Boll Weevil to open Santee location

Operators of locally based Western-style burger restaurant chain Boll Weevil have announced plans to plan to open a new location in Santee. Hackley Murphy Enterprises has applied for a liquor license with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control at 9621 Mission Gorge Road, Suite 101. The location is the former site of Michael’s Grill. The full-service restaurant company opened its first Boll Weevil in 1967 and currently has five San Diego County locations, the nearest is four miles to the east in Lakeside. The chain previously had a restaurant in Santee at 9535 Mission Gorge Road, which closed a few years ago.
