Help please, I'm coming to San Diego too

Like many before me, I too am coming to San Diego and would love some restaurant advice. Unless my (business) hosts take us out, we've got three dinners and two breakfasts worth of chow. I'll have a couple of colleagues with me of unknown adventuresomeness and/or willingness to travel so I'd love some safer/closer recommendations as backup. We're staying on Pacific Highway, just south of the airport.

Left to my own devices, I think I'd go for
o sushi
o Mexican (and/or Cal/Mex; fish tacos would be a bonus)
o something close to the airport before our late flight out.

From poking around here, it seems like the board favorites are
o Izakaya Sakura
o Super Cocina
o and ??? (perhaps Point Loma Seafood)

I'm a little concerned that the first two may be a bit far from the hotel for my colleagues and that the (Formica) decor at Super Cocina may be a little too scary. Any other thoughts for closer/safer (yet still delicious) sushi and Mexican would be appreciated, as would any recs near the airport. Then again, I could just ditch the guys from work...

Finally, if any of these places are open late (we arrive at that airport ~8 on the first night), that would be great too.

Thank you all in advance, and if you're ever coming to Boston, please ask on the Boston board, we'd be glad to direct you to deliciousness.
