Absolutely a fantastic place to eat. The food here is so good and the staff is friendly. Next time I’m in San Diego I’m defiantly going back. A scene in the movie Top Gun was filmed here.

This place offers outdoor seating, has a comprehensive BBQ menu, and was a spot where a scene from Top Gun was filmed. We had a large group of 8 and the service was fast and polite. I would return.
