I love to lunch. Yes, not all swanky places, but curb your hate.
Grab 'n Go, India Street (Italian Village Special, no peps)
Sushi Deli (monthly bento box)_
RK Sushi (Bento box)
Saigon on ECB (#33 large)
Pho Pt Loma (#6 large)
Santanas (yeah mex-something or something-mex now) (Five rolled tacos)
Pho Hoa Linda Vista (pho tai)
Bale (bun ga nuong)
Koon Thai (chicken pra ram)
Mien Trung (bun bo hue)
Pieology on Balboa
Luce (Luce burger)
LW's BBQ (beef brisket sandwich)
Maritza's (carnitas burrito - Wednesdays)
These are the ones I end up chowing at most frequently, partly because they're close by. I have a whole long list of other places I love to go to, but I don't get to them as frequently as I do these. I get to those others when I have a specific food mood and try to get to one or two a week. The rest of the time (true confession) I grab grub at one of these.
Ohhhh, now you're talking! Saturday lunch is our "date night". Long and leisurely.

re: Fake Name
If I lived or worked in Lemon Grove, Coops would definitely one of the restaurants among my Frequent Lunch Bunch too. It's far and away the best BBQ in the SD area (and TY again for pointing that out last year). But alas...it's a long drive out there (from the Bay Park area anyway) for lunch.
Hmmm...but now it occurs to me, maybe this thread is supposed to be your absolute favorites for lunch, irrespective of how often you go there? BC?
Wow..some great lunch spots.
Antonelli's Deli for one of the best turkey/cheddar on rye evah. .
JV's Taco shop when I'm slumming around USD.
I can't believe as a true OB'schean being born there that I haven't been but I don't really hang in OB much.
The place looks like a lot of fun and I could see myself with all those kids, partying with a large Kirin and eating some tofu Pho.
Dang..wish I was there!
How's the broth?
Love me lots of ginger and scallions too.
Jealous, as I had a bean and cheese chimi that was delicious but I can only eat half but that bad boy is good later all jacked up with more super hot salsa, cheddar and some avo slices and a cold Stella.
Dumpling Inn for the fab tofu/veggie dumplings..pan fried with a big ol' bowl of sambal with hoisin to dip them in..
Gualberto's on Kearny Mesa rd next to Denny's off the 163 East side..this taco shop kicks ass on solid Mex and they have a free carrot/jalapeno/onions/lemons/lime bar.
