Thanksgiving dinner in San Diego

Hello all!

We will stay at the Holiday inn Bayside near the Point Loma and downtown/old town areas. Any places around that serve a good Thanksgiving dinner for around $30 a plate (give or take five dollars)? This will be for three adults.

        1. Just received an e-mail from McCormicks and Schmicks at the Omni Hotel in the Gaslamp for a 3 course meal at Thanksgiving for $ looked pretty good.

          1. Albert's inside the SD Zoo does a nice Thanksgiving meal. And you are in the zoo when you're done, so you can walk off the stuffing. You just have to be okay with their traditional substitution of free-range gibbon for turkey. Mmmmm...roasted gibbon.
