Review of Bub's at the Beach

Bub's at the Beach
Ranked #792 of 4,853 Restaurants in San Diego
Price range: US$10 - US$15
More restaurant details
Restaurant details
Dining options: Lunch, After-hours
Neighbourhood: Pacific Beach
Description: At 1030 Garnet Ave, it is located in the heart of Pacific Beach's thriving business and entertainment district, just 3 blocks from the beach and 10 minutes from California Interstate 5. The backbone to Bub's longevity is its addictive menu of "non-bar like" food. Besides single handedly bringing back Tator Tots to the educated world, Bub's has created a menu that you would not normally expect to find in a little watering hole in your hometown. Sauces made from scratch. All fresh ingredients. And a staff who takes pride in the product they serve and the service they provide. Don't believe me? Check us out. Don't want to check us out? Fine... Just don't complain when you eat crappy food somewhere else.

Nice atmosphere for a game, good wings, and beer. They have large windows and outdoor seating that has a pretty good view of downtown, which I prefer because I don't feel like I'm rubbing shoulders with everyone in the restaurant.

Casual setting, service was very prompt and helpful. The burger I had was delicious and good size. It's just a real easy, comfortable place to have a decent meal. Now the bloody mary bar was great - had all the fixings you need, and it was fun to experiment with new ingredients. Enjoy a burger, a beer, and watch one of many games on their many television screens.

We had seen reviews for Bub's before we left for San Diego and put it on our list of places to find. We stayed in Pacific Beach and this was easily walking distance from there. It's not on the beach but in a rather quirky area of "town" with some cute shops and lots of tatoo parlors... We went for lunch and each had delicious steak sandwiches. Mine was the Beach Break steak sammitch (thier spelling) with mushrooms & onions, DH had the Pittsburg steak sammitch. The Beach Break had chunks of tender, delicious steak, smothered in cheese and topped with onions and mushrooms (extra) while the Pittsburg was more sliced/shaved steak, but equally delicious and topped with cheese and onions & peppers (extra) and both were served on a perfectly toasted (yet soft) roll. Best of all the meal comes with tater tots! heavenly!! Don't forget the Archie sauce for dipping too... Very good meal for not alot of money - great service and cold beer! Definately worth the walk and probably a good thing after that giant meal!

Pretty good food. My wife likes the Philly style sandwich she got. Can't remember the name. The wings are good and they have some really good sauces. Nice patio too!

Fair prices for the area. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

Mad a late night run. Called ahead for take out, which was cool. The food was ready quickly and was good. I regret not staying a little longer. Had a lot of TV screens showing baseball games. Not bad for a quick bite.
