Caramel Corn

but...then it's not caramel. And why would anyone skip butter when they can add it? :)

So apparently, San Diego is the Country's Seventh Best Pizza City

Another place you might enjoy is Nick's at the Beach in Ocean Beach. It's nearby, just on the other side of the Pt. Loma peninsula from your motel, facing (yep) the ocean. It's not exceptional food but it's fine, not too expensive, and the view of the surf and surfers, and OB Pier, is great. Or just go for sunset cocktails. Shades, the restaurant downstairs from Nick, is fun for breakfast (or a cheaper dinner) on the patio and more ocean views. Then just cross the street for a beach walk.

I drive by that place every day - it's modest but clean looking, and the neighborhood is fine, so I wouldn't worry. I think it caters especially to people who are going on the sports fishing boats that leave the Pt. Loma docks across the street, so there are a lot of people leaving the hotel at 3 or 4 a.m. to catch those early boats. Hopefully they're quiet!

Given how many areas you want to see while you're here, I agree you should go to Phil's for BBQ rather than all the way to Lemon Grove, where there won't be much else you'd want to visit. Phil's may not be "authentic" but when it comes to BBQ, people have passionate opinions and you'll never find general agreement. Phil's is wildly popular and the food is tasty. But be aware there can be long lines to get a table - go early or at an off hour.
Enjoy your visit!
