Need help with San Diego Plans

Neither here nor there, but your user name is very close to a San Diego regular named "Tripeler" - notorious for some fairly awful puns.

Oh for crying out loud Tripler. Don't drop these bombs late at night so people see them first thing in the morning. You just ruined my early morning solace.

San Diego CLOSED Restaurants: Thread Four (2014 edition)

Ciro's was sort of a craft beer place, so this is a zero sum gain. They're just trading in pizza for BBQ in the long run.

What say ye, SuperChowers?

And coincidentally, another review shows up at the same time, with a much different opinion:

Mariscos German Locations and Hours

I entirely agree with honkman - if you want to stop by the Carnitas Snack Shack on the way north, you are much better off going to the new Del Mar Highlands location. Sure, it lacks the "atmosphere" of the original, but the food should be the same, the location is much cleaner and less fly infested, and parking *may* be easier (parking in that mall can be challenging at times).

Unless there is an accident somewhere, traffic is rarely a factor on any freeway in San Diego on the weekends. You can get some stickiness on 5 North on a late Sunday with so many people heading back north, but that is about it.

No offense, hobbess, but you are almost over thinking the driving aspect of this. 99% of San Diego visitors do the opposite (thinking Carlsbad to Chula Vista is a quick drive), but you are among the first that seems overly concerned.

Donovan's or Rainwater's in San Diego - which is better?

I notice that on Donovan's website, they list the UTC address as "La Jolla, CA 92122".

LOL

Donovan's or Rainwater's in San Diego - which is better?

And to repeat what I said in another thread, pretty soon that Donovan's will be no more (something about the lease) - but they'll be moving lock, stock, and barrel to what used to be Azul in the village of La Jolla. I suspect that this will result in them losing a good part of the business expense crowd (who will probably shift to Flemings), but they'll gain quite a bit of the Village tourist crowd.

I would make it a loop to go to Chula Vista; the drive along the Silver Strand is somewhat scenic IMHO.

If you go at a strange hour (like 3 PM) the line might not be *so* bad. Thank you guy with the funny hair and TV show!

The trucks that have been recommended to you have been where they are for quite a well. It might be more useful to ask the reverse question: "if I'm going to be at this truck between X and Y on Zday, will they be open?"

Red Hook Joint Effort beer

Best Damned and Bine & Vine are the two places I would check first, though I'd be somewhat surprised if Geoi carried it at the latter. Palm Springs Liquor in La Mesa also has a pretty impressive craft selection, if you fail on those other options.

The Steakhouse Azul in La Jolla is no more:

Bought out by Donovan's, giving them a relatively short distance to move when they lose their UTC lease.

Easy like Sunday Morning. .

The beer geek tourists don't have a season - they are always around. Since the brewery is closed on Sunday, though, it is always a good time to go the pub.

Jakes at the Cove?

That would probably be a good match, though I was wishing for Keoki's Paradise. LOL

Well done, deckape. I didn't consider that Google Maps taco truck view would be a good way to help hobbess zero in. LOL

The cool people, if that close to Alpine, would probably head up there for their beer fix. What kind of burger did you try?

No, that is not the same address. The food trucks move around a lot, so Yelp is not going to be your best resource in many cases.

You can Google/map intersections, too. It's not as easy, but doable.

I strongly suspect that there are no food trucks allowed on Coronado.

Mariscos German Locations and Hours

To some degree, people say "Mariscos German" like they do "Bertos" with the taco shops. People are generally talking about the seafood taco trucks in general and not necessarily those with the German tag. The one that the OP cites is actually called Mariscos Nine Seas now. There is another truck not too far from there called Mariscos Oceanos.

Reservations for Laja

If our government wanted him back that badly, he'd have been back a long time ago. Blaming Mexican restaurants or resort owners for the situation by not giving them your business would likely be misplaced anger.

Any good deli in San Diego?

Though the thread was bumped two years ago, wcarpenter's response above was to a 4-year old post. Then again, nothing has changed in the deli scene in all that time, has it?

If you are going to huh me, at least do it for a good reason.

With that said, I had not seen the updated link that BC posted. 10 AM on the retail? Sorry, I need 8:30 at the latest - need to do better than that!

Apparently, El Pescador in La Jolla has finally moved to the bigger space across the street (in the old Marrakesh spot). Of course, they have CRAFT BEER TAPS now too.
