“Great pizza and salad that's made on the fly with high quality ingredients”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013 via mobile

Stopped by this place based on TripAdvisor ratings. I can confirm they are dead on. The salad was fantastic. And the pizza comes in white or red with sseveral fresh toppings available. If you have ever been to Deweys you will feel tight at home. Give this place a try. Great place to grab a drink as well

“Not much of a decor but boy, what a pizza!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

I found this restaurant in tripadvisor. I went with my wife before a Padres game on may 4th 2013.
From the outside, it doesn't look like much. Stepping into the place, it doesn't look much better.
However, we were well treated by the staff, and the pizza was delicious!
I urge you, if you're in the San Diego area of visiting, to try Basic's pizza only once. Once you taste it, you won't forget it.

“great pizza”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

best pizza i've ever had was the mashed potato pizza at basic!! we went on a thurs night and the place wasnt that busy so we sat at the bar and enjoyed some great craft beers and the mashed potato pizza which was sooooo good!!!
we went back saturday and it was totally a different scene! line ups out the door and club wear! the pizza place was turned into a night club and was PACKED! we noticed the girls were going to the front of the line and flirted a bit and got right in, so thats what we did and got past the line. its a lot of fun, u should def go check it out !

“Cool Restaurant/Social Hangout”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This place looks like a garage from the outside but is always hopping with good adult crowd. Pizza is great and the staff is awesome... very cool hangout for locals 21 and up and a great way to meet people in the area. Very close to Petco park and good place to be any night of the week.

“Delicious and reasonably priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

We ate here on a Tuesday night while visiting San Diego. The food was "basic" but oh so very delicious! We shared the salad and a small pizza. It was plenty of food for 2 of us. The prices are very reasonable compared to other places we ate in San Diego. The atmosphere was hopping and next time we are in San Diego, we will go back!
