It would be great if anyone wanted to contribute and update this thread.

- Pizza at Newport Pizza in Ocean Beach (ideally accompanied by a beer :-) I love the crust here and the wonderous yeasty smell of the place.

- Grilled Pork Banh Mi at Pho Point Loma - one of the best grilled pork Banh mi's Ive had!

        Super Concina, had pork in adobo sauce, $3.99 for a small plate, great size for lunch. You can also get a large for $5.99 or a combo choice of 2 for $7.99.

        Marisco's Truck on Univ & 35th., fish taco for $.99 with soup. Always great.

            Wow, that's an amazing deal. Too bad I don't live closer.

            Clearly, they're trying to move the food out before they close so they don't have to toss it. How's the quality of the products and how's the freshness?

              You're right, it's whatever is sitting in the steam trays at the end of the day. It's still good though since it was probably cooked in the afternoon for the dinner rush.

                Just an update:

                I went last night and they changed the start time to after 7:30pm for the discount.

            My pick is Vine Cottage in La Mesa. I love to get their house salad for $5, really good salad. And I follow that with the lamb chops appetizer, 4 lamb chops of very good quality for $11.

              Chicken doner at Kabob Shop in Mira Mesa or downtown. Yum. Don't know how much it is exactly, but definitely less than $10. If you add their awesome fries, it might get to $10, but I doubt it.
