Maybe if enough people go there to eat the average tasting food they will have enough money to buy properly sized tee shirts for their wait staff since the ones they now wear are several sizes too small.

Went here for dinner on our trip and was pleased with everything. The bacon wrapped meat balls were awesome. Would come back again.

The Wings here are amazing, and if you're in a group, give the Wing Roulette a try. We had great fun going round the table (especially after our 2nd plate, where we asked for a Mega Hot Wing) waiting to see who was the 'lucky'...More

Bub's had great upbeat vibe and as good of a bar food menu as one could ask for. We tried the grilled wings 9garlic buffalo) and the Buffalo Wing Tots. Enjoyed both very much, the tots are as good as any I've ever had. A...More

Bub's has a really enjoyable pub atmosphere but also with great food. I had their famous Buffalo Wings which well deserve the great reputation. Also had the Black and Blue skillet entree. This consists of Teres Major(from the shoulder section) beef which was really great...More

A great Steelers bar for the fans that wanna watch the game. And doesn't hurt when you go when we get a win!!! Didn't eat there but they have food. Decent drink specials.

Early this morning I started walking from our hotel, the Hyatt, toward the beach. Once I made it to Mission Beach, I took a right to walk along the Watersedge. A couple hours later I found myself in the Pacific beach area and ready for...More

This bar should be removed from the official Steelers' bar directory until owners get everyone on the same page. You can't have workers wearing Patriots stuff and call yourself a Steelers bar. Not many options in San Diego, but the door is definitely open.

We loved this bar, such a great atmosphere. We were in town for the week and weren't sure we'd be able to catch the game but my wife found out that they were a Steelers bar so we tried it out. It definitely did not...More

At 1030 Garnet Ave, it is located in the heart of Pacific Beach's thriving business and entertainment district, just 3 blocks from the beach and 10 minutes from California Interstate 5. The backbone to Bub's longevity is its addictive menu of "non-bar like" food. Besides single handedly bringing back Tator Tots to the educated world, Bub's has created a menu that you would not normally expect to find in a little watering hole in your hometown. Sauces made from scratch. All fresh ingredients. And a staff who takes pride in the product they serve and the service they provide. Don't believe me? Check us out. Don't want to check us out? Fine... Just don't complain when you eat crappy food somewhere else.
