I recently had dinner with 2 colleagues at World Famous while visiting Pacific Beach in San Diego. I had been there before some years before, had not been impressed, and had not returned. However, we decided to give it another try. Sadly, things were pretty much the same. The menu is interesting, however the food execution is average at best. All three of us found the food to be somewhat lifeless in its taste and for the two fish dishes, we had to question the freshness. The waitress was knowledgeable and attentive. We were there during a week night and it was not crowded. Yet, it seemed very loud. We were sitting inside and I am told the patio is quieter. However, it was extraordinarily cold that evening for San Diego, and we sat inside. There are many restaurants in the area that will visit before giving World Famous another try in a few years.
