Where to eat is not a problem anymore. If you are looking for everything on the menu, you must visit the Boll Weevil Restaurant. It is located in San Diego, California, United States. Started as a casual dining chain of restaurants, it now has loads of variety to offer to you. This Boll Weevil review takes you through the flavors of the place.





Past and Present

Boll Weevil was founded in 1966 by Fred and Lorraine Halleman. The original location was adjacent to the upscale Cotton Patch steakhouse, with the Boll Weevil name referring to a smaller restaurant spawned from a cotton patch. Both were located in San Diego on Midway Drive, near Barnett Ave and the Pacific Coast Highway. On September 15, 2008, the company-owned restaurants were closed down as the parent company entered Chapter 7 bankruptcy. A few independently-owned franchise stores remain open.
