I went here pretty late one night after Jimmy O's. They make a great drink and the chicken fingers are to die for. I might consider here coming here over other restaurants for dinner in Del Mar. My dad loves the burgers. Fun place to sit at a booth with friends or watch a game.

Goes with the track. Been around forever, and so has the decor and the menu. An old favorite for many. Best if you want prime rib, a burger, or a beef sandwich with several cocktails. Very dark inside. Kind of like a speak easy...

This 1960s restaurant has kept the faith. The decor/ambiance is just like it was when Bully's first opened. This is not a place for vegans or for those who have red meat fears. This a full throttle place to get you "real meat" cravings out of the way. They have a full bar and the wine list is good. A... More

This is an affordable and comfortable restaurant. It is dark and friendly but the food is quite good. The split pea soup was delicious. The prime rib is excellent. The bread is warm.

First off the food and friendly service and old school charm brings me coming back to this location and the Mission Valley location. If you have read some of my reviews I am from San Diego & have been going back every few months for 17 years. I sold my house and was on a trip to celebrate my birthday... More
