We were out visiting family and had friends (old San Deigites, San Deigans?) tell us to stop here for a few beers and snacks. We ordered the bacon wrapped figs and it nearly blew our wigs off. If you are passing through, please stop in...More

A great location and nice outside style seating. The food was fairly good for the pricing, not over wow, but a fantastic option for lunch. The seafood mussels had 30% of the serving that had about 3-6 hours of left before GI distress would be...More
