Excellent fish & chips at Junction 52 in Santee!
The Pub claims to have the best fish & chips in the U.S. Well, I tried them and I can tell you that I don’t disagree! Beer-battered haddock, house-made tarter sauce, etc. I just loved this British pub. Great menu, beers, beautiful decor and genuine hospitality.
I expected the Duke of Deep-Fat-Fried would not disappoint when it comes to legit fish & chips and I was right! They were outstanding at Chicken Charlie’s Table in Rancho Bernardo. Yes, there are fries under all that fish LOL.
We really enjoyed our couple of days up in Big Bear Lake last September! Whenever I stay in a new town I always scout out the local craft beer spots. BBLBC was such an outstanding establishment! Home of the freshest brew above 6,500′. My first pub grub go-to is always fish & chips. Their version here is just excellent! I particularly loved the unique strip-cut fries. Very unique and delicious. I cannot wait to come back and visit this charming mountain resort community.
One of my favorite happy hour spots in Oceanside is Hello Betty Fish House! Stunning open air views of the beach with a top-shelf yet casual vibe. I enjoyed a few small plates, including an outstanding fish & chips plus tasty street taco things with huge daubs of guac! Their clam chowder was pretty average though.
