Linda Vista/University of San Diego/Mission Valley

I just moved to San Diego and live near the University of San Diego. I am looking for some new spots for good food. I am not picky about type of cuisine, just as long as the food is tasty and the price isn't outrageous. I'd love to get some suggestions from people who know the area.

  1. The union-tribune's website at is a great place to start with general questions for restaurants in a specific area or by specific cuisine. Failing that you can search the archive here.

    1. The Banh Mi at K Sandwiches in Linda Vista is a good bet, cheap and tasty.

      1. The whole shopping center with Viet Dong and Bale French bakery should be a stop. There's an evening taco truck in the parking lot of Joe's $.99 Store. Further north you'll find Carmen's, east side of Linda Vista Rd. a little past Mesa College Dr., stop in and try a burrito. Across the street is K's Sandwiches and Pho Pasteur. On Mesa College Dr., nearly next door to K's is Mien Treung a little hole in the wall Vietnamese place. La Basil used to be next to Mien Treung but it has morphed into Sushi Diner. Continue following Linda Vista Rd. north and it becomes Convoy St. when it crosses Aero Dr. and Convoy is home to San Diego's Asian restaurant community.

        1. a lot of people love JV's on Moreno for quick mexican food and it gets a lot of praise on this board. i tried it for the first time last week with their surf & turf burrito and while it was HUGE, i didn't see what was so magnificent about it. They did have some other items on the menu that looked good though so it might be worth a shot.

              I have had good experiences at Bay Park Fish Co.
