Hi SD hounds! Congratulations on getting your own board (finally!)
We're headed from OC down to your fair city for a concert in Mission Valley (near the 8 and Qualcomm Way) on Sunday and are looking for a place to have an early dinner. The concert's at 7 and there's likely to be a scrum for seats. We'd like to sit and have an early dinner, which I know can be really difficult. The concert is going to go long and I have to work in Burbank on Monday at 0800 hours, so slipping dinner to the back side of the concert is not really an option.
Any kind of food—I am a huge aficionado of ethnic holes-in-the-wall and haunt Little Saigon looking for things like blood cubes and sea snails—but it would be best if entrees were sub-$20 since we're not terribly wealthy. Great Mexican would be awesome too (while we have some real gems, the Mexican food situation in OC is shocking compared to the Mexican population in OC).
I don't know anything about SD geography or traffic patterns (despite only living an hour and a quarter away) so I'm a little bit stymied by the posts on the board.
Thanks in advance, and let me know on the LA board if you ever need rescuing from the dismal food on Harbor Blvd. in Anaheim!
