Heading down from OC to SD tomorrow to catch the Cubs-Padres game in the afternoon and we are looking at getting out of there right after the game to head towards home. My dad is visiting from Chicago and wants to take my family out for a last meal before flying back, so we are looking at something along I-5 in northern San Diego county. Tastes run pretty simple...a great steak/chicken American-kinda place that's got great food, is family friendly and casual, and a great value.
I will NOT wind up at the Andersen's Pea Soup/TGIF again! Any advice/recs is appreciated.
