~ Best Eateries! ~

The Vendor thread is getting cluttered with food talk, so here we go....
A thread for you to burp out the best places to eat.

Nessie Burger is a given. Great burgers from a roadside eatery at the I-15 and Hwy 76 near Fallbrook.

But WHO has the best chili?
I was craving chili a couple days ago, and couldn't think of anyplace that has a good, flavorful, spicy chili.

Even chili burgers or chili dogs.
Pinks in L.A. is "pretty good", but not worth the drive from here.

Best restaurant?

Chris and Pitts is fantastic.

PIZZA is a personal thing but my current favorite is here, Pizzeria Luigi- Golden Hill, North Park, and Little Italy- San Diego, CA thin, NY Style and lots of different versions.

I don't think I have ever had chili in a restaurant, except on a hot dog, and nothing memorable. The chili at souplatation is ok, but nothing special.

Perry's is okay. I've slept in their parking lot before.

Tip Top Meats is amazing.

In Temecula on Jefferson Ave..... Los Cabos Grill. Fantastic Mexican food, great margaritas, good prices.

Also on Jefferson, Vince's Spaghetti. There is no better spaghetti on this planet. It is the same owner as the original that is still operating on Holt Avenue in Ontario. They have been in business since 1947 and started out with a seven stool sandwich stand, and now have a waiting line for an hour every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for their 400 seat restaurant.
I grew up in that area, and my parents used to eat there before I was born. I first went there at one month old, and my kids and grandkids were there withing the first few months of life too.
It is a must have if you are in the area. It's on Holt just west of Central. Otherwise, check out the one in Temecula (much smaller) on Jefferson just west of Rancho California Road.

Still haven't found a really good fish taco place around here. Rubio's is about the best we have for that.

San Diego Brewing Company on Mission Gorge and Friars.

The beers they make are hit and miss but I have always had pretty good and friendly service there, not too expensive and the food is good. The buffalo chicken pizza is no longer on the menu but they will still make it for you.

Personal opinion, best burger in San Diego is at Rocky's on Ingraham street.

Western Steak Burger on University Ave is pretty darn good too but points off for not having beer and being cash only.

Does anybody here remember a place on the 78 just east of the Wild Animal Park called the "Oasis". They sold their burgers by weight and grade of meat. You could order a 1.5 lbs, or what ever weight, burger you wanted. I ate there in the early 80's and had a 1lbs burger, with fries. I was useless for the rest of the day.

I think they had to close after what later became know as "The Bambi Incident"
