      1. Thanks for the good tips guys...d;^)

        1. Try Jimmy's Famous Tavern.

          1. Hooley's Irish Pub in Grossmont Mall has good F&C and only $7.

            1. Thanks again guys,

              We rairly eat later than afternoon so that takes some choices away...d;^(

              1. Try South Beach Bar & Grill on Newport in Ocean Beach. Everything fried is quite good there, including the fish & chips. Volume and experience in the kitchen help when fried food is involved and SBB&G has a tremendous turnover all the time. A good variety of draft beer, also benefitting from the high customer volume, and half price appetizers on Monday are also attractive.

                1. Churchill's Pub in San Marcos does a solid fish and chips.

                  1. Blue Water Seafood Market and Grill has my favorite fish and chips in San Diego. This version is a little healthier because the batter on the fish is very light. But they give you a huge portion of fish.

                      That... http://www.chow.com/restaurants/85383... sounds perfect as my wife prefers light batter.

                      1. re: hopheadsd

                        Oh yes. The only unfried items on the menu are the cole slaw and clam chowder. Same menu and decor and "London Style" on the front window as when it was Tugboat Fish N Chips.

                          That looks good guys...d;^)

                          Do they have malt vinegar perchance?

                            Ohyes. Look at the photo of the tables. One bottle on each...

                              Thanks Cathy,

                              I just noticed that when reading the reviews...d;^)

                                I live right near this place and have eaten there many times. Its legit. If the fish n chips dont tickle your fancy, there is always Coops BBQ. Easily the best WEst Texas Style I have in San Diego and Southern California.

                                  Thanks for that tip on Coops hopheadsd!

                                  I was looking for fish & chips for my wife and she turns around and wants to get me BBQ for my BD...d;^)

                                    I have to put in a vote for Anthony's Fishette--love the chips and tartar sauce. Also, we used to love the fish and chips at Ritual Tavern in North Park--however we haven't indulged in some time.
