Fun bar with nice beer selection

We bring Freinds here sometimes after sailing for the beer and deep dish pizza in the bar. Can get very crowed and noisy, but that's what we like after a quiet calm day of sailing. LoL

Pretty good, but not great, pizza but a decent selection of beers. This place was quite busy when our group of nine ate dinner there and we waited for a bit. In hindsight the wait was probably not totally worth it. Not that anything was bad because it was not but an average rating probably sums up the thoughts of... More

My wife and I were visiting friends in Mission Veijo when we decided to dine out. When I mentioned Italian both said 'Selma's" in unison. Needless to say that was where we went. Located on Avenida De Las Flores in Rancho Santa Margarita, Selma's sits back in a shopping center. When you walk in it's like walking into an old... More

Not the best pizzas (salty and stodgy). Slow service. Loads of other pizza places in the area so we'll probably not go back.

Food is just OK. Service is slow. Good family place. Some arcade games in the back room. The pizza is the best thing on the menu. I've been here many times solely because it is convenient and the quality of the food is always mediocre.

We went with a party of 9. 4 adults and 5 kids. We were seated quickly. Our waitress must have been having an off night- but clearly she did not love her job on the day we visited. The kids were able to play video games in the back area which has a TV screen in the area where we... More

I was just passing through RSM, looking for something to eat and noticed Selma's was in my Entertainment Book. So I just got a mushroom pizza to go. I'm not a big fan of deep-dish, but I ordered it here since it appeared to be their specialty. I noticed, while waiting for my pizza, that beer-lover's would especially like the... More

This is hands down the best deep dish in RSM... the service has always been great, the pizza's are top notch and they have a pretty good beer selection! In addition to the pizza, other dishes are very tasty!

We go here about twice a month and get pizza and salad. Very good food at a reasonable price. Sometimes the service is lacking and if its really busy it can take awhile to get your food, but a good atmosphere. Get there early if going on Friday/Saturday night as a 20-30 minute wait starts around 6pm most weekends.

My wife and I occasionally enjoy a good Chicago style (deep dish) pizza, and our usual is BJ's. A couple less-than-stellar visits to the BJ's in RSM had us willing to give Selma's a second try - we'd previously had a take-out, years ago, and just weren't impressed. This time, we ate at the actual restaurant, and our opinions haven't... More
