4 Hidden Dining Joints Worth Finding in San Diego

Thu, 28th Jul 2016

Get off the beaten path on your next dining adventure! Finding a hidden gem of a dining joint just got a little easier thanks to Dining Joint. These dining joints may take a little effort to find, but once you do, you're rewarded with tasty eats and good vibes. Where's your spot?

Hernandez' Hideway - Escondido

Located off Del Dios Highway with views of Lake Hodges, Hernandez' Hideway is a destination Mexican restaurant full of ambiance and funky charm. In fact, you might forget that you're actually just a few miles away from the hustle of the city. A long day of hiking the San Dieguito River Park Trail can bring on the hunger pains. Stop in, enjoy a strong margarita and the Cheese Enchilada pie, and relax for a while. 

Tony's Jacal - Solana Beach

Nestled in the "old school" neighborhood of Eden Gardens in Solana Beach, Tony's Jacal has been the local's favorite since 1946. Looks can be deceiving, as the family-run and owned Tony's Jacal proves. Once you step inside this converted home, a friendly staff and the aroma of authentic Mexican dishes wafting in the air greets you. Try the Turkey tacos and a margarita and you can see why this hidden gem has stuck around for three generations. 

Bistro Sixty on the Blvd - College Area

Cruise El Cajon Blvd. and look for the giant King Pawn Shop sign; this is where you'll find the hidden dining joint gem, Bistro Sixty on the Blvd. In an area not known for casual, upscale dining, the menu will pleasantly surprise you. Try the Sexy Steak Burger, an attractive Angus steak burger with bacon, lettuce, tomato, bacon jam, caramelized onion, BBQ sauce, and fried avocado that pairs well with their fine selection of red wines. 

Mitch's Seafood - San Diego

Located on the working waterfront of San Diego's fishing fleet, Mitch's Seafood is worth finding. This is the place where you'll be able to taste seafood caught fresh off our local waters, many by the local fishermen. You can taste the fresh goodness in all of the sustainable, locally caught seafood, organic chicken, grass fed beef, and local San Diego craft beers. Grab a seat outside and enjoy the views of the San Diego harbor. Try the Fisherman's Stew, a hearty stew featuring market fish, wild shrimp, calamari, mussels, and clams in a tomato-white wine broth and dive into the local scene as you watch fishing boats and cruise ships slowly cruising into the sunset.
