San Diego North:Carlsbad, La Jolla, Balboa Park with kids

bubbles | Jul 2, 200307:16 PM

I'm hoping for some suggestions for where to take my family for lunches and dinners on our upcoming vacation. If you didn't catch it in the subject line, we've got kids!

We're staring off at Legoland in Carlsbad and, if we don't eat in the park, may need a dinner spot in Carlsbad or on our way back to our hotel, which is west of La Jolla (Woodfin Suites). Next day we'll be going to the aquarium in La Jolla, the train museum in Balboa Park and then we'll spend the late afternoon/evening at Balboa Park. Our last day will be spent at either Sea World or the zoo.

I'm looking for casual places where we can order at a counter or such and sit easily (we have 3 kids under 6). Any kind of food, but goooooood. Taquerias with excellent fish tacos, burgers for kids and "big kids", decent hot dog stands, really good corn dogs, you get the idea. I'd even take a suggestion for a REALLY family friendly sit-down restaurant, if the food is worth it. I'm used to suffering food-wise through these family trips, but I thought I'd give the board a try -- my fingers are crossed!
