“Perfect little place”
Reviewed 30 July 2014 via mobile

When looking for a place to grab dinner on a business trip this location was across from another I had visited. It seemed like an upscale place and was unsure at first. I showed up and was pleasantly surprised to the size (smaller than expected), but great food. Enough room to eat in or order ahead and grab takeout. Friendly staff good atmosphere.

One of the few places in la Jolla with nice employees and friendly service. Good food... jalapeno poppers were awesome.

“Good place for a quick bite”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

My family got some take out for a quick bite and were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. We try to never eat chains, while there is limited seating and average ambiance, getting food to go from here is a no brainier. Very good burger and pub food and nice selections of beer and wine make this a nice alternative to run of the mill food.

“GREAT food!”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We stopped here for lunch after a bike tour. I'm glad I had read about it ahead of time because the place is easy to miss being located inside of small strip with a few other stores.
We had the La Jolla Plate & the Pork Quesadillas - both were amazing. Don't miss the coconut-jalapeño rice!
