Patty Melt - San Diego

Just had a patty melt from Carls Jr. (shame on me, trying to kick a hangover). It was not horrible, and I got my USRDA of grease, but now I wondering where would I go to get a good patty melt (Rye, Grilled Onions, etc.) in San Diego? Please share you thoughts.

            Everytime I am in there, I always am running into a Charger/Padre or not

                Because it's a divey, East County kinda place in a Von's shopping center and a lot of people aren't always so willing to venture East of the 805 ;-D, even for a good burger!
