Top Burgers in San Diego - Link

There are quite a few places around town to grab a tasty burger.  See the article linked above for such favorites as Hodad's and at the Torrey Pines Lodge.  We would also add In-N-Out, Shake Shack, and Rocky's (21 and up) to this list.

Fish Tacos - Link

It all started here.  This is an older list, but it does not disappoint.  Oscar's has a location in PB, just south of La Jolla.  Another location near the Torrey Pines Hotel is Roberto's on Carmel Valley Road.
