials have been added or changed.
Hamburger Mary’s became Urban Mo’s in 2006.
Chris Shaw, owner of Urban Mo’s, thinks people will love the menu, especially the new burger options.
“There is no reason not to come in to have one of our new fabulous, healthy burger alternatives, like the new moist chicken and turkey patties,” Shaw said. “We have eliminated every reason to not enjoy our burgers by being the first to serve hand packed lean ground chicken burgers, served on our new wheat buns. Guests can make it even healthier by substituting the fries for a bowl of fruit!"
Urban Mo’s is located at 308 University Ave. in Hillcrest. For more information or to view the menu click HERE.
