Cafe La Maze
Though at least 130 miles and 80 years of history separate golden-age Hollywood from modern-day National City, Cafe La Maze bridges the gap. During the 1940s, this steakhouse served as a playground for movie stars headed to Tijuana, Mexico. Here, they could tuck in to prime rib and lobster on the lower level, or gamble the night away with card sharks such as the Marx Brothers and eponymous restaurateur Marcel Lamaze in a hidden room upstairs.
Today, diners soak up auras of these legends in the same tufted booths where Bing Crosby and Clark Gable most likely lingered at the eatery's grand opening. Candles, chandeliers, and a golden ceiling cast a warm glow across tables as groups savor shrimp cocktails and slice into juicy cuts of top sirloin, new york strip, and filet mignon. Some evenings live music scores meals, and on karaoke nights guests can harmonize with friends as the portraits that line the damask-print walls try to remember the words. Those seeking a more low-key gathering can book the banquet room, which teems with enough red-vinyl seats for up to 70 close friends or cardboard cutouts of their likenesses.

“If assuaging your ego, keeping your cell calls within earshot of only the nearest two booths instead of the entire joint, while providing a tasteless critique of the meticulously prepared, tastefully prepared offerings of the finest beef and seafood anywhere in San Diego county that has for decades satisfied the most discriminating in southern California, this probably isn't the place for you. If, on the other hand a memorable evening of ATMOSPHERE served up in plush red leather booths, low light, classic tunes from the early sixties and seventies, over the top service and the freshest beef and seafood you'll ever want, sounds good...it is.”
“now is better than before, better service and faster too. good service”
