Friendly Service and Amazing Food

I used to live just up the road from Urban Eats and was here at least three times a month. The waiters are so friendly and make you feel right at home from the second you walk in. But, nothing will compare with the food. To start I always had the Grilled Cheese and let me just say that you... read more

First- best meatloaf ever. Even the presentation was very nice, with tomato compote on top of two slices artfully arranged over 'smashed' potatoes and greens. I'm usually hesitant to do meatloaf at a restaurant, since everyone has their own take. This was the best I've ever had (anywhere- DON'T tell Mom). The meat flavor shone through, the tomato compote was... More

My daughter, grandson, & I stopped here because it had some open tables and we wouldn't have to wait. I wasn't expecting the absolutely wonderful food and excellant service we received. Also the prices were great. No doubt about it this is now on my daughter's list of restaurants to visit on a regular basis.

I cannot rave enough about this place. Our server was friendly, helpful and attentive. My friend and I had their Uptown Reuben. It was perfection for so many reasons: Lean beef with no fat at all, toasted perfectly, the right balance of sour kraut and thousand island dressing. Heavenly really. The homemade chips were excellent as well. Will definitely come... More

My wife, 20 year old son and I ate here at 6 pm on Saturday, June 30th. We drove and I dropped them and found parking about a block away. This was a pre-theater meal for us as we had tickets to the Lowell Davies Theater in Balboa Park. That was a convenient 5 minute drive away from Urban Eats.... More
