My son told me about this place not too long ago. He lives close by, and well I do too. Why we never came here sooner is a mystery! The food is yummy! As well as fun. I never have eaten pasta inside a sub roll! It totally works!! They have really good salads in case you are trying to... More

Went there with my niece and parents while on a vacation. My niece found it. It is a small place in a strip mall, but the food and staff were great. We had the garlic parm fries which were yummy. Everybody had a different sandwich and all were great. Nice flavor. Would def go back!

When in San Diego you have to try the one and only torpasta and/or torsalad. These names are homonyms for torpedo and pasta/salad. It is respectively pasta or salad in a hollowed out sesame French bread roll. For happy hour, get the bread hole appetizer (the "donut" holes of the French bread rolll with marina sauce) and a local craft... More

First of all the concept is GENIUS! Lets start there, pasta inside a garlic roll...AMAZING. The warmth, welcoming and friendly environment is a plus as well. The staff all seems so friendly and down to earth. You can also catch the owner Damien there, interacting with the customers and working equally as hard. The food is fresh, and the ambiance... More

If your looking for a good place to eat ... Look no further. Top 5 food locations in all of San Diego. Maybe all of California. I take my friends from around the world here... They want to go back whenever they are in town. It's a must have for every trip into town. Get there while you can!!!
