Best bacon in San Diego?!

I agree with Albertson's. Not really "gourmet" bacon, but so much better than the packaged kinds. Also, nicely smoked, and sliced thick. Much easier to run to Albertson's for a quick bacon fix.

Pizza Restaurants in San Diego

After a month or so of checking out this site and reading all of your recs, I finally made it down to Lefty's Pizza last night. As a die hard Chicagoan, I am always skeptical when I hear that a restaurant has "real Chicago" style pizza. OMG!!! Lefty, thank you! I ordered one of their stuffed sausage pies to go. It took an hour for them to make it (as advertised), but was it ever worth it. They even nailed the way the outer crust is crisp on the outside, and chewy/gooey on the inside. IMHO, Lefty's is the place in S.D. for real pie. I can't wait to get back there and try something different. Not much of a "restaurant", more of a take out place, but they do have a few tables outside for you to sit and enjoy a fresh pie and enjoy the neighborhood.

hot dog san diego

The BEST Chicago style hot dog in town belongs to Windy City Beef in La Mesa. Family run joint in the Vons shopping center at Navajo and Fletcher Parkway. Dogs the way I grew up with, and an Italian Beef sandwich to die for. The owner roasts his own beef, and will sit and carve it all day in front of you. AMAZING food if you're craving a little bit of Chicago.

Craving "East Coast" diners in East Cty. San Diego

My friends and I were talking, more like drooling, about the good ole days back home. A diner or little mom and pop cafe, where you could always get a good hot meal at a good price. We all know about The Studio Diner in Kearny Mesa, but what else is there? I'm looking for a great reuben sandwich, big salads, greek chicken, huge breakfasts and a great atmosphere. Whatcha got for me??? Thanks for the help!!
