This is near surfer/artist town of Cardiff by the Sea, yes, that's a town's name, they are THAT cool. Chiefs offers a casual atmosphere for an authentic Locals Bar & Grill. Their Craft Beer selection is exceptional, with even Elysian on tap. Most remarkable, is a really fresh, hand packed and flame grilled burger for just ten bucks including crispy-yummy... More

I would have given it a zero rating, but I hate to do that based on one employee. Furthermore, I'm no prude, but I am not used to hearing wait staff using four letter words in restaurants and bars. We visited Chief's Burgers and Brew on Saturday, 10/22 to watch a football game during the lunch hour. The burgers were... More

This is a great place for good old fashioned comfy food. We ate here last night (10/17/16) and had the daily special, pulled pork sandwich with baked beans and cole slaw. All of it is house made. I love the Chicken and rice stir fry also. They have a childs menu also. They are not too pricey but if you... More

In town from Philadelphia and this is the first spot we stopped at on the recommendation of a cousin who lived in Del Mar. Beer was ice cold!!!! Delicious! Of course when the beer is ice cold you want to keep drinking and when you drink, you want to eat. We ordered some buffalo wings and burgers and the food... More

Just a random stop for me, I enjoyed a blue cheese burger - with American cheese on it I think - that worked very well. It was a large half pound, and cooked perfectly. The blend of meat was nothing out of the ordinary - which means that the burger and toppings all worked perfectly to keep flavors in check.... More

Five of us dined for dinner. The service was fast and the food was excellent. The inside was a little dark and loud. Thankfully there is outdoor seating. We will definitely eat here again.

Pretty good food, especially the sweet potato fries and the BLT sandwich. I don't find the football decorations appealing, but, so what. Crowded at times, fun to sit at bar.

This place is what it claims to be, a great sports bar. There were plenty of TVs to watch the game. As far as bar food goes, the burger was top notch as were the fries. Service was great too!

Take your pick of fresh made burgers big enough that you really need 2 hands to where you want it. I ordered the Jalepeno Cheese Burger on a brioche bun. Even the burger was stuffed with peppers and many on top. Instead of standard fries I had the Sweet Potato - long stings of crunchy greatness. Damn they had to... More

We stopped here after riding the train to opening day at Del Mar Race Track. The place was busy and bustling, but the staff and clientele were more than happy to squeeze you in. The beers were great and the burgers the best. Be sure and leave yourself time to stop here on the way to or from the track.
