5 "Casual Weeknight Dinner" restaurants in San Diego.
A good casual weeknight dinner spot is hard to find. It’s a step above a make-your-own bowl place, but not somewhere you’ll need a reservation. It shouldn’t be too expensive, you should be able to talk instead of shout, and your dinner shouldn’t take more than an hour. These spots do it all.
Dija Mara in Oceanside is where to go for really good Indonesian food, a great beer and wine selection, and a super relaxed vibe.
Galaxy Taco in La Jolla serves high-end versions of classic Mexican street tacos and a variety of really good cocktails.
The Crack Shack in Little Italy is where to go to a really good fried sandwich on a huge patio.
The Balboa Bar & Grill is where to go in Banker’s Hill for really good burgers and a few beers in a space your grandpa would like.
