When you are hungry for a good meal washed down with a refreshing beverage, searching the Internet asking, “Where can I find the best food and drink near me?” can take too much time on an empty stomach.

Even better, you can find terrific deals at many of our restaurants, so your wallet will be as full as your belly!

Quench Your Thirst at Grossmont Center

If you are toasting a celebration or want to enjoy a night out with friends, the Center’s lively restaurants are just the place to visit. San Diego is a hotbed of craft beer brewing and locals here have a refined palate for these distinctive brews. BJ’s Restaurant & Brewhouse understands that, which is why it features more than 50 craft beers on its drinks menu; the restaurant has its own in-house label of handcrafted beers on tap for something truly unique. To enjoy a pint in an authentic Irish pub atmosphere, there’s no better place to go in San Diego than Hooleys Public House. In addition to craft beers, Hooleys has a great selection of Irish beers that pair perfectly with fish and chips or corned beef.

Maybe you are more in the mood for a cocktail, which means you want to head over to Claim Jumper. The inventive menu includes delectable drinks such as the Girls Night Out—a mix of three flavored vodkas plus Monin Passion Fruit Syrup, fresh lemonade, and cranberry juice—as well as creative twists on classic cocktails such as the Mai Tai and the Sol Sangria. When tequila is what you are thirsting for, the place to go at Grossmont Center is Casa de Pico. The vibrantly festive Mexican restaurant is renowned for its Cantina Menu, which boasts more than 50 popular tequilas, including signature “birdbath” margaritas.

You can even unwind with a glass of wine or beer on a night out with the family if you go to Chuck E. Cheese. The restaurant may be famous for its kid-friendly entertainment and arcade games, but grown-ups can kick back with a selection from the adult beverage menu.

Dive Into Delicious Food

Grossmont Center eateries also serve tasty food to please your palate. Pizza lovers are covered, thanks to BJ’s and Chuck E. Cheese; both of those restaurants also serve a variety of other dishes, including sandwiches, salads, and savory appetizers. Be sure to save room for dessert! You don’t want to miss out on Chuck E. Cheese’s churros or BJ’s legendary Pizookie.

Sometimes you have to eat and run, so good food and drinks served quickly are what you need. Burgers, Fish & Fries lives up to its name with hearty hamburgers, fish & chips, shrimp baskets, and much more—adding the specialty seasoned fries to your meal is a must! For delicious and authentic Chinese food on the go, Tasty Inn Express is unbeatable. The menu lineup boasts the greatest hits of this cuisine: egg rolls, orange chicken, dumplings, honey walnut shrimp, and other delights.

If you have more time in your schedule to stop and savor your meal, one of Grossmont Center’s gems is Momentos Cafe. This cheery cafe elevates the taco shop experience with perfectly flavored tacos, burritos, sopes, enchiladas, tortas, and more.

For those times when you want to sit down to a great meal with good company in a pleasant atmosphere, come to one of Grossmont Center’s finer restaurants. Casa de Pico is an award winner, and a La Mesa favorite, for its from-scratch dishes that represent the best of traditional and regional Mexican cuisine. Over at Claim Jumper, bountiful platters of steaks, seafood, and signature appetizers and entrees fill tables and satisfy happy customers.
