Hacienda Casa Blanca

Outstanding tamale and enchilada combination plate at HCB in El Cajon! I notice they’re now molding their rice serving which I find odd and unnecessary.


Excellent Pretzel Bacon Pub Double at Wendy’s in Ramona!

Kountry Kitchen

I “parked in rear” and enjoyed an outstanding fish & chips dinner at Kountry Kitchen recently! Three beer battered hot & crispy cod filets, served with tartar sauce, plus excellent fries and house salad for only $14.49. First time ordering the F&C here and I was impressed. Clearly NOT off the Sysco truck, that I can tell you. First time back to KK since their remodel and it was absolutely stunning inside. Highly recommend visiting if you haven’t been in a while.

Filippi’s Pizza Grotto

Excellent order of half & half spaghetti and lasagna at Filippi’s in Santee! It was accompanied by a huge, tender and flavorful meatball and one of the best dinner salads you’ll find anywhere. Filippi’s is a San Diego institution, in business since 1950. They’ve grown into a small chain of old-school red sauce Italian restaurants dotted throughout SoCal.

Mi Guadalajara

Outstanding Chimichanga at Mi Guad in Esco!

Mariscos Mar de Cortez

Terrible “crab” enchiladas at Mariscos Mar de Cortez in Ramona! It was actually Krab unfortunately. I was shocked and appalled that a “Mariscos” restaurant would do something like this.


Tasty “Ultimate Omelette” at Denny’s in Ramona! Made with three eggs, sausage, bacon, fire roasted bell peppers & onions, sautéed mushrooms (omitted), maters and cheddar cheese. Hash browns had the perfect crisp and greasiness.

Way Point Saloon

WPS recently offered this great burger special know as the Cali Burger. Very similar to the thin patty, double style burger like you’d find at In & Out. Included lettuce, mater, onion, American cheese, sauce, etc. It was really tasty and very popular in Ramona. I don’t think they’re still offering it though.

The Godfather

Tasty lasagna at The Godfather in San Diego! Not the best lasagna I’ve had, but decent nonetheless. Not quite hot enough in the center mass.

Nuevo Grill & Cantina

Two of my favorite things at Nuevo Girl in Ramona! Excellent carne asada enchiladas!
