    If you have a peanut allergy, don't eat here. They use peanut oil to fry their food. I love their beer though.

    One of San Diego's Holy Trinity of Beer Pubs with Toronado and Hamilton's being the other two. The parking lot definitely qualifies as THE worst in SD. Door Ding Central. Consider yourself warned.

    The roast beef torta sandwich on Fridays is amazing! Parking is always tough. If you get there before 11:30 am for lunch, you might have a chance at finding a spot in the lot.
