in, worth remarking about 'cause you don't really go in with high expectations for a random salad at a beer place/burger bar but then it surprises you by being pretty darn good. I tagged "foodies" but really "beer enthusiasts" would be more accurate.Also, I love that there are no TVs. It can get pretty loud, but still a great place to catch up and hang out with people. You're not going to watch any sporting events here though.

seeing nature from above a horse. Would like to come back with family and friends. This place is also great for events like weddings, debuts, and quinceñeras or just a picnic on the grounds. It does not feel like you're in San Diego County when you're here.
