“Good food at a great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Walked from boardwalk condo. Waited in line for about 15-20 minutes. We ordered for kids (12 and 14) Egg Burrito #3 to split and wife and I Big breakfast #1 to split. The burrito's are huge and flavorful. Our Big Breakfast was tasty. We did not order drinks and had the free water. Sat inside on this day because the patio's were full and a table opened up as we ordered. Typically you wait until you order to get your own seating, however larger groups of people might take opening tables ahead of time. This is about the only hassle, unless you are driving here and then you have to find parking. The food is good, we got out under $15 for four. We will come back.

“Breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Kono's in Pacific Beach is the place to be for breakfast. Martin greets you with a huge smile and places your order. It's just a fun morning for sure.

“Burger joint reasonably priced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Friendly atmosphere with a little beach side charm. We are talking burgers after all. The best thing of all is the price. You get what you pay for. They hadn't increased their prices in 2 years when I was there which is a good thing because anymore than what they charge would be disproportionate. Would I go back, for sure.

“An awesome experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This place is an absolute gem on the beach in San Diego. I found out about it on a Best Of San Diego website. All the locals frequent this tiny surf shack on Mission Beach where they serve breakfast all day. We got there early because we were still on Eastern time, got our breakfast and sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view of the Pacific. It is awesome watching the locals biking, running, and moving all over the beach. We loved it so much we went back again the second day... All in all this was the best place we ate in San Diego.
