We met our cousins there for our first time. We enjoyed the food & the service was good. I would have liked to have more comfortable seating due to back issues, but didn't know the seating or I would have brought a cushion.

Went in thinking it was a strictly burger place. We had an order of chicken wings, which was great. My wife had tortilla soup, which was the best we had in a long time. I had the best tri tip steak sandwich. Our waitress recommended the horseradish and the au jus, it was perfect. The whole night was lots of... More

My only issue here is sometimes the wait staff takes forever - you almost want to order two drinks at once otherwise you will be waiting...

This is near surfer/artist town of Cardiff by the Sea, yes, that's a town's name, they are THAT cool. Chiefs offers a casual atmosphere for an authentic Locals Bar & Grill. Their Craft Beer selection is exceptional, with even Elysian on tap. Most remarkable, is a really fresh, hand packed and flame grilled burger for just ten bucks including crispy-yummy... More

I would have given it a zero rating, but I hate to do that based on one employee. Furthermore, I'm no prude, but I am not used to hearing wait staff using four letter words in restaurants and bars. We visited Chief's Burgers and Brew on Saturday, 10/22 to watch a football game during the lunch hour. The burgers were... More

This is a great place for good old fashioned comfy food. We ate here last night (10/17/16) and had the daily special, pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and cole slaw. All of it is house made. I love the Chicken and rice stir fry also. They have a childs menu also. They are not too pricey but if you... More

In town from Philadelphia and this is the first spot we stopped at on the recommendation of a cousin who lived in Del Mar. Beer was ice cold!!!! Delicious! Of course when the beer is ice cold you want to keep drinking and when you drink, you want to eat. We ordered some buffalo wings and burgers and the food... More

Just a random stop for me, I enjoyed a blue cheese burger - with American cheese on it I think - that worked very well. It was a large half pound, and cooked perfectly. The blend of meat was nothing out of the ordinary - which means that the burger and toppings all worked perfectly to keep flavors in check.... More

Five of us dined for dinner. The service was fast and the food was excellent. The inside was a little dark and loud. Thankfully there is outdoor seating. We will definitely eat here again.

Pretty good food, especially the sweet potato fries and the BLT sandwich. I don't find the football decorations appealing, but, so what. Crowded at times, fun to sit at bar.
