Taste of Grossmont is an amazing opportunity to feast on cuisines from around the globe—Mexican, Italian, Irish, American, and more—all in one day. More than 20 of Grossmont Center’s participating restaurants will serve delectable bites of their signature dishes that can be savored while spending the afternoon shopping with family and friends. We are proud of our diverse lineup of high-quality eateries and Taste of Grossmont is a worthy showcase for them.
Which Restaurant Will Be the Taste Of Grossmont Fan Favorite?
This year, there are bragging rights at stake for the restaurants. Taste Cards can be purchased at Guest Services and once you’ve made your way around the mall, return your card to Guest Services to vote on which dish is the best. The top vote-getter will be crowned the Fan Favorite. With so many great flavors and tastes, it may be tough to choose just one favorite!
Guests must drop their Taste Cards back at the Grossmont Center booth in the Center Court by 4:45 p.m. to be eligible to vote for the Fan Favorite. That will also make them eligible for entry into our fantastic raffles. To be eligible to win raffle prizes, guests must be present at 5 p.m. when we will draw the lucky winners.

Food and Taste Cards
Visitors from La Mesa and beyond come to the hugely popular Taste of Grossmont for a true gourmet experience. Also appealing is the price: Free! All Taste Cards include a sample dish from each participating restaurant. Register here for your free taste cards.
Only one sample will be given per Taste Card at each restaurant. Children must have a Taste Card if they wish to have their own sample. We encourage families with small children to share single samples received from each participating restaurant.
Know Before You Go
Parking is always free at Grossmont Center. Printed Taste of Grossmont tickets are preferred, but tickets on mobile phones will be accepted. Guests are welcome to buy tickets for other people, so the name of the person picking up the wristband doesn’t need to match the name of the person who bought the ticket. However, only one Taste Card will be distributed per paid ticket.
Guests will bring their tickets to the Grossmont Center Tent, located in the Center Court near Guest Services, to get their wristbands for the event. A designated line for wristband distribution will open at 1 p.m.; starting promptly at 2 p.m., guests with wristbands will receive their Taste Cards and can visit the participating restaurants until the event ends at 5 p.m. In the event that a guest cannot attend Taste of Grossmont, refunds are available up to the day before the event.
Taste of Grossmont is an afternoon not to be missed! So get a group of family and friends together, and bring an empty stomach and adventurous taste buds. We look forward to seeing you at this fun—and flavorful—event at Grossmont Center!
