I'll just copy and paste it here, omitting the things not related to food.

Best Sushi : Sushi Ota.
Best BBQ : Coop's.
Best Hamburgers : Rocky's Pub in Crown Point with Hodads as a close second.
Best Pho : Pho Hoa.
Best Pizza : Luigis, if you like thin crust this place is amazing.
Best Fish Taco : Mariscos German.
Best Brewery : Green Flash is my favorite and they have a different food truck every day.
Best Beer Pub : Blind Lady Ale House.
Best Thai Food : Tie between Amarin (Hillcrest) and Sab E Lee.
Best Indian Food : Punjabi tandoor.
Best Taco Shop : El gordo (Chula Vista).
Best Breakfast/Brunch : Snooze - Hillcrest.
Best Coffee : Cafe Calabria.
Best Sandwiches : Rubicon deli.
Best Ice Cream/Gelato : Miraposa's.
Best Chinese Food : Spicy City on Convoy.
Best place to get a drink with a nice view : Wonderland.
Best Philly Cheesesteak : Gaglione Bros.
Best Vegan/Vegetarian : Plumeria Thai in University Heights.
Best cheap eats : K's sandwiches is great for bahn mi's around $3 for a big sandwich.
Best Chicken Wings : Dirty Birds - PB.
Best Happy Hour : Casa Guadalajara has FREE food in the bar with good $5 drinks.
Best Seafood : Pt Loma Seafoods.
Best Middle Eastern Food : Sufi mediterranean in balboa
Best Donuts : Not really San Diego, but Peterson's Donut Corner in Escondido.
Best Cupcakes : Baby Cakes.
Best fine dining : Addison.
Best late night food : Vallartas-- carne asade fries.
Best Ramen : Yakitori-Yakyudori on Convoy.
Best Dive Bar : Cherry Bomb.
Best Beer Store/ Growler fill locations : Bottlecraft.
Best Ceviche : Tie between Mariscos German and Oscar's.
Best place to get a good steak : Cowboy Star.
Best Bagels : Golden Bagel.
Best Bakeries : Bread & CIE. Arleys Bakery in Clairemont, Con Pane Rustic Breads, Hans & Harry's in Bonita.
Best Italian Food : Arrivederci - Hillcrest.
Best Fish and Chips : Harbor Fish & Chips in Oceanside.

I mostly agree with these, some I take issue with:
Best Hamburgers: I'm not really a big fine of Rocky's or Hodad's, I guess I like Burger Lounge more but I'm honestly not too picky when it comes to burgers, my favorite are usually the ones we make at home.
Best Thai: I definitely prefer Sab E Lee to Amarin
Best Chinese Food: I much prefer Dumpling Inn to Spicy City, in my opinion Spicy City is 5 or 6 on my SD County Chinese Food places (not that San Diego has great Chinese food to begin with)
