    Had the triple sandwich and was blown away, then tried my sisters carnitas torta and somehow it was even better! You seriously can't go wrong with any item but the torta and pork belly was the best.

    Food blogger Caron of San Diego Foodstuff recommends Carnitas Snack Shack. "Don’t miss the classic carnitas taco, the pork, or the braised Duroc pork belly smothered in a spicy-sweet glaze."

    For one of the city's best burgers, get the Shack Burger featuring a crusty, charred beef patty smeared with bacon jam and aioli and draped with melted white cheddar.

    A must try if you're visiting SD. Parking can be tricky since it's only street, and lines can be long. Looks like they like to change their menu every so often (daily?), so there always something new!

    There’s always at least one meat-free dish, such as the Stuffed Tomato (stuffed with potato, onion, corn, carrot, zucchini, and more).

    The fact they make beets taste amazing means they can't do wrong. They also have daily specials that makes you keep coming back for more.

    We got the Julienne and shack fries. The burger had some fried pork, cheese, lettuce, and a some kind of carrot aioli- it was phenomenal. The fries were a little soggy but the bacon ketchup was great!
