My favorite SPOT in San Diego!!!
Firstly, this restaurant has been here FOREVER! It's one of the only casual places in downtown La Jolla and the food is perfect. My favorite is the Chicago Deep Dish Pizza. The thin crust BBQ Chicken pizza is great too! Sure, there is one or two really good places to get Chicago style pizza in San Diego, but The Spot tops them all.
My second favorite is the Build-Your-Own Burger section. The Lamb Burger is a thing of delicious beauty. They have 1/3 pound and 1/2 pound beef too if you're looking for something more traditional and they have sweet potato fries too. Yum!
They have started to work on their draft beer list and it's becoming quite good. It has a couple of really tasty choices in the local craft beer category and some common staples for those who are less adventurous.
In all, The Spot is a place I can take a date or my mom and still be able to impress both. It's family-style with a old-school flare. The prices are completely reasonable and I almost never spend over $20 on myself including beers. A definite recommendation.
