The Crack Shack - The 10 Best Places to Eat in San Diego

Are you looking for the best places to eat in San Diego, without breaking the bank. One of my favorite things about San Diego is that you don’t have to sit down at a fine restaurant in order to get high quality, tasty food. There are plenty of quick eateries peppered around the city that is perfect whether you want to sit down or take it to go! 

 

Here are my top 10 must try best places to eat in San Diego:

 

The 10 Best Places to Eat in San Diego

(for less than $15)

1. Pokirrito

Google Maps

 

A new discovery of mine, this place will definitely keep you coming back for more. You can get a poke bowl or a yakitori box, but the real draw is the sushi burrito. All are amazing, but the Kona Volcano is particularly tasty!

2. Poke Go

Okay, before you think it, no…not all my recommendations are poke, but this place is simply amazing. Healthy and delicious, this spot is well worth a try. The Shoyu Hawaiian sauce with spicy mayo on the side is a win!

3. Woody’s Breakfast and Burgers

Google Maps

 

If you’re spending the day hanging around Pacific Beach, then this little burrito place is for you. This popular spot always has a line, and for good reason. Everything is delicious, but the egg and sausage burritos are to die for!

4. Flame Broiler

Google Maps

 

It is easy to get addicted to this place. The Flame Broiler is a rice bowl restaurant with your choice of beef, chicken or tofu over brown or white rice with optional veggies. The best part is the soy sauce flavored “Magic Sauce” which can be added on the side.

5. Hodad’s

Google Maps

 

Depending on which location you go to, there might be a bit of a wait, but I guarantee you, it is well worth it. Hodad’s is a San Diego bucket list food item. It’s also (arguably) the best burger you’ll ever had. And if not the best burger, then definitely the largest. The malts (often overlooked because to the popularity of the burgers) are absolutely amazing!

6. Elva’s Bowls & Wraps

Google Maps

 

I love the wraps here! I am particularly partial to the spicy buffalo or veggie and feta. But what the heck, forget the menu because you can also just build your own creation.

Tender greens is perfect if you want to keep things healthy. From sandwiches, to salads and soups, Tender Greens offers high integrity, gourmet food. It has plenty of fresh farmer’s market foods to choose from, while still maintaining a quick dining experience.

8. The Crack Shack

Google Maps

 

Jumping on the fried chicken craze, this is a fun spot if you’re in the mood for some chicken and eggs. The large outdoor seating has an open air feel. I love the social atmosphere and it’s the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy some unique tasty food.

9. Native Food’s Café

Google Maps

 

Calling all vegans! This tasty little spot is for you! The chicken sandwiches are so delicious and taste just like real meat! You might actually feel a bit guilty afterwards. The cupcakes are equally as yummy if you’re feeling something sweet afterwards. 🙂

What's your favorite thing to do in New Orleans? For me it's all about the food. I go a little crazy in NOLA. I make a beeline for my favorites; Drago's for charbroiled oysters, Cafe du Monde for beignets, and Willa Jean for all the yummy baked goods. 🙌⠀
