Best Taco Shops In San Diego...

Just to be clear for the folks who have reignited this trail: tacos el Gordo is the BEST outside of Tijuana. I have not been to las cuatros Milpas. All the other recs in north county are good and anywhere else in the world would be excellent. The bar here has been set very high.

Lexington bar to watch game and eat well

I went to Vine Brook tavern and had a great meal. They had one tv on the football game and changed the other one so I could watch baseball. Terrific Caesar salad with a challah crouton and chicken al mat tone Great place. Only weirdness was they had great pizzas that are only "Togo".

Thanks. None of those places came up in a quick look at other chowhound threads or a yelp search. I appreciate it.

Going out with a bunch of customers in Pasadena tonight. Want to watch baseball game but also eat some decent food. Think Gastropub with Tv's. Any recs?

Malbec in Pasadena: a short appreciation

Nice pick. Perfect service. Professional and not in your face. Fantastic chimichurri. Salmon with olive tapenade exceptional. And I like Malbec wine, so...

Bet wings in San Diego (new)

Flat rock eats and drinks " braised wings" are a game changer. Marinated overnight in a spicy chili sauce. They are actually mini-drumsticks. Served with home made blue cheese dressing that is magical. I thought d street bar and grills version was good, but they are not in the same league as this new spot in Cardiff.

Best sushi in little Tokyo

Thanks. Appreciate it. We would be going early before the Joseph Gordon-Leavitt show at the Orpheum which starts at 8pm. So I am thinking of getting there at 6pm---I assume they are still busy at that time?

Go to Lolita's right across the street. The way you find out about union vs non-union is to talk to the actual people. I've been going to Padres games since I moved here in 1988.

Definitely. No beer vendors. Good craft beer kiosks but very pricey and again, agonizingly slow to pop a top, pour it into a cup, take the money and hand you change.

Apparently Bull Taco was there for a while but they closed too. Now it's a "California" cuisine/ Beach type place which looked awful.

Super Cocina is very intense. Some of the best Mexican food in San Diego. In Encinitas, I think SD Native means "El Nopalito" and you want to stay away during the School Year Weekdays during lunch. Apparently they have figured out they can serve inferior stuff to the high school kids, but other than that, the food is consistently great. I always like their chicken burrito but I've recently started ordering the tacos: fish, puerco and carnitas. All excellent. I just had the fried fish taco at Kotija Jr which was surprisingly great. Right out of the fryer. For non-traditional, you can't beat Bull Taco and the view of the Pacific Ocean at the Cardiff campground certainly helps. I need to get back to Mama Testa for the mashed potato tacos very soon.

I haven't been to the Omni Club. But at the Toyota Terrace where they have servers bring the food, it comes very late and cold. We went to Hodad's last month and the burgers were great, but again, the length of time to get them was excessive. We ordered burgers, fries, onion rings and beer and 2 and half innings later we were back in our seats.

Dodger Stadium draws twice as many people as the Padres and I have never had a problem at Chase Field. The issue isn't how long it takes, it's that they can't process even a few people.

I haven't seen any responses about Lolita's. Anyone been?

If there is a line of 6 people ordering food and there are 3 people behind the counter, it should not take 20 minutes to order, pay and receive food. In the first several years, they hired retirees and handicap folks who were non-union part time. They have been replaced by younger, yet even slower and less capable people. It is literally the worst ballpark in America to accomplish eating and drinking and I have been to 23 of the 30 parks.

Has anyone been to Lolita's? Going to game tonight and thinking of going down to National City for el Gordo taco, but Lolita's would be 1000% easier.

Food at petco is mediocre even for ballpark food. Service is horrible. Figure on missing an inning to get some food and a beer.

Great Japanese or Mexican near South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa)?

Went there today. For food, There are better hole-in-the-wall's, but for a sit down place, this place is excellent. Recommend Queso fundido, tortillas, pescado plate (snapper). Carne asada fajitas.

Does anyone also agree with me that Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles is just not that great?

Gower Street. And waiting in line is part of getting hungry enough to think it's great.

Does anyone also agree with me that Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles is just not that great?

People who don't like Roscoe's, have had one of four things go wrong: a) You haven't ordered the fried chicken so it sits on a plate by itself. b) You haven't been to the original location. c) You are put off by slow service. d) You haven't been drinking alcohol.

Great Japanese or Mexican near South Coast Plaza (Costa Mesa)?

I have a business lunch that has to be near the mall but not too far away. I see a place called Tanaka Shoten Ya on Yelp, but I don't trust Yelp, and I was unable to find mention here on Chowhound.

Anyone been to Tanaka? Any other rec's for Japanese or Mexican nearby?

Pizzeria Mozza, Newport Beach - has anyone been?

It's very good, but not as good as LA. Particularly the service which is slow and not as professional. The seating is very cramped.
