      I second South Beach. It's near the pier in O.B., so you can absorb the neighborhood funkiness before and after you eat. Fantastic fish tacos. I live in MA, but I try to get there every trip to San Diego. In fact, I'm wearing a South Beach t-shirt this very second!

    2. I'm originally from SD (live in LA) and a group of foodie friends and I jsut went to SD three weeks ago for a burger and food crawl. Best Burgers - Rocky's and Hodads. Our group of six split between these two as our number ones. Here's a cut and paste from my research (other highlights - Dumpling Inn - reminiscent of Din Tai Fun for the soup dumplings they had and their fish Entrees were MAGNIFICENT)

      • Hodads in OB 619-224-4623 5010 Newport Ave. Ocean Beach CA 92107
      • Rocky's in PB – Basic but good – “BEST BURGER EVER EATEN” recent post this week 3786 Ingraham St San Diego, CA 92109
      • Tiolis Crazy Burger: A relatively new place to the game, but darn good. They have some 27 variations of burgers - including Gator and Rattlesnake. I personally prefer the Dansk, which is a simple burger with lots of bleu cheese on top. Darn good french fries too. GUY FIERI WENT HERE - Also a solid second or third: 4201 30th Street, San Diego, CA 92104,
      • Sammy's - They have mini Kobe beef sliders on sweet Hawaiian egg bread. And Pizza and other stuff – last stop after checking in? They have one in Gaslamp. 770 4th ave
      • Phil's BBQ in Sports Arena – #1 of all Restaurants on trip advisor - grind own chuck – open flame Lot’s of BBQ stuff too – ribs, etc. 3750 Sports Arena Blvd, San Diego, CA 92110
      • Linkery in North Park – more fancy “farm to table” and more sausages/links 3794 30th St. San Diego, CA 92104 (619) 255-8778
