A fab Kiwi find for New Zealander's holidaying in Pacific Beach!! We enjoyed a really great casual meal of burgers - and a totally delectable appetiser of Kal Maori (Tempura Fried Calamari!) ... but this was no usual calamari - it was the best we...More

Small place near ocean. Was told they have great food so went for breakfast. Was not disappointed. They have a small patio outside if you have dogs which we did. Great selection of breakfast foods. The best for me is that they have tater tots!...More

We visited Bare Back twice in a two-night stay in SanDiego - it was that good! Great burgers, great sweet potato fries, great selection of beers, great sounds and awesome service! If you are in the Pacific Beach area, just go!

We tried to grab a sunset (too cloudy) but that did not damper the meal! Great beer...hefeweizen, amber, cream, and pilsner. Great burgers (including the black bean patty). Chad rocked!!

This is a New Zealand style cafe, and about a block from the ocean. They have about 10 burgers to choose from. Of course, I got the spiciest (Kiwilango) which wasn’t spicy and needed to have extra hot sauce added (shocker). Their sweet potato fries...More

I never thought the cheeseburger could be improved upon but I was wrong! This was mouthwatering delicious! A light rye bun, a house made cheese... serious?! Garlic aioli sauce.... heaven! And the price is right!!!

We rated only three stars because of the food that came from the kids' menu. We loved the burgers but hated the chicken nuggets that we ordered for our two kids. The chicken nuggets that we ordered were really questionable. They tasted like fish fingers...More
