This South Mission legend has been a local favorite for 60 years. What makes it so great is that it is the epitome of a San Diego beach bar and restaurant.
The regular clientele is a mixture of neighborhood regulars and San Diego natives, including school teachers, flight attendants, nurses, lawyers and local college students. In the summer this place is flooded with beach visitors from all over the nation, especially Arizona. The popular rooftop patio is the perfect place to soak up the sun, quench your thirst and satisfy your hunger with a refreshing, frosty beer and tasty food. The food comes from Chef Greg’s grill called the G Spot.
They serve beach favorites like juicy half pound cheese burgers, crispy french fries and their famous grilled cheese sandwich. The house speciality, posole, is served all day. It’s a fragrant soup made with pork, hominy and chilies and served with tortillas. For breakfast order the McGregor, which is eggs, bacon and plenty of cheese on sourdough toast with breakfast potatoes. For a great day at the beach, do as the locals do and come to The Pennant for food and fun.
