The bread (you must ak for it, but no extra charge) i a must. Portions are such that the is always a doggie bag to go. H9ouse... More

Had lunch with my son here today. Service was good sat outside and it was pleasant. Had the Mahi fish tacos which were spicy and good. My son had the sausage pizza and enjoyed it. Good all the way around.

Mediocre pizza and synthetic food. I was dissapointed by Sammy's. However, I did have sliders here once and they were ok. I think this place used to be good and it's just gotten complacent or tired.

It's hard to be disappointed at this chain! We are locals and this is our "go to" place when we don't want to try anything new. The food is consistently good. Quality is great! Lots of local La Jolla's love this place! It doesn't seem to be as crowded as Del Mar. Easy to dine indoors or outside. We love... More

Delightful place to take the kids. Excellent chopped salads, beet salad, and Italian main courses. The food is better than any of the chain restaurants and its comparably priced.

I have severe dietary restrictions, and they have always accommodated my needs. If you like scrumptious salads, you will like this place. Ask for the Caesar dressing. I also recommend the tomato...
