One of our go to places in Vista...The Prohibition Burger is one of my favorites. We just had the Ribs, split a full rack...good as Texas. Local Micro-brewery beers served. Bring the family. Also has a nice outside seating.

Prohibition has consistently good food in ginormous portions, but the beer list is generally boring for a place located in "Beervana" North County San Diego. Would it kill ya to make or bring in a Belgian style dubbel guys?

My wife and I took the trip out to Prohibition. We love to check out the plethora of brewpubs in North County. Didn’t care for the beers here, but food was good and the place was lively.
