Lunch and Dinner near Spring Valley

Hey All-
Looking for a dinner suggestion anywhere between Downtown SD and Jamacha. I'll be playing an afternoon round of golf at Steele Canyon Golf Club (3199 Stonefield Dr), so looking for somewhere to grab an early-ish great dinner somewhere in the Lemon Grove/Encanto/Spring Valley area. Already have sushi and Mexican recommendations for the trip, so anything but.

Also, we're playing a morning round at Salt Creek Golf Club (525 Hunte Pkwy, Chula Vista). Can anyone recommend a place to grab lunch between the 2 courses, something quick or to-go?

  1. In Spring Valley on Jamacha Rd., try Taste of Italy. I have dined there twice and I wouldnt hesitate to return.. Very good food, wine list, and waitstaff.

    1. You can try Kensington Grill or Blue Boheme. They are close to Steele Canyon and easily to get to from Highway 94, the most direct freeway to take from downtown.

      They are both on Adams Ave, and I-15. Take, 94 to 805 N, take 15N from 805 and exit at Adams Avenue. They are about 20 minutes from Steele Canyon.
