We are here twice in a 3 day stay in La Jolla. First off, it's got a great vibe as soon as you get near the entrance, it's small but the space is used well. Queue for your food and drinks order, both times each server was friendly and very efficient. Great wine by the glass selection! We tried the... More

Casual dining. I had the bbbt which is a bacon sandwich. It was good. Lots of bacon. The mac salad was tasty. I saw the Prato wedges and they looked very good. The person with me had the special which was meatloaf that was smoked. Very good he said. The garlic mashed potatoes were good tasting. Would eat here again

You can tell a place is special when you see it crowded by locals - kids, oldies, couples... Once i bit into the salad + salmon i understood why. The taste was just so, everything fit perfectly. If you are lucky to get a seat, you can't go wrong with this hole-in-the wall. Better - much better - than many... More

My mom and I stopped in here for a quick dinner. Fast, friendly service and good food! My mom had the pork quesadilla, I had chicken tacos and we split some grilled veggies. Portions were just the right size. The flavors of the food were great!! The only potential downside was there isn't a lot of seating in the restaurant... More

Friday night entertainment by local musicians. Some individule tables and several large tables with benches. Great way to meet new friends when seated at the large tables. The food is presented as the unusual burgers and fries however they contain very unusual mix of flavors. The BLT is the best in San Diego and a total meal by itself. Great... More

Who'd have thought that such a tiny hole in the wall could crank out such delicious food?!? At first glance it looks like an unassuming divey bar and we never would have set foot in had it not been for the glowing reviews. Though the name did intrigue! We happened into Happy hour where there was half off.of wines (incl.... More

Great hole in the wall. Had the chicken sandwich and Jalapeno poppers. Just like you'd make at home.
