Food Review: Baja Grill for the Win!

I love everything about this place! My favorite margaritas in town are $4 during happy hour (4-6 Mon-Fri). They have the best thin home-made chips and salsa. They seem most similar to Chili’s chips and salsa. I know that doesn’t sound like a compliment, but those are my favorite….and here at Baja Grill, the salsa just tastes fresher!

And then…the tacos. These are better than in Cali! My favorite is the Cuban Taco. It tastes fresh and light, yet full of tender pork!  I also love the Honey Chipotle Taco, though this tastes more like a pulled pork sandwich…just the best pulled pork sandwich ever.

This place really brought me back to San Diego, CA, where some of the best tacos are born. I am SO glad a place this delicious is doing well and I will be back many times.

Food Review: Flyway Brewing

I’m not a HUGE beer person, but I am a huge pretzel person. Here’s my take:
-Environment- very cool, modern, and spacious.
-Blueberry Wheat Beer- this was my fav, but I like light, fruity beer….most IPA lovers will not like this.

Two flights of beer

-Pretzels- a little disappointing, too thick and under done for my taste, but I like pretzels well done.. Not much buttery flavor. I tried the plain one, it came with really good course ground mustard. I also tried the sriracha one with madras mustard. It wasn’t sriracha-y enough and that mustard was downright gross. Everyone I was with agreed. The lavender salt pretzel with honey mustard was by far the best. Not too lavender-y, but lots of good salty flavor. The honey mustard was pretty typical, very sweet.
