From Our Editors

After moving to San Diego in 1987, Matt Shlemon walked into a Texas-style barbecue restaurant, and was floored by the smoky flavor. Convinced that this was the best food he had ever tasted, Matt scribbled a number onto a napkin, offering to buy the restaurant right then and there. The best part? It wasn't even for sale. Regardless, the ensuing hours of negotiations paid off, and the Shlemon family soon found themselves with a Zagat-rated eatery.

To prepare for the monumental task of recreating a region?s iconic cuisine, Matt and his wife, Athena, traveled to roadside barbecue joints throughout Texas to ask patrons for their thoughts. They learned numerous tips and tricks during this sojourn, many of which they incorporated into their business. Abbey?s Real Texas BBQ's signature beef brisket, for example, slow cooks for 18?24 hours inside a hand-built, cast-iron smoker from Texas, which the Shlemons stoke with a mesquite, green oak, and Red Hots, the candies that never stop burning. Elsewhere, they cook the brisket with the fat-cap for holding in the flavor. And, like any good Texan cookbook, the menu makes room for everything from pork spareribs to sausage hot links, as well as housemade side dishes.

The Texan and American flags proudly hang over the counter, and the walls? collection of longhorn skulls, wooden wagon wheels, and Texas license plates evoke even more of the Lone Star State?s character. Black-and-white checkered cloths adorn each table, helping catch any stray morsels of sauce or homemade coleslaw, and adding to the distinctively down-home ambiance.

San Diego Restaurant Guide

San Diego restaurants can be found packed together in the touristy downtown area, but the restaurant scene has notable dining establishments all over the city. Mexican flavors are everywhere, and there's scarcely a restaurant within range that won't have a burrito, tortilla or taco on the menu. But in keeping with the diversity of the city itself, Italian and Asian restaurants are also popular in San Diego.

It's impossible to divorce the influence of Mexican food when eating in San Diego, and iconic amongst the ubiquitous options is the fish taco. Famously served at fish shacks and classy seafood restaurants alike, it is almost traditional cuisine for surfers, beachgoers and fishermen. Try George's at the Cove in La Jolla for a more modern fusion take on the traditional taco or Fidel's in Solana Beach for a more classic fish taco with a history stretching back to 1960.

San Diego food is also enriched by affordable Italian restaurants in the now gentrified Little Italy neighborhood. Buon Appetito should sit somewhere near the top of the list of restaurants to try for its varied menu and fresh flavors. This place does not take reservations over the weekend, but will call to notify of available tables.

For fine dining in San Diego, the trendy Gaslamp Quarter must be mentioned. This is a sure bet for finding quality ethnic cuisine from around the world. The intimate Escape Fish Bar is worth checking out for Asian-influenced seafood, but the quarter also hosts an annual culinary walking tour every June, during which visitors can test the best from participating restaurants in the area.

San Diego restaurants offer diners and casual lunch grabbers an array of options, from the humble fish taco to upmarket Asian cuisine. No matter the budget, there's a culinary delight to be found for every occasion.
