Requesting feedback for cheap eats list for San Diego visit

jpiglet | May 28, 2012 08:35 AM

Hello SD hounds,

My wife and I are eager eaters of cheap, unpretentious, and often 'ethnic' food. We're in San Diego for two weeks from New York, with a car, staying central but driving all around. Following is a list of restaurants that sound up our alley cobbled together from from the last month or so of posts. Can locals suggest edits or additions to this list? I've included a few brewpubs and local foods places at the end because we like beer and it sounds like there is a strong local foods tradition.

Please advise, and thanks in advance. We are going for cheap, delicious, and utterly lacking in fancy ambience.

Also, is a visit to TJ worth it, food-wise?

THANK YOU!

Joe
