We had a bachelor party here and I was amazed at the drag performances! Performers stayed in character, and went all out to put on a good show. I had a stuffed chicken plate that was to die for and all 20-30 of us agreed the food was delicious!

These girls can really put on a show! Not drag - full impersonation, live vocals. Extraordinary costumes. Why go all the way to Vegas when these lovely ladies bring all your favorite big name actresses right to San Diego? Seriously, the night we were there, Cher was so amazingly believable I couldn't stop gawking wondering how in the world that... More

Second time here and was not disappointed. The food is always good here and the drinks hit you like a pile of Bricks, which is great bcuz you don't have to spend so much money on alcohol to get a buzz. The waitresses are very attentive and the entertainment is absolutely hysterical. It was a great way to celebrate our... More

I was taken here by my friends for my birthday. We had a ball!! The food was very good, the hostess were very nice and attentive to us. Not just the one serving us but the others stopped by to say hello and welcome us before the show started. They kept us laughing. I would recommend this to anyone looking... More

A group of us visited for their Sunday gospel brunch recently and it was great fun. Probably not a place for families and young kids, but entertaining all the same. The hosts were great and really engaging although if you don't like being abused or forced to skull your drink before a refill, maybe this isn't the place for you.... More

I took my family for my father in law's birthday to the Sunday brunch. My waiter was over the top rude in an attempt to be amusing. The show was a lip synching mess. The staff did not appear to be into it and they were borderline harassing you for tips. The booze was so cheap it gives you an... More

What a night I had! Being from UK we had found this place via Trip Advisor - best find. We arrived at Lips for dinner, drinks and a fun time - that's exactly what we got. Me and my friend had no idea what to expect of this place other than knowing it was going to be drag queens. It... More

Lips has the best drag entertainment in California next to heading up to West Hollywood. I have gone to 4 of their shows so far on my way to complete my bucket list of seeing every show. So far I have attended B@#@$ Bingo (Wednesday), Glitz and Glam (Friday), Taboo (11 pm Saturday), and Gospel Brunch (Sunday). Gospel Brunch by... More

Went here on Sunday night with a bunch of my girlfriends. It wasn't a crowded show, but it was still a great time! The show was very entertaining. The $22 entry was waived if you spend $15 in food (per person). The drinks were a bit pricey but to be expected. The decor and atmosphere were both great.
