11 Best Restaurants San Diego

1. El Zarape is perfect if you are looking for the best authentic Mexican food in SD.
El Zarape
4642 Park Blvd
San Diego, CA 92116
(619) 692-1652Yelp: 4 stars – 1,762 reviews
If you can get past the grunge and the cagey customer service, this place has some of the best authentic Mexican in SD. The House Burrito mole sauce is easily the best in town. But they stopped selling their lobster burritos, so you can’t taste the amazingness of that. That kind of stinks for you.
2. They are known for their array of artisan breads.
Con Pane Rustic Breads & Café
2750 Dewey Rd
San Diego, CA 92106
(619) 224-4344
Yelp: 4.5 stars – 585 reviews Cinnamon bun lovers unite! Baked on brioche, these buns practically melt in your mouth and are loaded with just the perfect amount of gooey, cinnamon goodness.  I’ve heard this place also appeals to vegans, if you’re into that kind of thing.
3. If you’re a fan of grossly enormous portions of gravy and bacon, try this.
Urban Solace
3823 30th St
San Diego, CA 92104
(619) 295-6464
Yelp: 4 stars – 2,157 reviews I recommend the Kitchen Sink, y’all. Pancakes smothered with gravy and bacon and the severe possibility of cardiac arrest. All of my favorite things on one plate!
4. Sometimes you just need a good drink after a hard day, and some of those drinks come with pickle juice.
Alchemy Cultural Fare & Cocktails
1503 30th St
San Diego, CA 92102
(619) 255-0616
Yelp: 3.5 stars – 563 reviews Okay, I’m going to level with you. It’s all about the cocktails at Alchemy. Who wouldn’t like a place with drinks called the Alchemist Mule and the Dirty Pickle? Once you’ve had a couple, everything on the menu is going to taste great.
5. You’ll want to stop here on your mission to cure your hangover.
The Mission
2801 University Ave
San Diego, CA 92104
(619) 220-8992
Yelp: 4 stars – 1,060 reviews See what I did there? Seriously, though, the portions are amazing and it really is the best place to go after a rough night out. The pound of bacon grease does wonders for your stomach.
6. Check out the cutest little bistro in all of San Diego
Café Chloe
721 9th Ave
San Diego, CA 92101
(619) 232-3242
Yelp: 4 stars – 1,221 reviews They have the perfect French cuisine for a romantic evening with the significant other. Or you can stop here after an epic night of drunken shenanigans and stuff your face with delicious mac-n-cheese. That’s an option, too.
7. Sometimes eating well means you need a fat wallet
Sushi Ota
4529 Mission Bay Dr
San Diego, CA 92109
(858) 270-5670
Yelp: 4.5 stars – 1811 reviews Make sure you come here with your parents, your rich neighbor or the sucker who just lost a bet and now has to pay for your pricey delicious meal. You can’t go wrong with the miso seabass. You’ll totally go broke eating here, but it’s so totally worth it.
8. Excuse me while I wipe the drool off of my keyboard
Phil’s BBQ
3750 Sports Arena Blvd
San Diego, CA 92110
(619) 226-6333
Yelp: 4.5 stars – 6,798 reviews I’m a sucker for some good pulled pork, and this place is definitely worth the 8-hour wait. Okay, maybe it’s more like 1-2, but the line around the block makes it feel a lot longer. Give their baby-back ribs a try, too!
9. Fair warning: your diet will be ruined upon entry
Hash House a Go Go
3628 5th Ave
San Diego, CA 92103
(619) 298-4646
Yelp: 4 stars – 4,050 reviews Good luck getting in here on a weekend. Make sure you don’t eat for at least two days before coming here, because the mountain of food they give you is guaranteed to leave you five pounds heavier by the time you leave.
10. Try and only eat here once. Because It’s not humanly possible.
Extraordinary Desserts
1430 Union St
San Diego, CA 92101
(619) 294-7001
Yelp: 4 stars – 3,417 reviews You’ll never find a crack peddler with such artistry and flair. Did I say crack? I meant cake.
11. You might want to bring a doggie bag with you. You’re going to need it.
5010 Newport Ave
San Diego, CA 92107
(619) 224-4623
Yelp: 4 stars – 3,264 reviews This burger shack is a must-try for anyone venturing into America’s Finest City. You’ll find it hard to believe we’re one of the fittest cities in the nation once you see the size of their shakes. Colossal.
