Mountain
“Ridiculous 360 degree views of San Diego, the ocean and all the way south to Mexico. Sunrise and Sunsets are beautiful and you can walk around a little bit. Short drive and worth stopping by at some point during your visit.”

Butcher
“I LOVE this store. Now for me its all about the butcher shop and this place is top 3 in san diego for selection and quality, the pre marinated carne asada, pollo asada are incredible as well as the poke. The BBQ shack in the parking lot has tons of options you can take home pre cooked, hey your on vacation so its cool to take it easy but also enjoy some nice home cooked food! ”
