Good food, good prices SD

Wondering what anyone's favorite restaurant specials are in SD. I know Better Half has a great blue plate special. What else have you tried that's worth trying? Do any of the steak places like Donovan's or Morton's etc have anything along those lines?

  1. Love what the Better Half and other restaurants are doing..loved to see more 3 course meals for under $20.
    I find that I am doing more happy hours or small plates/tapa.
    Brig for the everyday HH is always a fav with me..couple of fish tacos and a marg or glass of wine and I'm set to go.
    Island Prime has a great HH with drinks and app's..McCormicks and Schmicks at the Omni has a killer HH.
    Don't think Donavan's or Mortons are doing any types of specials..that is such a corporate account gig or special occasion.
    I definately am cooking more at home..which I love to do but my love of International travel wins out over going to some restaurant and spending hundreds of dollars on least for the moment..

      Donovan's has tenderloin sammies that are free at the bar. Agree about M&S HH.

        I also saw in yesterday's LJ Light paper that Jack's has a buy one entree, get one free coupon that you can use Sunday - Friday with no early bird restrictions. That sounds like a pretty good deal.

      2. Went to Jack's La Jolla on Wed, 1/2 price bottles of wine and 1/2 off pizzas and apps till 7, wine 1/2 of all night. If you get a pie and an app or a couple of pies they will waive the entree requirement for the wine. Decent pie, nice char.

        1. Better Half's Blue Plate/Stressed Economy thing is now $20, and listed on the website finally:

            We were there recently and the food AND the service were quite uneven ... $20 is a deal but the wine was quite expensive ...
