Extensive beer selection including a few gluten free options. Great burgers, expecially the Santana Burger. Fish tacos and pizza also are winners. Great local vibe. Tuesday night until 8:00 is 2 for 1 burger night. Best deal in town.

Good selection of ales and tasty steak bruschetta, crab cakes and garlic fries. Amelia took good care of us. When we visit North County again, we will certainly consider returning.
